Mon Frere is learning Italiano

My little brother loves Italian culture. During a discussion one day we concluded that most likely his past life was born in Venice. In just the 5 grade (he’s 8th now) he learned about Venice’s water issues. And he felt SO deeply compelled and didn’t know why. He talks about visiting. And he knows a lot about Ancient Rome.

We went to Borders the other day and finally I bought him “Italian in 10 Minutes a Day.” lately he encourages me to do language sessions (I have the french version of the book). There is no language program at his middle school so he’s lucky and happy to get this head start.

Again – people will learn when they desire to do so.

Update 09/13/09: He now owns two other Italian language books, and he is really dedicating himself to knowing the language, especially after I referred him to some more interactive audio-visual sites online.
