Benvenuti a tutti!
This is a relaxed and friendly group always open to new members with the aim of speaking Italian. At the moment we meet during the second week of the month, at 7pm at a pub in central London -- have a few drinks and maybe a bite to eat and the last Saturday of the month. The standard is quite high but all are welcome to come along and see if they enjoy it. All we ask is that people at least try to speak in Italian some of the time!
We also organise events such as picnics, theatre nights, cinema nights and big Italy football matches. Click on "Calendar" on the left pane and then choose the event you want to see. If you are interested enough to come along, just click the appropriate button. An automatic mail message will be sent to you whenever a new event becomes available or if ever there is a change in the event.
The meetups are fun, very sociable and everyone is welcome as long as they speak a little Italian. You'll be amazed at how much progress you make in conversation after just a few events. People are there mostly because they want to improve/brush-up/learn Italian. Beginners need not "fear" any member that speaks Italian very well because they will be patient with newcomers. But with about 40- 60 people coming to the monthly events, it is easy to wander around and find people of your level with whom you feel really comfortable speaking italian.
However if you speak no Italian sadly we are not the group for you. The aim of the group is to speak Italian and if people that only speak English attend it undermines the primary goal of the group.
Also if you have any suggestions for events or any comments about the group, please send me an email.
Regular members have to pay £10 (£5 if you are unemployed) and members have first option on any events where attendance is limited.
Payment can be made in cash to myself or to any of the Assistant Organisers at our events.
Alternatively you can pay by Pay Pal.
