So, I started taking Italian lessons tonight 🙂 I was glad to learn that I am an excellent speaker. I pronounced everything perfectly. Unfortunately, I had very little clue as to what I was saying!
The teacher is awesome. She’s a mother of 4 grown children, she was born and raised in Italy, but she speaks fluent English, having moved here many years ago. She is patient, and she was quick to compliment. I did have to order a couple of books – an Italian/English dictionary, and a book about Italian verbs, but I’m excited and hope by the time we travel again to Italy, I can communicate better 🙂
