What's your New Year's resolution?  One, I've "often" considered and as yet, have not pursued - is learning another language.  How about you?  In our new world of globalization, this could come in really handy.  A fun way to try another language at a minimum of expense and of your time may be attending one of the following organizations.  Want to learn Italian?  All levels of ability, or lack thereof, are invited to meet with I Ciceroni Italian Conversation Group. Meetings are the first Wednesday of the month at 7pm at Panera Bread, 7349 Lake in River Forest.  Maybe Spanish is your choice.  One local group meets at 12:30pm every Thursday at the Oak Park Arms, 408 S. Oak Park Avenue.  All levels invited.  How about French?  The Oak Park French Club does have a membership fee and meets every Tuesday at 7:15pm Good Shepherd Church, 611 Randolph.  Seems like each of these clubs offers a great way to learn something new.
