I'm a 4th grade teacher in Chicago. I speak Spanish and I am very interested in learning Italian. I went to Rome this summer and fell in love with the city, and of course, the people. I would love to go back soon, this time speaking Italian.
I really enjoy meeting with the Chicago Italian Language Meetup Group. The warmth from familiar and new faces is a welcome comfort. I am not yet comfortable with speaking the little Italian that I know, but I am never looked down upon because of that. I look forward to every second Monday of each month because this group is such an inviting, encouraging crowd.
