I just sat down and looked through all 730 clubs in my area, from archery to vampires! Neither of which interests me, by the way. :o)
People who speak Italian - doh, I know that's obvious, but I've been to things where they lapse into English pretty quickly! A good mix of men and women. People who aren't afraid to correct mistakes: Babel Fish translations are fun but dangerous...
I'm British & my Italian is intermediate - enthusiastic & flowery with lots of mistakes! Speaking in a foreign language is good for bringing out your true character - you say what you want without a big vocabulary to beat about the bush with!
Parlare ed ascoltare italiano mi pare incantevole - la prima volta, mi pareva come capire gli uccelli cantante! Mi piace cantare, leggere, scrivere e ballare. Mi piace molto ballare il tango - una cosa un piccolo come l'apprendimento della lingua!
For the lively, international atmosphere and the sense of fun! As well as the pleasure of speaking Italian, of course! Also for the friendliness and the range of interesting people. There is a very good range of activities and while you're having a good time, you do find that your grasp of the language improves, too!
