Buona sera Mark!

Benvenuto da parte mia - welcome from me, an expression I learned from this forum just the other day :-) There are a good few of us here in England.

Everyone is so very helpful and friendly, it's a great place to learn. Everyone here knows how easy it is to mangle the language and just eases you back on track so it doesn't matter in the slightest if you make a total mess of it.

Imparo italiano da circa sei mesi, e ho trovato questo "forum" alcune settimane fa. - I'm trying to say "I've been learning Italian for around six months and I found this forum several weeks ago". Take care not to pay too much attention to my attempts at Italian as I'm only just starting out too so it may not be accurate :-)

Are you learning by yourself or going to a course?

Once again, Welcome!

Please feel free to correct any rubbish

Ciao Mark, good luck with the language, after all it's not too hard if you are motivated. Are you of Italian descent?

But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends
It gives a lovely light.

Ciao Mark and welcome to Impariamo. As you can see I'm another of the English fraternity here.

I agree entirely with what Jason said. Never be afraid to ask questions, even if you think they are silly - for want of a better word. All we non-Italians have been where you are now, so we do appreciate how it can be for you. But hang on in there, Mark - find an evening class that you could attend. The interaction between the class members and with the teacher - if he or she is a good one - will be of great benefit to you.

Good luck (or as the Italians would say, in bocca al lupo)
