What else would you like to tell our group about yourself?

My native language is Spanish, and I also studied French for 5 years, and took a semester of Italian at Casa Italiana a few years back, so I do have some basic knowlede of Italian, and can understand it somewhat well since it's so similar to the other two languages. I also visited Italy in 2008, and was amazed at how easily I was able to communicate with the native Italians. But again, I think this is due to its similarity with Spanish.

How did you learn about our group?

Just through browsing on this site.

What is your favorite Italian book, author, film, song, musician, food and/or city?

My favorite Italian movie is "Life is beautiful" with Roberto Benigni! Great Movie! My favorite Italian singer is Eroz Ramazotti. As for Italian cities, I loved all the main ones that I visited, but Florence and Rome were top notch. I LOVE ALL Italian Food!
