In this class, you are quite comfortable carrying on conversations on a large variety of topics but perhaps you are ready for something a bit more challenging to continue to improve your vocabulary and solidify your knowledge of Italian grammar – not to mention insight into Italian culture.
Reading a book has not yet been part of your toolbox as both the task itself – not understanding everything, having to look up too many words — seems a bit daunting and the actual selection of a book, a discouraging process! But if someone chooses the book for you and holds your hand throughout the process by allowing you to tackle it in small digestible bites that you get to discuss once a week… you may be in for a pleasant and highly rewarding experience that will contribute to boost your confidence!
If you are ready to move into the realm of unabridged literature, let the adventure begin!

You will be asked to read a manageable number of pages at home and once a week, you will “videomeet” with your classmates and instructor for discussions, clarifications, explanations, etc. — in Italian of course!

If you know that this is the right level for you, please sign up! If you are not sure, let us help.
Please attend our informational meeting on January 11th or get in touch.

Riassunto del libro

Mentre cerca di stanare un serial killer evaso che è tornato a uccidere, la commissaria rivive le ferite del suo matrimonio violento.
Ritroviamo la commissaria Teresa Battaglia alle prese con una vecchia conoscenza. Si tratta di Giacomo Mainardi, il serial killer che ha fatto arrestare 27 anni prima e che, fuggito dal carcere, ha ucciso di nuovo. E proprio il giorno del compleanno di Teresa, cui l’Alzheimer sta lentamente cancellando i ricordi. Prima che la memoria se ne vada, la commissaria intende portare a termine la sua missione e affrontare il passato: quello che molti anni addietro l’ha portata quasi a morire per mano di un marito violento. Per Teresa Battaglia la caccia al killer è appena cominciata…
