How did you hear about the NYC Italian Language, Food & Culture Club?

What kinds of events would you like our group to host?

No answer yet

What inspired you to learn Italian?

Languages are my avocation. Italian was relatively easy to learn because my mother tongue is Spanish. As an avid opera fan, my knowledge of Italian helps me to follow the libretti, albeit incompletely.

Do you have any expertise related to Italian language, food or culture that might be useful in planning our future events and activities?

I do not have any expertise in any area. However, I like Italian food. I wish to continue learning Italian. Trips to Italy are also in my agenda.

What level of Italian do you speak? 1. Beginner 2. Conversant 3. Advanced/Native

At this time I consider myself conversant or an advanced beginner. Many years ago I was able to think and dream in Italian after a trip to Milan. Alas, lack of practice dulled that ability.

Introduction

I adore Italian and I wish I were able to speak it fluently. I took it in college more than three decades ago and I have not been able to practice it much, except when I try to follow the opera at the Met. I am interested in becoming a member.
