Ciao tutti! Mi chiamo Jenne.

I was on the forum before it changed, but I don't get to post much. I am now a graduate student studying library science and working two jobs. I'm married with two kids. Normally, I would try to post in Italian, but I'm stealing time from studying and don't have time to translate right now. I thought I would say hi anyway.

I have a new favorite phrase in Italian: Hai scoperto l'America! It makes me laugh every time I see it.

Ciao Jenne! Parlaci un po' di te, io sono nuovo e non ti conosco. Where are you from?

Vedo che questa è una specie di seconda era del forum...come Zion :shock:

I am learning English every day, so could you help me by correcting (In private, if you want) anything I have written incorrectly.

Claudietto - per spiegare meglio.....ho avuto problemi tecnici con questo forum in settembre l'anno scorso, ed abbiamo perso tutti i dati dei nostri iscritti. Tutti dovevano ri-iscriversi quando sono riuscita a rilanciare il sito. Jenne era una degli iscritti originali! 8)

Ciao Claudietto! Abito in Missouri, ma ho abitato in Italia per sei anni. Era nove anni fa. Non posso parlare italiano con nessuno allora. Cosi', devo studiare solo con il computer e le cassette. Mio figlio e nato in Italia.

Il mio italiano e molto male. Devo esercitarsi, ma non ho tempo. Che peccato!

Ciao Mindy! Sono contenta questo forum e qui! Grazie!

Ciao Nicole ma una domanda: che cosa hai studiato alla universita'?

Hai scritto della tua specializzazione: [Mi stavo specializzando nella musica classica all'universita'] e dopo hai scritto [ho deciso di specializzarmi in italiano]. Ti hai laureato in "lingua italiana"?

Benvenuta al forum.

A presto,

Angel

Different Dialects

Post by Diana DeLash »

Hello, I'm Diana DeLash. I have family in Grumento Nova, Potenza, Basilicata and I have been in contact with them the last three years. Although my Italian is improving, I still have problems because of dialect. There is also different levels of education. If I can hear from those who are familiar with this area, it would be wonderful! Diana

Hi Diana, and welcome to the forum! :D I am not familiar with the area where your family lives, but I can certainly relate to problems with local dialects. The Venetian dialect is killer! I can understand it most of the time, but cannot speak it at all except for a few words and phrases.

Have you ever been to Italy to visit your family? Are you taking Italian lessons?

A presto!

Ciao! Mi chiamo Joann (or Giovanna- my Italian alter ego)

I found this site from the slowtrav.com website. I went to Italy in 1998 and 2003 and absolutely loved it. My husband's family is from Calabria and my maternal grandmother's family came from Sicily. I'm still working on finding my relatives. My mom and I are taking Italian lessons from Curzio Caravati in Kenosha, WI http://www.wisitalia.org. We have so much fun in his class. I am also listening to Pimsleur in my car. I love this site - it's fun trying to figure out what everyone is writing in Italian. Hope to visit Italy again soon -

A presto?

Joann

Dialects

Post by Diana DeLash »

Hi Mindy and everybody, Thank you for your reply. I've been to Italy to meet my family. I keep telling them I am returning again soon but it hasn't worked out yet. I'm studying Italian with great websites like this one and I also have an Italian tv station I receive with satellite. Sometimes I feel I am learning on thing but my family speaks another way! I am also able to email one of my cousins. It's great to be able to stay in touch. Diana

Ciao Giovanna!

Benevenuti al questo forum! Sono molto contenta di averti qui. Da quanto tempo studi la lingua? Di dove sono in Sicilia la tua famiglia? I nonni di mia madre vivevano a Palermo. I nonni di mio padre vivevano in Abruzzo, a Tollo essatamente.

Non vedo l'ora a parlati piu!

Amy
