I dated a boy from a small city outside Bologna for 6 years. When I met him he had never been to America and spoke no English. No one in his city or family spoke English, so I learned Italian. Now years later I do not want to forget how to speak.
I speak at about an intermediate level. I know a lot of slang. Because I mostly spoke with my boyfriend and he knew what I was trying to say and never corrected me, I make a lot of mistakes and use verbs in the infinite tense. I get nervous speaking with people I don't know in Italian, embarrassed to make mistakes. I hope to get over this.
I hope to get better at speaking and hopefully writing in Italian.
