You should have this book from Inglese 1.

However, this book is OPTIONAL for students who wish to do extra grammar practice


Books are available from Libreria San Leonardo.


Changing groups:

PLEASE do not change groups. The timetable has been designed to take into account other classes open to Year 3 students, so there shouldn't be any timetable clashes. If for any reason you have to change groups, you must find someone from another group to change with you. This is to stop any group from being significantly larger than another.


  Extra classes:

There will be 4 extra business skills classes for each of the groups on Mondays and Wednesdays.  Please look at the timetable for times and classrooms.

Group D starts on week 2 for 2 weeks, then Group A for 2 weeks and so on.  The dates will be confirmed in class to take into account recupero and exam weeks.
