Italian Conversation, Fishponds
What For people with some Italian who'd like to improve their ability through conversation, in a friendly and welcoming group.
When Alternate Wednesday afternoons.
Where At the convener's home in Fishponds.
The group will be for speakers of Italian who are past Beginners level. I am not a teacher, I am a speaker of Italian who often does not speak it to a high grammatical level! I believe the most important thing is to be able to communicate. Italians are very forgiving towards those who make mistakes and are thrilled to hear foreigners making an effort. They will often gently correct you.
So, there will be no formal grammar taught and no preparation of topics to read out to the group. We may use role play. The conversation should be spontaneous. We want to imagine ourselves sitting around a table, with good food and wine, having great conversation about any topic. Very much just as the Italians do.
We will help each other to find out words we don't know and hopefully, the correct grammar. We need to put fun into learning and using what is a beautiful language.
