Today we had our first day of ‘intensive’ Italian language studies.   We were warned about how we would be taught using an Italian structure (no English is supposed to be used).  This will definitely speed along the learning, but makes it far worse if you’re called on.  The professor did a great job of calling on me… A lot..

We just have this language class this week along with a class called “At Home in Rome.”  This class will take us to on-site visits to many places around Rome to help teach us about the history, culture, and cityscape.
