    Today I visited the language school, I decided to enroll in a full immersion course in English!
    Monday I will make a level test.
    I'm very happy, it's important for me to speak well and to better understand this language.

    Good for you.:clap: I love living part of the time in another language. Soon you will know that some of us don't always use the best grammar or spelling.

    And once you have finished your course, you'll understand that MrB is talking "garbage".

    I think it only fair that we all learn a bit of Italian to sorta even things out a bit. Egoista
    I think you'll find English confusing...a lot of slang and colloquial terms used in different
    areas of the U.S. plus words that sounds alike but mean different things, etc. However,
    both Italian and English are Latin based languages and that's an advantage. Enjoy
    your lessons and practice on us any time you choose. We might even understand our
    own language occasionally.

    Thanks all.
    Abaxter says the true! But this forum is very interesting for this.
    Garbage language can be interesting too, of course :D
    Now I'de study English not American English, I know there are differences, but first I need to refine the English pure, then we will be able to deepen the slangs with teachers. In my orchids association there is a girl from New York, I think she can help me a little.
    For us Northern Italians is easier to understand and speak the French language because our regional dialect has many similarities and similar phonetic accents. Usually the Italians of the center and south are more apt to English and not French. French is grammatically very difficult and there are lots of verbs to be studied, I never liked it execpt for some poems.

    My interest is mainly personal, I hope to learn well and quickly, and not having a fluent English penalize me very professionally also.

    I have 2 problems: 1 I don't think in Inglish but in Italian and this is not good.
    2 I have a terrible speaking

    Hopefully your immersion program will help with both of your "problems." Good luck! I studied Russian for 7 years, and I never got to the point where I thought in Russian, though.
