School seems less of a drag when you substitute reading, writing and arithmetic with cooking, wine making and learning Italian, doesn’t it?
That’s one benefit of being an adult student in the greater Red Bank area: all the fun classes at Red Bank Regional Adult School, which opens its fall semester next week. Registration is underway.
One of the highly anticipated new classes is a traveler’s dream called “MangiaSpeak and Eat Italian.” While restaurateur and former RBR Board of Education member Peter Roskowinski teaches how to cook Italian, a linguist will be teaching how to speak it. Roskowinski said he’ll his students how to whip up an authentic Italian dinner, mostly from scratch, yet quick and easy. In the meantime, his partner, Amy Wood, will translate English terms into Italian.
“It will be a total encompassing class with the Italian language,” Roskowinski said. “And everybody eats, so everybody has something in common. It should be a lot of fun.”
