[quote=Suki;360203] I'm confessing, I got a bad habit, I tend to use English all the time when travelling and don't even try to speak a word of the language that's spoken in the country I'm in,

Good point!! you smart girl! You know that speaking just english is not a good way to know new culture and meet people. I agree. Also here in Florence, there are many especially Americans who just speak english all around (of course not every american but many!! ) I dont say it's bad, but the language is the culture, better respect it at least in the country which use their own language. mmm I wonder if I explain well....

short italian lesson for u;

ciao. Sono Tomoko. Piacere ( shake hands the 1st meet, eventually 2 kisses on the cheek ,,,, spanish do 3 times? lol). Come ti chiami? Sei una studentessa (o un Studente for boy, obviously)? E sono di Giappone, ma di dove sei? Se ti va, prendiamo un cappuccino insieme?
