Italian is not spanish, but my spanish is definitely getting better.
I have my trusty little phrase and word book and am trying to get my point across to the italians.
Not so much.
Whenever i think the word would not be the same between the 2 languages – guess what – it is!
Like signature – is firma But pen is mapa not pluma.
Took me forever to find it in the book and it was the same word – grrrr
So every time i attempt to remember an Italian word my brain flips to Spanish. So my conversational Spanish is getting a ton better in my head!
The people here either think it is cute when i try Italian or get 100% annoyed when i do. Very interesting dichotomy.
I am getting more familiar with greetings, but i still want to say Hasta Luego which would probably be a swear word!
I think i’ll do a better job at learning the language if we end up doing another visit internationally!
