    I have to write a composition for my italian class and i'd like someone who would be able to proofread it for me for spelling/grammar errors. It's only going to be 150 words so very short.

    Let me know if you can do this.

    I'm sorry, but I don't. I admire those that study a foreign language. Good luck on your project. Maybe a classmate would be willing to help you. ;)

    I'm half italian, understand a lot, dont speak much. The disgraceful thing about that is... my dad is italian, moved when 23 to UK. My mum is head of italian in a private school, and both my sisters have recently moved to italy.

    However, I'm sure i'd get a slap :p if I were to give her your homework... but private message it to me anyway and we'll see.

    Yes, I do!!

    Hi everybody and hello to you oldschool...

    we met on the 'Italiamac' forum.
    Thanks you, now I've found a good Mac forum other than my local one!

    I really have good memories of your city. I wasn't there as student though...
    I guess I'm a bit older than you (=finished my university long ago...).

    My plan was to work and live there....but then life took an other path and...
    I found myself back to Europe...

    So, if you need some advise about italian grammar.....any time! ;)

    Io parlo un poco italiano...I only took it for two years, and that was three years ago. Also, its sort of gotten mixed together with my spanish.

    The grammar was hell.
    I took italian as my 5th language in school and I almost failed my year because of it. I just could not get the grammer straight and my teacher, (a very sweet italian women) went nuts because of my poor skills.
    You would think that if you can speak french, italian should be easy, but no!
    I always wanted to learn italian after that tough. When I go to Italy I always regret not having tried harder. It's such a beautiful language!

    Ah italy…ah

    I know.....

    My girlfriend is french but, after two years, she still finds difficult to learn italian....
    On the other side I learned french quite quickly but I think this has got something to do with the fact that....we live in France! :D
