Italian Conversation, Downend
What it is: For people with a reasonable knowledge of Italian who'd like to improve their ability through conversation, in a friendly and welcoming group.
When it is: Fortnightly on Wednesdays at 2.00pm for 1½ hours.
Where it is: Cleeve Hill Tennis Club, 53-55 Cleeve Hill, Downend, Bristol, BS16 6EU.
We are a longstanding group, who would love to have some fresh blood! We have a range of ability and confidence, are far from fluent, and frequently help each other out with vocabulary and grammar.
We take it in turns to choose a topic for the session, which we then discuss in pairs, so that everyone gets a chance to contribute. The last half hour is usually a general discussion around the table either about the topic or about something else entirely. Often we deviate from the topic, which is not a problem - the important thing is that everyone builds up their confidence in conversing. Often we play a game or have a quiz.
If you have a reasonable knowledge of Italian, and would like to join the conversation, you will be made very welcome!
