Thank you for your interest in joining the “Newcastle upon Tyne Italian Language Meetup.” Our group has been meeting regularly since July 2016.
We are an amazing group of Italian language enthusiasts of all ages and abilities who meet once or twice a week to participate in a wide range of events from gallery visits, to Italian lunches, dinners and general coffee & chats. It is an ideal group for those studying alone - Duolingo, Coffee Break Italian etc - who want to practise speaking & listening and for anyone who has lived in Italy and would like to keep up their Italian going. Joining is free initially. However, there are - as with all Meet up groups - particular joining requirements.
Our Italian Meetup requires the following:
· · A recognisable photo. This is so event organisers know who to look for at Meetups.
· · A short profile about why you would like to be in this group in English or in Italian. This helps with planning appropriate events.
· A contribution of £6 cash within one week from those who wish to participate in the future. This is because Meetup charges an administration fee that has to be paid by the organiser. Your £6 lasts a year and helps to ensure the group’s existence. If you want to stay on the list, you can pay at the first meeting in cash. Otherwise, you will need to use the red button on the left of the Members' page, using your debit or credit card. NB. This does not require a Paypal account as it offers the option of checking out as "a guest." This costs £6.60 to cover fees levied by Paypal.
You are given one week's trial membership in order to allow you to see past & future events.
Your £6 contribution represents 12 minutes in private tuition terms (at £10 to £30 an hour) but gives more than a year of opportunities to practise your Italian! All suggests are welcome for outings or topics for discussion and we will do whatever we can to help you speak Italian confidently.
In line with the founder's original vision of Meetup building community, we aim to provide a warm welcome - the only difference is that we share a bit of our lives and our knowledge using the Italian language!
We hope that those of you who join will enjoy your time with us.
(Auguri e buon divertimento a tutti i participianti di questo gruppo!)
