    My Journey with Languages, in 2019

    This post was written before: published & then deleted… Let’s try again! I started learning languages while I was in an English-speaking Welsh secondary school (USA: high school). There are two types of schools in Wales, one that teaches in Welsh, or in English. They are both very well established but it depends on the student & parent whether they want their child to speak Welsh well/fluently at home.

    Introduction to ITALIAN FRIDAYS

    Hello All, This is the first post to do with Italy. I first encountered the country Italy while researching about the Roman Era as a child. As I was watching a few documentaries based on the Roman era and glancing through books created by Mary Beard when I saw a program about Italian food and culture called “Italy Unpacked”.

I am going to do a series of posts for everyone. I want to take both you, as…
