For such a popular expat destination, Milan’s language exchange scene is surprisingly barren. There are, of course, the sites that offer online language exchange with people all over the world on a one-on-one basis. However, bigger conversation groups that would offer the chance to meet socially for conversation practice, are a much rarer sight.
In addition to the Italian English language exchange group we already covered, Club Tutti Expats International of Milano would be the other option for an organised language exchange event.
As was the case with the Milan Italian English Language Exchange, the Club Tutti group is also a part of a bigger network connecting internationals living in or visiting Milan. The Club itself got started in 2003, in Florida but has now spread to other cities in Australia, Europe, and the US.
In Milan, they organise language exchange events that welcome all speaking levels of Italian and English. This group does not organise any recurring events but they usually have one or two upcoming events a month. Surprisingly enough, these are often also organised by Franglish. This can be because the group itself is rather passive with organising events and the meetings put together by Franglish offer a simple way to offer its members some high quality conversation practice in English or Italian.
Where and When?
Since a lot of the events that get added to this group are actually arranged by Franglish, the best way to find out where and when the next ones are taking place would be to check one of these pages:
The best option would be to keep an eye on the group’s event calendar since that provides the best overview of the events they recommend.
