Grazie Rosa! I miss Italy and I show it through this blog. My love for food, especially Italian food, is huge! I visited your blog as well, it looks great and I love the thought behind it.

Just found your blog and I already love it! You sound like a great person to hang out with and chat over yummy food. I’ve only recently started to get into baking and cooking and really want to try some of your recipes. I just need to find some people to test them on too :)

Hi Sarah, aww thank you!! I’d love to hear you tried one of my recipes, let me know if you do! And I would love to taste, but I guess we live a little far away from each other. Have a nice Tuesday!

Hi there :) Absolutely love your blog. Just curious, do you speak any other languages?

Hi Alisa, thank so much, I really appreciate it!
Other than Dutch and Italian, I speak English, French and (a little) German (I studied it for years, but I just can’t find a way to remember all the rules ^^). I love languages!! Where are you from?

I’m originally from Germany, but moved to the U.S. at age 8. German was my first language and it’s definitely challenging! I hope to move back to Germany after graduating from university next year, so I’m taking German courses to refresh my memory and it is even difficult for me at times!
Wow, that’s impressive! I love languages too and I can only wish that I spoke as many languages as you. May I ask how you learned these languages and if you’ve ever used any language learning programs? I want to learn a few more, but at age 21 sometimes I feel like it may be too late :/
Thank you :)

It’s never too late, especially not at 21! It might take you a tiny bit longer, but it’s totally achievable.
It’s awesome that you want to move back to your roots like I did, I know it will be worth it. Even if you would stay just for a while, I think it helps is knowing “where you come from” and in knowing yourself a little better too.
I studied French for 11 years; It’s the first foreign language you study at school in Italy (or at least where I lived, because it was so near the border with France). I started studying English pretty late, at age 15. German at 17. Both of the in High School (I choose to specialize in languages) I studied Latin there too (didn’t like that at all). Then I went to University, where I studied all three languages into detail, I learned so much there, we had lots of interactive classes, as well as theoretical lessons. After graduating I moved to Holland and I started working for an International company; that’s when I got really fluent in English. That’s about it :) I never took real courses because I already studied everything at school. I just did the exams to get the certificates in the languages I studied.
Good Luck with finishing Uni and with moving to Germany. I am sure you can do it! You will be in a context with all German people, speaking German all t he time, so you will learn the language even without courses pretty fast. Keep me updated! ;)
