'Ciao a tutti!

This meetup group is for anyone who likes Italy and Italian culture - and who doesn't? Italy is so easy to love!

Although it's called the Italian Language group, a lot of our members don't speak Italian - they just celebrate Italian culture. That means that non-Italian speakers are welcome to join us at events! If you want to practice your Italian, you're encouraged to, but it's not necessary. (The only events where it is necessary are the "Cena in Italiano" dinners, where we get together and practice the language.)

This group offers both social events (house parties, dinners, cooking workshops, and wine tastings) and Italian classes. You'll meet people who are interested in language, travel, cooking, and good food & wine; it's an interesting and fun group of people who are very welcoming. Newcomers will feel welcome, so please join us!

 

Please contact me (Erin) if you have any questions.

And if you're interested in learning the language, get a head start by visiting http://www.iltavoloitaliano.com/ This site was created by the previous organizer of this group, and his dedication to teaching led him to create hundreds of lessons, files, videos, and more to help you learn Italian.

 

A presto!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
