There were Welshcakes for everybody at Modica's English International School this morning. Students learnt about St David's Day traditions and joined in the singing of "We'll Keep a Welcome". Pictured above are Catherine, the owner [first photo, far right] and Paola, the Italian teacher and administrator, next to her, with students. And there is "Welshcakes" herself with students in the second photo.

Courses currently offered by the School include:
English Language courses at all levels for adults and children
English for Special Purposes [Business, Medical and Legal English; English for Banking; English for Travel and Tourism]
Intensive revision courses for Italian high school students [corsi di recupero]
Preparation courses for Italian Maturità and University Entrance examinations
Preparation for University examinations and consultation services for degree theses
Computer courses

The School also offers translation and interpreting services.

If you would like to combine a trip to beautiful Sicily with an Italian language course, the School can arrange this for you.

Please contact the School at for further information on all courses and services.

Happy St. David's Day and glad to see you're teaching your students Welsh (British) culture, too.

Thanks, cherrypie.

Hi, Leslie. I've never believed that you can teach the language in isolation from its culture and I believe cultural knowledge makes it interesting.

I must admit, I had thought you were quite a tall woman.

Emmanuele Lazaridis said...

Happy (belated) St. David`s Day Welshcakes:
Greetings from one with a Welsh Grandpa and half Jewish Granmama. Not sure what that makes me, mind !
We love Wales and have lots of holidays there. Once stayed at a place called Cwm Ivy Farm on the Gower Peninsula. It was run by a lovely,rather quirky, Welsh lady. She had several different Bronze Sculptures in the gardens surrounding the 'Holiday Lets;. One was of a life sized horse; Heaven knows how it was put into place.
Anyway after that trivial piece of info. Happy Belated Greetings, my friend.xx

Love to Simi too.xx

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

Manhy thanks, Trubes. I'm just imagining that horse - I love your "little tales" ! Love to you and Chloe from Simi and me xxxx
