The Chicago Italian Language Meetup Group Pages

About the group:
The Chicago Italian Language Meetup Group consists of a diverse and friendly group of people who come together monthly to converse in the Italian language. Speaking entirely in Italian is very much encouraged. Most of the people speak at an intermediate or an advanced level. However, there are some native speakers as well as some beginners.
*If you are someone who just wants to learn some Italian phrases before your trip to Italy, this is probably not the best group for you. :)

The format for the meetings is open, which means you are free to roam around and speak to whomever you wish about any topic you wish. The more members that you interact with the more you will get to practice speaking in Italian. Some members are more comfortable listening to conversations, while others are more interested in actively participating in a conversation. Please do what makes you feel comfortable.

Meetings are typically held once a month on a Monday evening from 8:00pm until the last person leaves; however, we will occasionally (but infrequently) have meetings or events on other days. The monthly Monday meetings are usually held at Black Rock Bar located near the intersection of Addison and Damen. The bar is near the Brown line, Damen or Addison bus line, or you can find street parking relatively close to the bar.

The Italian Language Meetup group is fortunate to have two sponsors: Select Italy and Sentieri Italiani. If you look to your left under "Our Sponsors", you can click on either sponsors’ logos to learn more about them.

Message board:
The message board is a very good way (but underused by most members) of finding out about events that are happening outside of our normal meeting day. However, if it is an actual group sponsored event, an event notice will be sent to you via email. Please do not post advertisement for services without prior permission from the group organizer. Please do not attempt to form your own monthly Italian language group through the message board.
