Come and join us to brush up on your Italian or if you want to progress beyond beginners. This 4 week intensive course is geared towards the traveller but incorporates a practical look at the language. We will be looking at different travelling scenarios such as: asking for directions, restaurant scenarios, complimenting, giving information about yourself/family and discussing the weather etc. We will apply what we have learnt in class by going to an Italian restaurant and using the language. Some understanding of Italian is needed as this is not strictly a beginners course.

Urban Anarchy
UA-MELB-15 is a 14km obstacle course that will be held across the inner west of Melbourne incorporating Flemington and the urban wasteland surrounds that lead into Footscray and Yarraville. Headquarters and the safe house will be centered at Flemington Racecourse to ensure ease of access and ample facilities for all spectators and participants.

The Anarchist has designed a challenging obstacle course that incorporates abandoned property and riverside wasteland, river crossings, wetlands, bridges and tunnels. The trail includes a deserted railway all set with a backdrop of the city skyline, graffiti walls, bridges, riverside escarpments, container yards and terminals.

This non-violent, friend engaging event will see the Anarchists move from “safe house to safe house” as they tackle the streets, lane ways and urban geographics that are full of distractions that litter the course. These obstacles have been designed to test your strength, agility and mental toughness.
