We'll be traveling to Europe sometime in the near future and I signed up to take an Italian Language class at the local high school. The class includes culture and how to order from the menu and get around as a tourist. I'm a disaster when it comes to language study but I hope to at least get my ear in tune to Italian and learn a little more about being a good tourist.
That's great Angie! You will love even more being there; when you are able to interact a little with the locals, you feel more part of the picture. And I ensure you, it is a pretty one.
