Are you a beginner, intermediate, or advanced speaker of Italian?

Difficult to say. I understand almost everything and I can speak more or less fluently, depending on a subject (i.e. the vocabulary at my disposal). Formally, I took Italian courses for 2 years in Italian Embassy in Warsaw (Poland) in 1973 and 1974. Since then I have improved my Italian solely during my, recently more frequent trips to Italy.

Have you travelled to Italy before? If so, what is your favourite place?

Ci sono stato molte volte. Per la prima volta in 1968 con il gruppo studentesco. Poi, in 1973 abbiamo fatto il autopstop con mia moglie visitando molti regioni - anche Sicilia. E' difficile per me scegliere un regione favorito. Forse Toscana, ma forse perche ci sono stato due volte negli ultimi due anni. Veramente, no so. Mi piace tutta Italia.

What do you want to contribute and get out of Edmonton Italian Speakers?

Cosa voglio sfruttare? Contatti con la gente che sono cosi "Italia-entusiastici" come me. Contatto con la lingua. Cosa posso contribuire? Non so prima di vedere che ci sono le possibilita'. Ho fotografato molto, dunque, potrei descrivere i miei impressioni.


My name is Zbigniew Gortel, a physicst (retired) and photographer. I am looking for a place where I could converse in Italian.

What Zbigniew G. is saying about this Meetup Group

I am not attending frequently. This particular meeting was very nice.
