Conversation Groups

Want to improve your spoken Italian, but don't know where to start? Sei nel posto giusto!

Our Italian Conversation Groups are a great way to practice speaking Italian with others and to improve your knowledge of the language. Friendly and helpful moderators, who are native Italian speakers, guide the discussion. They offer fun facts to stimulate your growth as a language learner and expand your knowledge of Italian culture. Topics range from history, literature, music and art to news, food, cinema and travel. 

These small gatherings of 6-8 people allow everybody multiple opportunities to practice their Italian. We offer both a Beginner Conversation Group and an Intermediate/Advanced Conversation Group, open to members and non-members.

How much does it cost?

The price is $15 for members of Il Punto and $20 for non-members.  If you are not already a member join now to take advantage of the reduced rate and other benefits!

When and where?

In person - We received extensive feedback from our members that they would like conversation classes to return in-person. Il Punto is working to secure a location in the Seattle area for this to happen. 

Online - we will evaluate the offer of online classes based on the type of class and the number of attendees. For Sep to Dec session, we will be offering a mix of online and in-person.


If you are unable to attend a Conversation Group for which you have signed up, please contact us as soon as possible at If we are able to fill your spot from our waiting list, we will issue a credit which can be used for future Il Punto conversation group registrations.

What Participants are Saying ...

“Il Punto conversation groups—whether online or dal vivo—are an invaluable resource for Italian language learners. The facilitators do a fabulous job of creating entertaining and useful language learning experiences tailored to the participants’ levels. They simultaneously support and challenge the learners in an atmosphere that is warm, engaging and low stress. I truly appreciate the effort Il Punto has made to provide such a wonderful learning opportunity and I highly recommend them to curious lovers of the Italian language, from beginners to more advanced.” - Laura Jensen

“I have been attending the conversation groups with Il Punto for a few years. I have to admit, I get a little nervous before each meeting. I worry about my skills and wonder if I will be at the same level as the others. However, each and every meeting I leave feeling energized, with a new sense of confidence in my language skills. The leaders are all so warm and welcoming, they help instill a sense of fun and make it easy to converse. They are all encouraging and supportive. The new Zoom format works well for these gatherings and I appreciate that they are continuing.” - Anne Zannata Kline
