Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

The (poor) state of my Italian
Quick catch up post about one of my little obsessions. I tried to speak Italian today with a colleague. I can understand what she says (I knew this already), but I struggle to answer in the language. Not only to construct full sentences, but I hesitate to say words and thus I thing both my accent (accent which I am very proud of usually) and pronunciation suffer. I am learning Italian way too sporadically. I have been through the first six lessons of Assimil, I remember the words when I read or hear them, however I want to be able to speak Italian without the safety belt. So it means revising all the lessons I have been through, and trying to listen to take a few lessons every evening. I want to keep my brain active, and to develop my linguistic skills. W
