I just came upon this event when I signed up for a different event (board game night).
I love Italy and all things Italian! I think Italian is the most beautiful language in the world. I am also interested in Italian dialects and Italian cuisine. My father grew up in Savona, Liguria, and my mother's family is from Le Marche and Basilicata. I am originally from New York, and I have traveled to Italy many times. I lived in Le Marche for a year in 2002.
My major at Stony Brook University in New York was Italian, and I spoke it as well or better than most of my classmates. I also taught Italian at the middle school, high school and college levels. So, I would say that I am not quite a native speaker (especially since I don't get to practice it too often), but I speak it fluently.
Hi I'm Liz! I love to speak Italian!
