What is your favorite Italian film, book, food, music, city or vacation?

I like films like Cinema Paradiso. I enjoy almost all Italian foods.

What is your interest or connection with the Italian language or culture? Are you of Italian heritage?

I fell in love with Italy the first time I went there. I have been back for four visits. I love the sound of the language, the coffee, the landscape, nearly every view is like a painting. Italy is so sensuous. I can enjoy seeing other countries on DVD's but Italy must be felt.

What level of Italian do you speak? How do you use the language now?

I am a long standing beginner. I have made little progress with the language. I am now enjoying CD's by Pimsleur and hopeful for the future.

How do you hope to use the Italian language? Do you have a goal?

I have a 15 yr. old student whose father is Italian. He says he understands the language but cannot speak it. I think the Pimsleur method will be great for him. We can practice our language together. I would like to read in Italian. I think it will be very enriching.


Hi, I am Beverli. I have been a private teacher of Lindamood-Bell reading processes, I also work with people with Autism, and students who study English as a second language. Previously I was a set designer in the motion picture industry.

What Beverli is saying about this Meetup Group

I like it very much. I know very little Italian. I am working with Pimsleur at home. All the members are very willing to help you and to include you. It is a great opportunity to learn more about the language and to have fun. Lots of laughter.
