A Sigh of Relief
I am currently learning Italian. Well... I am currently dabbling in learning Italian a few hours each week. And although I am progressing through my curriculum and goals, I don't feel like I'm actually progressing. ... I am listening to an Italian podcast to strengthen my listening skills. Each podcast is about 10 minutes long. At the end, the guy always says his closing remarks in Spanish, French, and English. My favorite part of the podcast is that first word in French! Ah, it sounds so natural to my Frenchish Creole ear! A wave of comfort rushes over me. Someday... someday I will feel the same when I here Italian. But, right now I can hardly believe that.
