What else would you like to tell our group about yourself?

I'm also the organizer for the Thursday meet-up in Friendship Heights. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please let me know! :-)

How did you learn about our group?

No answer yet

What is your favorite Italian book, author, film, song, musician, food and/or city?

Book: Beppe Severgnini's "Ciao America" is terrific, and I loved "Esco a Fare Due Passi" by Fabio Volo. Food: spaghetti bolognese, mozzarella, olive verdi, pane toscano, pappa al pomodoro, gelato. City: Obviously, I'm partial to Firenze!

At what level do you speak Italian and do you speak other languages?

I took an introductory Italian course in college, but I really learned the language during the two years that I was living in Florence. I'd say I'm fluent by now - the trick, I discovered, is to date someone who doesn't speak English :-)

What kind of events would you most enjoy?

Ciao! Mi chiamo Beth. Ho vissuto a Firenze per due anni, dove ho insegnato l'inglese. Adesso faccio l'assistente administrativa ed anche insegno la ginnastica aerobica. Sono contenta di essere tornata in America, ma mi manca italia lo stesso!

What Beth R. is saying about this Meetup Group

I had a great time! The people I talked to were really nice, and I liked that a lot of people had a pretty high level of Italian - it was really easy to converse with the people I met in this group. As I also suggested to Nancy for the Montgomery County group, maybe it would be fun to sometimes play games or something as a whole group - then everyone could get to know everyone. instead of just the people we wind up sitting near. I had lots of fun and will definitely be coming back!!
