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

I'd like to use Italian while on vacation in Italy. I hope to go sometime in 2008

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

I am second generation Italian-American (and Irish-American) with both my paternal grandparents born in Italy.

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

My vocabulary is decent, but I am not able to string together the words into anything more than simple sentences like "Ecco il mio passaporto." "Dove si trova l'hotel?". I have no opportunities to speak and just read Italian newspapers.

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

The Bicycle Thief, Pane e Tulipani, and Mediteranneo are great films. Love all Italian food

Introduction

Ciao. I've been trying to learn Italian on and off for over a decade with limited results. I could really use the practice in real life conversations.
