Learning Italian #4

by Lisa

Isn’t it amazing how you can learn a language step-by-step, and integrate the learning program into your daily life? Here not lesson 4 of 40, so after this, we will have mastered 10% of the course. Indeed, this sounds rather terrifying than empowering. On the other side, there is still so so much to learn. And I’m excited about it, are you, too?
