Conversation, increasing my vocabulary, and honing in on proper grammar.
I consider myself to be an upper level beginner, but I may understand more than I give myself credit. I believe I'm lacking confidence. I've taken classes in high and college years ago, but I've recently been working with a tutor on Saturday afternoons. I'm hoping by opening my horizons and exposing myself to more situations where I can try to converse in Frech can only help my growth.
I've never lived in a French-speaking country. I do have interets in wine tasting, cookings, sports, and travel.
I live in the North Side of Pittsburgh. I'm flexible to travel most areas of the city.
My name is Ron Pontrelli. I'm not a native of Pittsburgh. I moved to Pittsburgh six years ago to attend Duquesne University's MBA program. I travel a lot and try to make it to France every year.
