Italian Language Workshop - Il Calcio

Il Calcio

With the World Cup in full swing it's a great time to talk about the most popular sport in the world and the national sport of Italy, Soccer.  We will be working on the vocabulary and grammar we need to talk  about the most popular sport in the world, "football" to the British and "Il Calcio" in Italy.  While this workshop is not a “class”, it is a chance for Italian language learners of all levels to get together and help each other improve their skills. There are no teachers, no stress, no grades, no tests, the homework is fun (and always optional) and the facilitators make sure everyone gets a chance to participate, learn and enjoy the session.  The group is relaxed, interactive, informal and above all supportive, making it a safe place to start your adventure with Italian or continue your progress with la bella lingua.  If you are an expert or a native speaker, come and share your knowledge and precious gift with a passionate group of enthusiasts.

The theme for this workshop is "Il Calcio",  Forza Azzurri!!

    Molto bene complimenti, mi dispiace moltissimo non poter partecipare, ma purtroppo non posso non potendo camminare a causa dell'operazione al ginocchio, un caro saluto.

    Hi Eli, I wasn't planning on coming this weekend. I guess I RSVP'd "yes" before and didn't change it. My plans may have changed and I may be able to get there. I will know better tomorrow.
