Buon Giorno, Y’all!

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 🙂
