"Mi chiamo Katherina...



"La Practica fa la Grammatica"
(practice makes perfect grammar...we'll see about that!)
Real Life/Still Life


Well this is happening.  Italian class.  The first hour?  I was excited. The second hour?  Mama Mia,  I realized I could have been home watching "The Voice"!  "So, did ya have fun?" the Better Half inquired when I walked in the door.  Wellll, let's just say that conjugating verbs in Italian is about as much fun as it sounds like it would be. But I shall prevail.  Because as Mario Batali says "Spaghetti is love." Which really has nothing at all to do with learning Italian but...it reminds me that I'm hungry. Ciao.






Here's where I "link up" today

  1. I have a few key Japanese words phonetically prompted on my iWatch for daily practice: 10 am: "repeat sue-me-mah-sin" - which means 'excuse me', something Allyson tells me I will be using often. Cheeky girl!

    Good luck and kudos - I am convinced that you learn 2nd languages better either early on or in your semi-later years. I had very little use or interest in French when I was a freshman in high school - now I wish I would have paid more attention (especially since we're going to Europe next Spring).

  5. Love the B & W shoot. And as far as learning Italian goes as long as I know how to order their marvelous dishes - I'm OK.

  6. I'm proud of you! As a former second language learner I will say that after 6 months you will feel empowered! It's a great feeling. And if you get to take those skills to the friendly skies, even better!

  9. The schedule for Arabic classes came out last week. I know I need to sign up, but I am just so intimidated after my failure with Deutsch. Good, good luck!

  10. Spaghetti AND red wine is love. And Italiens will love you with or without speaking a grammatical correct Italian. After living for so many years in a French speaking country I just gave up...smile ,be happy and red wine is always good for your health and spirit!
