There's a beginners course in Italian starting next week, and I'm thinking about doing it. I've always wanted to learn another language.
I also found this duolingo-app that pretty much works the same way Rosetta Stone does. Only it doesn't cost a million dollars... Rosetta is ridiculously expensive. I would be willing to buckle down and do the work at home. But a course might be a bit more motivational. I'm trying to get my mother to go with me, I think she would enjoy it a lot. We are going to Italy together. We went together last time, and we'll probably go together the next time.
I enjoyed being able to order my ice cream in Italian at the end of my week in Venice. That didn't take long to learn. The people who worked at the gelato stores did not speak much English (if any), so my crappy Italian and their crappy English got me the gelato I wanted without too much sign language. I'd like my crappy Italian to be less crappy. That is, it will be crappy for a long time, but less crappy would be nice.
I can do this!
