In my last post I listed 'to make more of an effort with learning Italian' as one of my aims for 2011. Well, low and behold it was my teachers wish for me too. So, la promisa del Nuovo Anno e` imparare a parlare Italiano- I promise to learn to speak Italian in the New Year.
Last night was my first lesson since before Christmas. I had missed quite a few lessons in December, I hadn't realised quite how many until last night when I found the Christmas decorations I had been searching for in my bag. Proof that I had not picked up my books at all since November (possible October!).
I've been trying to learn Italian for about 18mths, although at times it has been very half hearted. But, no more! I will try and do just five minutes a day, and buy a lovely new notebook to practice in. There is also a groupon deal on at the moment for cheap language tutition online, I'm thinking a bit of intensive practice for a month or so might increase my confidence and therefore enjoyment? We shall see...
When I'm living the dream chomping on pizza and quaffing olive oil in my restored Italian farm house it will all be worth it.
