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

I love meeting people and love the Italian language!

How did you learn about our group?

I was in search of a language exchange group and found this website while searching on google.

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

Favorite italian book--that's hard as I haven't read too many, but I love reading Beppe Severgnini's essays and articles. Cinema Paradiso is one of my favorite Italian movies, along with La Bella Gioventu. I'm not well versed in Italian songs or musicians, but have a soft spot for Lunapop and Jovanotti. Favorite food? Too many, too hard to choose! Favorite cities, depends-- To live in: Rome, Bologna, Palermo; To visit: le Cinque Terre, Siena, Lecce.

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

I speak English and Spanish fluently. Italian I would say I can almost understand everything. In terms of speaking, I can speak at an intermediate-advanced level, but would love to improve that to match my comprehension and also to express myself more fluidly.

What kind of events would you most enjoy?

No answer yet


Hi! I took Italian language classes in college for a couple years and just spent three months living in Rome and traveling around Italy last year. I belonged to a language group in Rome and would love to do the same here!
