I speak English with my little one, but only when it's just me and her, so far.
Where do you live in Parma? We may meet at the Biblioteca Internazionale Ilaria Alpi, have you ever been there?
I moved to Parma 6 years ago from Milan. My father is Italian and my mom American (from California, more precisely). I have two lovely boys aged 4 1/2 & 18 months and I'm trying to teach them English. The problem is they don't get any stimulus apart from me as they don't have, for instance, any English speaking friends to play with. I myself would love to have some new internationale open-minded friend! For this reason I would like to found an English speaking moms club/kids clubs. This could be a good starting point, although I think it would be best if we could meet a few mother-tongue moms/kids coming from abroad or we would probably end speaking Italian to each other!
I've heard about the International library, always wanted to go but never really made it, so it would be great to meet there! Where is it exactly? What day & time do you suggest? For me any time is ok (consider that I pick up my eldest son from preschool at 4pm) , it would be better to meet next week (I'll be in Milan for a long week-end), any day except on Wednesday. Sounds good?
See you soon then!
