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

Someone's facebook page.

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

Basically, I feel like the final episode of the Sopranos where they go to the American place instead of making something Italian at home -- I'm slipping from my Italian roots and want to get a piece of them back. So whatever can give me a glimpse.

What inspired you to learn Italian?

Growing up in an Italian family and listening to my relatives speak their half-Italian, half-English stuff. I remember my HS Italian teacher telling us not to say "icea box." Heh. La lingua e bella e quando sento pensare di famiglia.

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

For me, the culture and food is what came from home -- just the environment where you were laughing when your mouth wasn't full. I unfortunately haven't been to Italy, but would love to talk about what I'm missing. Also like some old Italian films.

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

Beginner.

Introduction

Voglio parlo Italiano piu e non tiene molto persone per parlare. Non parlo molto -- o troppo buono -- ma voglio imparare. (Yeah, that needs work.)
