Learn and Practice Italian - Beginners and Advanced Beginners

Hi All, we will try again to see if we can get a large enough response for a series of meetings to help those who are just starting out, or have a little basic Italian under there belts.

We will need a minimum of 10 members to hold this meeting. Please do check this site the day before the event to ensure that the meeting will take place.

In order to ensure that we have productive meetings for everyone, we will work from the following book
"Ultimate Italian Beginner-Intermediate (Coursebook) (Ultimate Beginner-Intermediate" by Living Language. Book is available on amazon.com and I am sure on many other sites.

We will review Lesson 1 at our Jan 9 meeting. If we get a good turnout, group can discuss meeting frequency, etc. I am willing to lead/teach these meetings for free, but will need a reasonable turnout and committed learners to make this worthwhile for all.

Hope to see you there and hope to help one another on our language journeys!

    First session was relaxed and friendly. Colette gave some great info about practicing the language and will be posting it on the site -- great idea to have access after the fact to all this great information.

    Hi Colette - I will be picking up my friend Ann @ 5 PM and get to the class as soon as possible depending on traffic. We are coming from the Mt Airy section of Philadelphia and I am allowing about an hour to get there. But if we are not there right at the dot of 6 PM, just know we are on our way! A piu tardi.

    Hi All, Please plan on reading Lesson 1 before our meeting. Berdine, please ask any friend who might be interested in coming to be sure to join our group and RSVP and also to purchase the book and review the lesson. For our meetings, it will be important that we are all "on the same page" (literally ;) in order to make it a productive learning experience for everyone. Look forward to meeting everyone. Ci vediamo presto! Colette

    Colette - I am very excited by this (even though distance and time are a stretch for me - I work in Fort Washington and live in Philadelphia). I am ordering the book from Amazon today. Also sending invites to my friends who are interested in learning/improving their Italian language skills. Ci vediamo presto!

      I live just outside of Philly. I dont like the distance either, but I really want to learn Italian too. And I have to get the book still also!

  • Liza M.

    I am really hoping this will be a regular thing since I am a beginner! I hope we get at least 10.
