Italian

Italianissimo, the University of Michigan’s only Italian club, provides students the opportunity to learn more about Italian culture while practicing their speaking skills in a relaxed and enjoyable setting. Some of the events we host include weekly conversation hours, cooking demos, movie screenings, game nights, soccer tournaments, club outings to nearby cities and towns, and more! Italianissimo also organizes exam reviews for Italian 101 and 102 students. Suggestions for other events you’d like to see happen are more than welcome! The club aims to serve as a resource to students interested in any opportunity related to the Italian language and culture – whether it be academic or just out of personal curiosity – and also to serve as a liaison between students and the Italian department and faculty. We can help with homework, study abroad, or just generally point you in the right direction of where to find what you’re looking for.

Drop-in Conversation Hours take place at the Espresso Royale on State Street on Mondays and Thursdays from 7 - 8 pm. Conversation hours will generally focus on speaking practice, but club members will be present and willing to help students with homework tasks and any other Italian-language support they might need. All levels of proficiency are encouraged to come.

If you would like to be added to our mailing list to receive updates and info about our events, pop an email to the club’s leadership at italianissimoboard@umich.edu. You can also visit our Facebook page. And please feel free to email us with any questions. We hope to see you at our next event!
