Why do you want to join this group?

When I was a child, my Nonna lived with us and so the first language I ever spoke was actually Italian. Over the years I have forgotten a lot of the language, although I do understand some conversation. I have wanted to reacquaint myself with Italian and recently I have enrolled in an Italian class. The meetup group is a great opportunity to practice speaking the language, to have a greater exposure to Italian culture and to meet people who share the same passion. My sister, Grace, invited me as a guest to one of your meetings and I found it very enjoyable.

What do you want to get out of this group?

I hope to "polish" my conversational Italian, be exposed to more Italian culture and social events, and to make new friends who share the same.

What is your Italian language level?

I would consider it to be "intermediate beginner."


I am a retired Science teacher from Smithfield, RI. and the mother of 3 beautiful adult children. I am a Ballroom/Swing dancer and also love to cook, bake and garden. I am a first generation Italian-American who seeks to rediscover her roots.
