Conversazione da bere

Buongiorno a tutti,

Vorresti parlare l'italiano con nuovi amici e bere una bicchiere di vino? Vieni al nostro gruppo, The Ann Arbor Italian Conversation Group, la lunedi alle 6:00pm alla pizzeria Silvio's ad Ann Arbor.

---------

I want to learn Italian, but I can't speak very well!

Speaking a language is the best way to learn, and you'll only begin learning when you stop speaking English and start stumbling your way into a new language. Making mistakes comes with the territory, so don't worry!

If you're uncomfortable with speaking Italian and would like to attend, I have a few suggestions that could help.

Write a paragraph in Italian about what you did this week. Use an online dictionary to look up words you don't know. Try to memorize some of the sentences you wrote before coming to the group. Now, you'll have something to say in Italian! Again, don't worry if there are mistakes. Making mistakes is the only way you'll learn.
If you still aren't comfortable, or didn't have time to prepare something, feel free to come and listen. Listening to spoken Italian is a great way to train your ear to hear and recognize unfamiliar sounds.
While speaking Italian is the focus of the group, we sometimes break out into English to clarify something that's misunderstood. Some of our Italian members also appreciate the opportunity to practice their English! That's perfectly fine, but please understand that the group is first and foremost an Italian conversation group.

Buona fortuna e a presto!
