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

Italian music I own is Laura Pausini, Nek, Zucchero, Eros Ramazzoti... Tiziano Ferro, Georgia... I feel there is so much more Italian music that I have not been exposed to that I would love, I just don't know how to find out what it is...

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

My paternal grandfather was Italian, so I feel lucky I inherited his Italian name. While that makes me only one quarter Italian, I've always felt close to the culture, as my dad shared with me his love for the food, the language and the music.

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

I'd say I am at the beginner/intermediate level. I understand a great deal more than I can speak. It's just been so long since I've been able to practice, I really don't know what level to call myself!

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

My dad is pretty fluent, it would be incredible to hold lengthy conversations with him. Also, I do hope to visit Italy one day. My goal is to be completely fluent. To be closer to rich heritage. It would be such a shame not to!

Introduction

It's been my dream to become fluent in Italian. The music, the food, the people, I can't wait to meet everyone!
