Since moving to Italy, I’ve been trying really hard to learn Italian. I’ve been studying on my own but after a while, I just get so tired and BORED! For 6 months, we didn’t have a TV so, I couldn’t watch the news or any programs. I did, however, watch a lot of stuff on YouTube. Now that we finally have a TV, I can watch the news or cartoons… whichever I’m in the mood for. I love being able to watch something that I am familiar with to figure out if I know what they are saying.
It has helped a bit. I can understand a lot of what is being said but I still have a hard time. One thing that Carlo has teased me about is my “YouTube Make up lesson”. You see one day, I was on You Tube and I kept clicking on a lot of different videos. I came across one that I thought was kinda fun. It was a makeup tutorial in Italian. I sat there and watched it and I didn’t understand a single word. I watched some of the other videos and didn’t understand anything. So, the next day, I sat in front of my computer with a dictionary and kept trying to find these words that I didn’t know. Slowly, I started to understand a few words and started spending money… on Makeup! I love to wear makeup but was never really sure of how to wear certain things.
