“ I didn't see or at least recognize anyone whose photos appear here .. I participated in the Q&A and spoke extensively with the speakers during the reception, particularly the representative from I.C.E. and chatted with numerous other individuals, even asked a few if they were members (without luck), but again no one from the group came forward to join in the conversations so don't know who was there. ”

“ The lecture's very interesting topic - the history of the Sicilian language and NOT Italian as noted above, left a lot to be desired. The historical outline of the Sicilian language's evolution was adequate and fascinatingly complex. Yes, the one hour time constraint limiting the depth of coverage required to understand the actual progression and development of the language is undeniable. But I would have been delighted to hear how the language evolved and some examples of that development. One or two examples would have sufficed. However, the speaker did fulfill the topics promise to tell us the origins of the Sicilian Language. This being my first time attending an event, I cannot comment. However, I did have a pleasant time talking to some members and discussed and swapped our travel stories. As this was a combined ICS and Meetup event, I cannot fault the Meetup committee for not welcoming new faces. ”

“ This is certainly one of the better meetup groups. Fun times with great people, and very well organized. The atmosphere is engaging, yet very relaxed and welcoming. Everyone I've met has been very warm, friendly and responsive to me individually and very considerate of my level of Italian. Most members are not just proficient, they're natives! What I like best about the group is that it is involved in a wide range of cultural events for everyone to experience and enjoy together, and not just focused solely on the language aspect, which obviously is an important factor. Check it out, I think you'll be glad you did. ”
