Caffè e conversazione

Buongiorno a tutti,

Vorresti parlare l'italiano con nuovi amici e bere del caffè? Vieni al nostro gruppo, The Ann Arbor Italian Conversation Group, la domenica alle 2:00pm allo Zingerman's Coffee Company (a sud di Ann Arbor).

Se non sei mai stato/a allo Zingerman's Coffee Company, leggi le direzioni qui sotto. Spero di vederti presto!

Directions to Zingerman's Coffee Company (near the airport, not Kerrytown):

Zingerman's Coffee Company is located in an industrial park and is a bit difficult to find at first. Here's a map. You can come in from State St. on Airport Blvd. or from Ellsworth using Plaza Drive. Look for the orange roof!

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!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
