Do you speak Italian?

I speak lots of Italian, but am not good at the grammar. When I am in Italy people tell me that I speak it so well. I always tell them that I speak lots of Italian but I don't speak it very well. I have studied from books, tapes, cd but mostly learned it in the streets with a language book in my hand. When I travel to Italy I always have a box of vocabulary cards with me.They are great conversation starters. The people are so helpful when I ask them how to pronounce something in Italian.

Have you ever lived in Italy?

Stationed in Italy during my Navy days. Lived in Gaeta and Sperlonga from late 1970 till Jan 75. After raising a family I started going back to Italy in 2002. I have spent a month there in 02 traveling with my then 15 year old daughter, a month in Florence in 04, month in Rome in 05, month in Pescara in 09, and month in Sicily in 10. Can't wait to get back.

Why do you want you join this group?

I just want to get together and talk Italian and learn more of the language.
