How are you all? I’m doing pretty good, just had a very nice home cooked lunch with my roommate, who just went back to school. My classes are from nine to one each day. I’m in the BII class, which is a bit advanced. Right now we are doing a lot of recapping which for me is quite good since as it turns out, I forgot quite a lot of verbs , words and grammar rules.
On Monday we had a meeting at school where I did my Italian test for my level, which wasn’t too hard and afterwards we had lunch with all the new people. There are about thirty Israelian Arabs in my school who are all learning Italian here to be able to study here. Afterwards we did a tour around Perugia and I met Caroline, an Australian girl (woman, turns out she is 30, but no-one would say) and we bought our schoolbooks! Alex and I made pasta for the night (yes mummy pretty much like the recipe you taught me the day before you left) and I must say I’m quite proud of awesome it tasted! (actually I had it for lunch again the next day!) At night we had a big group of the Arabs over in the apartment for some argrila (shisha) and I was proclaimed the princes haha… (after that I decided to go to bed, being a princes in a group of 10 guys might not be the best thing)
Tuesday was the first day of the actual lessons. I’m in a class with about five or six other people, the Australian girl, two/three Arabs (changes between grammar en conversation lessons) and a girl from Ecuador (Beatriz) who joined in later on the day. She is really nice, she also wants to study in Italy.
Normally I would have about 30 minutes homework each day, but since I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist and over do the learning on the verbs, words and do waaaay to many exercises, I spend about two or three hours each day on studying! It’s quite relaxing though and since I don’t have other things to do than study and sleep. Alex and I found an Italian show on television which is quite entertaining: what do the Italians prefer, a big game show and people have to choose between two objects each time with some Italian bimbo dancing all the time! (they prefer Beckham over Kaka!)
Wednesday, today, since the only way of uploading this on the internet is at school before my lessons start, (internet in the apartment in a few days though!) has been about studying as well, no plans for the night yet. Tomorrow I might go and actually do something cultural like a museum or some churches! Walking around in Perugia is so tiring though, it is so steep and some many steps.. the view is amazing everywhere though. (mummy & joke, bring good walking shoes next week)
I also got a Italian number, so for those who miss stalking me: +39 38912 79396
(ps. Daddy, yes I get why boys tend to help me about with my bags, but these were so nice not to make an advances after… & twitter, really?)
