“In my time, you needed to speak a little Italian, and that was it.” -Juan Manuel Fangio
My second Italian lesson and I am still enjoying it, even though it is getting a bit more difficult. This week’s lesson introduced some simple sentences such as, “Do you speak English?” “Do you understand Italian?” and the use of negatives in a sentence.
The program that I am using is not book based, but rather teaches by listening to the language and repeating the phrases and words. Even though 30 minutes a day is recommended, I have only been doing 15 minutes a day of review and find that so far, that seems to be sufficient. I have no intention of being a master in the language, but I would like to be able to hold my own without looking too ridiculous when speaking.
Hoping to take this soon to be developed skill to Italy one day…. For today, I am left wondering what tomorrow will bring… Arrivederci!
