Italianissimo, or the University of Michigan’s official Italian club, serves to offer students the opportunity to learn more about Italian culture while practicing their Italian speaking skills. Scheduled events include a soccer tournament, cooking competitions, weekly conversation hours, a street Italian seminar, gelato excursions, restaurant outings, movie screenings, and more to come. Suggestions are more than welcome!  All Italian 101, 102, 231, and 232 students must come to at least one conversation hour a semester; all events attended in addition to the one required are extra credit.

This year, Italianissimo will also be organizing Italian Faculty-approved study groups – similar to those hosted by the SLC.  The study groups are capped at 13-15 people and are an excellent opportunity to receive further instruction, practice your Italian outside of the classroom, and receive help on ripassi/compiti. As with other university-sponsored study groups, attendees are committing to participate for the entire semester.  The study groups will meet once a week for an hour on central campus. Currently, only one study group per class level is scheduled, but if demand is high enough, Italianissimo will increase the amount of offerings. Please see contact information below for any questions. 

Italianissimo meets for conversation hours every Monday and Thursday from 7:30-8:30 pm at the Espresso Royale on State Street.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email the club’s leadership at If you would like to get more information about the club, please visit our Facebook page. We hope to see you at our next event!

Drop-in conversation hours are held every week - all language levels are welcome! Students can chat with other Spanish speakers, practice for oral exams, or just keep up on their Spanish skills in a casual setting among peers. Convo hours are offered every Tuesday/Wednesday from 6PM-7PM in the basement of the Espresso Royale on South U. 

Drop-in peer tutoring is also offered throughout the semester for help with essays and working on grammar. Tutoring hours are held every Tuesday/Wednesday from 11AM-2PM in the Language Resource Center, located on the lower level of North Quad.
