To become fluent enough to communicate with my Italian relatives.
I am half Italian on my mother's side. She was born and raised and didn't speak a word of English when she came to America.
I spoke a little as a kid, but unfortunately, we spoke mostly English in our home in order to help teach my mother English. I have since lost my ability to speak Italian for the most part, only understanding a few words here and there.
Too many films to list! Cinema Paradiso, il Postino, Johnny Stecchino, il Divo, Malèna, L'ultimo Bacio and many more.
To immerse myself with Italian speakers.
