How did you hear about the NYC Italian Language, Food & Culture Club?

i read about it on line

What kinds of events would you like our group to host?

wine tastings, dinners, opportunities for conversation, discussion of issues related to Italy and travel, opera and music appreciation

What inspired you to learn Italian?

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

Do you have any expertise related to Italian language, food or culture that might be useful in planning our future events and activities?

i enjoy gourmet Italian food and i'm pretty knowledgeable in that general area

What level of Italian do you speak? 1. Beginner 2. Conversant 3. Advanced/Native

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.
