I decided to hire an Italian tutor. I found him off Craigslist. Scary? Maybe. He wasn’t though… he’s actually very nice and pretty hilarious. He lived in Milan for 6 years, and has been helpful so far.
I just suck so hard at Italian! Learning a language has been so difficult, especially since I don’t make time for studying. I’ve been using Rosetta Stone for a few months, and I think I am learning things, but am totally lost when putting together sentences and remembering verb conjugation. Can’t I just absorb vocabulary and grammar rules by osmosis or something?
