How did you hear about the group?

Searching on Google for Italian lessons.

What, for you, would make a great meetup?

A bunch of friendly people and the opportunity to converse in Italian (my greatest weakness). Hopefully also some Italians wanting to improve their English.

What nationality are you and how would you best describe your level of Italian? (i.e. beginner, intermediate, fairly advanced, native etc)

Born in England. Mother English. Father Italian. Intermediate? Regret I never learnt Italian as a kid despite many long summers at grandparents' farm in San Giovanni near Pordenone, north Italy. I get very nervous about trying to talk to people in Italian and make lots of mistakes. I listen to conversations but by the time I've thought of something to say in Italian it's moved on so I say nothing. I only started attending the meetups in February 2011. I was too scared to go before. However, since plucking up the courage I have met lots of lovely people, some of who I would hope to be able to call friends.


Sono inglese ma mio padre era italiano di San Giovanni un piccolo villaggio vicino Pordenone, Friuli Giulia. Studio l'italiano alcuni anni. Mi piace la sfida e amo la lingua.
