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

Film - "Roma citta` aperta" e` bellissimo. Book - Mi piace molto Dacia Maraini, specialmente "Colomba." Sono anche molto interessata nel modernismo e neorealismo (Calvino e Pirandello in particolare). Food - Tutto! Sono vegetariana adesso, ma c'e` un posto speciale nel mio cuore per il cibo in generale. City - Roma e` sempre la mia risposta a questa domanda, ma Venezia ed i paesi piccoli di Toscana sono incantevoli.

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

I recently discovered a tiny amount of Italian heritage in my bloodline, but it's miniscule and very distant. My interest in Italy was piqued after a high school trip my sophomore year. Ever since, I've been in love with the country. I decided to study Italian in college so I'd have a good reason to study abroad, which was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.

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

Ho preso otto semestri d'italiano all'universita`, quindi il mio livello e` avanzato, piu` o meno. Sono un po' fuori prattico recentemente perche` non ci sono tanti parlatori d'italiano in Oklahoma.

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

I want to speak Italian because it's beautiful and because the practice of a new language challenges me. I also want to take as many trips to the country as I can throughout my life.

Introduction

Mi chiamo Brigid. Sono nuova a Los Angeles, originalmente da Tulsa, Oklahoma. Ho studiato italiano (e ho ricevuto il mio minor nella lingua) a Scripps College, cominciando nel 2002. Ho passato un semestre a Milano. Sono felice di incontrare tutti!
