Do you know the age old adage of “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks?”, well I think that may be pretty accurate, lol; because learning a new language when younger soaks in so much easier. Since fully immersing myself in the Italian culture, I have had to relearn that patience is a virtue, especially when it comes to picking up a new language, as it doesn’t just happen overnight.
Growing up bi-lingual has been an extreme blessing for me. Not only has it helped me better communicate with my parents and family, but has also opened many doors for job opportunities as well throughout my life. If you are familiar with Italian and/or the Spanish language, you may know that they are very similar. They are, after all, both part of the 5 romance languages and of course they are…what’s more romantic than the sweet sound of the Italian language?
