i read about it on line
wine tastings, dinners, opportunities for conversation, discussion of issues related to Italy and travel, opera and music appreciation
it was spoken in my home by my parents and grandparents when i was a child. i lost touch with it but wanted to refocus on it as i got older. it's a beautiful language and culture and i now pursue ways to stay in touch with it
i enjoy gourmet Italian food and i'm pretty knowledgeable in that general area
i'm only at the beginner level and i'm planning to take another course this spring. my language skills haven't kept up with my other intersts in Italian food and culture
The group sounds interesting and enjoyable. My family background is Italian and I love to travel there. Food and wine are hobbies--I've taken cooking courses in Amalfi and Tuscany. It would be fun to meet people who have similar interests.
