Yesterday was the second and one of the best Tandem meetings. The meeting, organized along with eGeneration, a local organization that works with university students, took place in the 100Dieci cafe of the University of Perugia. The live jazz band in the background didn’t drown out the buzz of lively conversation between Umbra students and their Italian companions. The aperitivo was offered by Umbra and eGeneration.
The Tandem program is a series of encounters that aims to bring American and Italian students together, not only for linguistic exchange, but also to help Umbra students integrate into the Perugian community. The meetings will be held every week for the rest of the semester.
