The back room at Lab 16, an eatery in the university quarter, was packed with students who wanted to practice their English conversation with our group from America. We expected 30…more than 60 people came! Daryl was trying to get out the door for a breath of fresh air and kept running into new Italians who said, “Where are the Americans? We came to talk to them.”
We connected our new friends with the 7-person team of Americans who live in Bologna and work with Agape Italia year-round. They are scheduling one-on-one conversations with the University of Bologna students through their Facebook page. As you can see, it is already up to nearly 1000 “likes”!
