I have a subscription to audible.com and this month I downloaded Learn in Your Car: Italian 1. I have always wanted to go to Italy and Italian is so close to Spanish that I thought I would give it a shot. So I have been listening to it and I think that I will be able to do pretty well with it. I wrote down the phrases that are on the recording so I can memorize them and repeat them to myself. I find that the easiest way to learn a language is to be able to speak it and memorize the terms.

When I was a little girl I only spoke Spanish. One of my earliest memories was running around my grandmother's kitchen with a tomato asking her to put salt on it so that I could eat it. (Ugh I can't eat raw tomatoes anymore prob cause I ate so many when I was younger). My mother taught me English the year before I started kindergarten and I was put into an English speaking class. My mother also taught me to read at an early age so that I was already able to read when I started school. The sink or swim approach worked for me and I am hoping to take the same approach to learning Italian. Maybe next year I can take a trip to Rome or Venice. Wouldn't that be nice :)

Is this another one of your subtle hints?
