Who'da thunk it?
Hang on to your hats folks. Here's a startling revelation for you:
Learning a foreign language is actually pretty hard.
You're stunned, I know. Try to recover because I'm moving along.
Last week was my very first Italiano 1.1 class. It was so fun what with all the counting and alphabet-reciting and introducing ourselves. Mi chiamo Heather! I have uno sposato and due gatti. I enjoy vino rosso, caffe latte and long walks on the spiaggia. I'm almost trente anni and I'm molto molto excited to be here! Everything is bellisima! How do you say "puppy dogs" and "ice cream" and "rainbows" in Italiano?!?
This week was my second Italiano 1.1 class. Holy verbs and adjectives. Maschile/Femminile. Formale/Informale. Plurale/Singolare. Does it end in an e? An a? An i? An o? Who the hell knows?
How do you say "Oh Sweet Lord Jesus please help me with my memorization skills lest I may perish at my very desk" in Italiano? Mio Dio.
