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

I would love to live in Italy for a portion of the year and speaking good Italian would be a plus.

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

I am Italian by choice not by heritage. My family comes from Germany and Switzerland although I am a native Californian. Sono italiano in mia cuore !!

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

I speak advanced beginning....I've taken Italian I or II classes for a couple of years and only get to use it when I travel. I'm getting better but need to build my confidence in speaking off the top of my head.

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

Film: Bread and Tulips Book: City of Angels Food: Pasta con Quattro Formaggio Music: Vasco Rossi City: Florence, Monte St. Angelo, Como Vacation: Anywhere in Italy


Ciao ! I have traveled to Italy many times. I love the country and the people. I'm excited about having a new place to speak Italian and to meet new friends. We have lots of fun events planned for 2011 !
