Ciao a tutti membri dopo una bella estate!
It is a pleasure to kickoff the 3 or 4th year of this language meetup, where Italian language lovers have the opportunity to get away from textbooks and subtitled shows and practice speaking and comprehension in a very causal, friendly, and social setting.
This meetup is a classic format: tables at the cafe, plenty of dolce and cafe to enjoy, and plenty of social networking in Italian.
All levels and all ages are welcome, but you are encouraged to be actively engaged into a course or self-study to make the most of your meetup experience.
For our newer members that joined during the summer, don't be afraid to try what you have learned and join in the fun. As we say, you'll likely screw up a lot, but you'll have the time of your life, relax, have something tasty to eat or drink, partake in La Dolce Vita, meet some new friends, and improve your Italian in the process. We meet typically twice a month regularly on Tuesday evenings, at the Little Italy Shop and South Shop, and in between, we sometimes host themed meetups where our members or community members present in Italian on something they enjoy or wish to share. We've had everything from astronomy to olive oil tasting to cooking demonstrations! If anyone has suggestions for meetups, post them or share them. Arrivederci tutti!
