What is your favorite Italian film, book, food, music, city or vacation?

Film: La vita è bella Cities: Roma e Venezia Food: I can't narrow it down to one. ;-)

What is your interest or connection with the Italian language or culture? Are you of Italian heritage?

I think my paternal great, great grandmother was Italian. I felt very at home in Italy. The land, the people, and the language all felt very familiar. Italian music stirs my soul. I believe a percentage of the Latin blood that flows through my veins is indeed Italian.

What level of Italian do you speak? How do you use the language now?

I consider myself a beginner. I have taken basic courses, but without consistency nor practice I haven't been able to advance much. I watch Italian shows and listen to Italian music.

How do you hope to use the Italian language? Do you have a goal?

I would like to reach fluency. My dream is to live in Italy for a while to truly experience life there. I believe knowing the language of a country is the key that opens the door to truly appreciating the culture of that country.


Ciao! :-) I fell in love with Italy and its people when I traveled there years ago. I speak English, Spanish, a little German, and a little Italian. I'm glad I found your group, so I can practice and learn more. Looking forward to meeting you all!
