I am a beginning student. I have some vocabulary - maybe 200 words or so - but have only limited grammar and syntax which is what I am working on now. If the rate of speech that I am hearing is fairly slow, I can make out quite a bit of it but I would be very clumsy in responding at this point. I am planning to take either group or private lessons to improve over the summer.
It popped up as suggestion in my MeetUp email. Maybe because I was inquiring about other language groups? Not sure.
Am very happy to find this group as I work to improve my Italian language skills in preparation for my first trip to Italy this fall.
