Are you looking for a fun way to practice your Italian in a conversational setting? Join the Ann Arbor Italian Conversation Group! This group is open to Italian language-learners of all levels. The format is informal. We talk about whatever comes to mind over some coffee (or beer) and get to know each other. The only "rule" is to try and keep the conversation in Italian, although English is perfectly fine when something needs clarification.
I started this group because I am relatively new to the study of the beautiful Italian language and would like to create an opportunity for myself and others to practice one of the most important parts of learning a language: speaking it!
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.
