The real, live fantasy they call Venezia. The beautiful beaches of Sardegna. The wonderful Sorrento coast. Of course, the Neapolitan songs that my father used to sing: 'O Sole Mio, Maria Mari' (Oje Marie), Funiculi Funicula, Torna a Surriento...
Beginning to intermediate... but I love helping beginners, being around native speakers, and plan to continue my studies. On the other hand, my Neapolitan is not as good! But I understand quite a bit...
My parents are both from small towns near Napoli. I have traveled there and met my relatives. An unbelievable experience!
I hope to become fluent enough to more easily speak with relatives and friends in Italy. After that, I want to study Neapolitan (quite an unusual goal, I have gathered) to see the look on their faces when I amaze my southern Italian family!
Ciao a tutti! Sono il vostro cappogruppo. I am your group organizer. I will do my best to serve the group and keep things fun. This is a challenge, but your enthusiasm makes it a pleasure!
