Well, unfortunately we missed the first class of our Italian 2 course last Wed (because I kept thinking that we had 2 weeks OFF - not that we were supposed to be BACK in 2 weeks :( ). But yesterday we hit the books again. We had quite a bit to catch up on (lots of food vocab, and a long list of verbs). We're trying to get better at remembering to speak Italian when we can at home...normally asking what the weather's like, what we're having for dinner, using random adjectives in the middle of English sentences! It's funny that a lot of time we know most of the words of a sentence that we're trying to make!
Per pranzo del Erin: tortollini formaggio, insalate con venduno, avacado, e condimiento. Per pranzo del Chris: riso e fagiolo rosso con erbe, e formaggio, avacado, aglio, peperone, e pomodoro panino. Per cena: venduno panini e cavolo con sedano, cipolla, e erbe....e un dolce (pasticcio mela)! (I'm sure this may not be 100% correct...)
So, needless to say, we have begun labeling the house: (furniture, food, appliances, etc) to help with the vocabulary!
