I absolutely agree I guess we just got a little carried away.

Ciao Alessandra!

A little of another language doesn't hurt! Those of us who don't understand can always babel fish if we feel that left out, LOL. Personally Its great for me....I am trying to learn Italian, because I am off to Milano in a week! Yippee!

I have one of those languae tapes, but keep forgetting where I have got up to and starting at the beginning again...so right now I am really good at hellos and good byes but not much else! LOL

Welcome, it is very friendly and warm here

No....my husband (there's always a man at the root of it eh!) is working in Milano for a year, he is half Italian (from Florence) and the opportunity was there and probably won't be in the future......so.....

In fact the person who has been great is RDG here....he met with Michael and showed him around and has answered endless questions....he has been wonderful. and I have to say the people for whom my husband is working are great too. They are putting us up in a great apartment for August while we look for something.

I am going out next week to help on the not so successful apartent search but I am not moving out properly until late september...my mother has an operation and I have to arrange transport for our cats and storage for our furniture and letting our flat and.....so much!

Although I understand Italian quite well....my in laws speak Italian at home, I don't yet speak it well....just when I think I have got it I realise that I have replied in Spanish! So my first mission is to get on a language course

WOW That is a great opportunity. You are going to love it! While you are there, travel as much as possible. Italy is very small and Venezia, Firenze, Torino, Genova, Siena, Pisa the coast of tuscany...even Rome can be reached over a weekend. You will LOVE the food :)...Actually there is now the University (or Accademy) of Taste I think in Piemonte...Check out my parents' website www.pm-news.net , you can find info, recipes and curiosities about the region of Piemonte which is only 1 hour drive from Milano.
