Parliamo Italiano nights.It turns out 2020 is yet another chance to learn and practice your Italian language skills is coming. Through offering formal classes for a few years, we got a lot of positive feedback. Some of the feedback asked for more opportunities for just conversation. We listened, had a very successful session in the fall of 2019, and will continue into 2020.
Starting on Thursday, January 9, 2020, we will be hosting Parliamo Italiano nights every 2 weeks for 8 sessions. This will be a chance for anyone, members and non members, to come to the Lounge at the Dante Club for an hour or so, and just converse in Italian. We will have native Italian speakers there to help us out, topics pre-selected to help guide the conversation. We have also paired up with Duolingo, the free language learning site, to offer these sessions.The evenings are ABSOLUTELY FREE to everyone and the bar will be open for purchase of drinks.The dates and subjects are as follows:
