My Greek

My Greek

I started to learn Greek two years ago, because I’m from Naples and I decided to learn more about the history of my city, which was founded by the Greeks. I thought that if I want to know the history of Naples, I also have to understand a bit of Greek. Two […]

My Japanese

My Japanese

I started studying Japanese in 2008. Since at that time I was always looking for new jobs, I did not have much time to study Japanese. Because of this, I only learned the syllabaries (hiragana and katakana) and the most important words. After that, for eight years, I did not study Japanese at all. […]

My Italian

My English

My English

English has been the first foreign language that I’ve learned. I honestly can’t say exactly when I started with English, I was probably 8 years old or something like that… I probably started by listening to my sister’s albums, we had CD’s at the time… and most of them had booklets on […]
