Ciao Sakura e benvenuta

Sure you're doing it right, otherwise we would not be able to read your messages!!! :) :) :)

So, you are new to the Italian language. Well, feel free to ask any questions, no matter how silly they may seem. never forget that all we stranieri have been where you are now - we all had to start from the beginning.

Also, have a good read of the Lezioni Gratuite section. You should learn quite a bit there.

Have fun :) :)

Sure Margriet, I will help you with english.
Great!
When is the best time to go to this forum?
Now I will study my italian more so that I can reply in Italian.
I use CDs while driving to work and a workbook for grammar. Visited Italy last summer for the second time and was able to speak basics enough to impress my daughter :lol:
Also visited Holland, beautiful!!!!!!

Buongiorno Sakura :)

There is no particular "best time" to log in, the forum has been rather quiet recently but you can see if there is anyone here by checking "Who's online".
You can leave a question at any time in any of the sections of the forum and someone will answer it..sometimes you may have to be a little patient though!

Glad to have you with us. :)

Hello Sakura:

Welcome, my name is Richard and I am pretty new to this forum also. Since July 08. You will find this place very enjoyable and the people extremely helpful. Hey, it's wonderful to find someone from the same time zone. Quite often when I get to go on line, everybody on the other side of the Atlantic is in bed already. Allora, ancora una volta ... benvenuta. Ha un Thanksgiving molto buono. Io e mia moglie andiamo in South Carolina il giorno dopo Thanksgiving, e ci restiamo fino a sie di dicembre. Piacere.

Rich

Greetings!
Hi Rich
Thank you for your email. Yes, it is hard to know when the people from the other side of the Atlantic are awake. We are staying home for Thanksgiving and I am cooking Italian- chicken parmigiana. :roll:
Tired of the turkey dinner. I have always like the italian language but now I am serious about learning it. I understand it when I hear it but cannot write it yet. While driving to work I listen to italian lessons and that helps too. I speak some and I have a friend in Italy that writes to me in Italian.
Well, nice to meet you. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
Ciao
Sakura

Hello!
I write a little italian and for that reason I will write in English today. :lol:
In reference of the Chicken Parmigiana, it is an American/ Italian influence recipe that may or may not exist in Italia. It is served over spaghetti or any other pasta. Tomate sauce over the pasta and the chicken (breaded with parmesan cheese and bread crumbs). It is a simple recipe but I know there are other recipes that include more seasoning, etc.
Usually for Thanksgiving Americans serve Turkey and all the works including pumpking pie. I decided to do something different this year which is ok! since I am not full american blood but a mixture of hispanic/ latina and spaniards (Spain). Have a Happy Day!!!!

Grazie :)
in effetti non è proprio "canonica" come ricetta, ma mi piace vedere come viene reinterpretata la cucina italiana in posti diversi :)

Grazie ancora :)
