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

I learned my first Italian tongue twister last month! Trentatre Trentini entrarono a Trento.... :)

How did you learn about our group?

I just typed "Italian" in the search box. ;)

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

I've just started reading "The Monkey's Wrench" by Primo Levi and really want to read his other book "Survival in Auschwitz". (When I get a little more advanced maybe I'll try reading them in Italian too!) My favorite Italian movie is Il Postino, and I really like listening to Elisa. My favorite Italian food is probably tiramisu, and I don't have a favorite city but I hear Puglia is really beautiful.

At what level do you speak Italian and do you speak other languages?

First, I love learning languages! I speak French, some Spanish, and a little Japanese and Arabic. I've become good friends with some Italians here in DC and that has inspired me to try learning Italian too! I'm a beginner, but I'm finding that with my knowledge of French and Spanish it's pretty easy to pick up!

What kinds of events would you most enjoy?
