1 more year under my "cintura"

I’ve been going to my Italian class for the last year, pretty much without fail. I can’t say this is getting me that much closer to speaking Italian with any fluency, but it is getting me more and more comfortable babbling in broken Italian. It is a good brain exercise, whatever else it is. Perhaps if I actually studied grammar (or vocabulary) I’d be making more progress. For now, I’ll just brag about my persistence.



Total struggle

I’m still slogging away at Italian, but this week I almost gave up. I never make the time to do my homework and then I spend most of the lesson telling stupid stories in the present tense (and often in the wrong person). Beh!



Back at it

I returned to taking lessons in Italian two weeks ago after an almost six year pause. It is a challenge getting my homework done and a it hurts my brain to speak Italian for a full hour, but all and all it is a pretty satisfying endeavor. My desire was really just to get some mental exercise and not lose to much ground on the year or so I have put into learning Italian. Not sweating fluency or a planned trip to Italy and just focusing on the enjoyable parts of learning a language make this a pleasant experience.
