We gather together in a quiet, comfortable room to practice and develop our Italian language skills.
These are fun events, not lessons, and the conversations are light hearted and friendly.
All levels of Italian language are welcome. We often split into small groups, and we speak English to help each other from time to time.
There is no set finishing time, but we usually finish at about 9:00pm.
Tooronga Community Room has chairs, tables, a lounge area, fridge, microwave and bathrooms. It is part of the Tooronga Shopping Centre, and has a supermarket, shops and restaurants nearby.
There is an offshoot Book Club that meets in Richmond once a month. For more information on this see the Book Club page: http://www.meetup.com/ClubTuttiMelbourne/pages/Book_Club/
Because Meetup charges us for the website, we charge $1.00 per attendance on an honesty basis. This also covers tea and coffee.
