Welcome to my brand new blog. As 2016 is approaching, I finally took some time to think about my resolutions for the next year. On top my list I put: start a blog and update it. So here we go, I am going to blog about Italian as a foreign language. I will regularly post about Italian vocabulary, idioms, small talks, and why not, fast grammar.
My posts will be short, no-time consuming and effective. I will call them ‘pills’, because I like the idea that by ‘taking an Italian pill’ every now and then you will learn something new each time.
Any student of Italian who comes across my blog, may feel free to reach out to me through the comments at the bottom of the posts, and I will be felice* to respond!
*felice is the Italian adjective for happy.
