    1. Yeah learning Italian would be amazing, it’s such a beautiful language I agree. Have you tried Duolingo? It’s free and it’s really fun I have learned Polish this way, (my partner he is from Poland) and it really helped me when I met his family. I highly recommend Duolingo if you want to start learning a language. 🙂 Take care mate
