thy name is Italiano.
(and I'm sure I did not use that word correctly)
I just got done with a 2 hour Italian session and my brain is fried. My husband is amazingly patient with what seems to be an insurmountable wall of my not understanding the language. He dutifully corrects my butchered words and reminds me again and again of seemingly simple words I cannot remember - such as "tra" and "piu".
Intellectually, I know these things just take practice and time. I know that while I am studying regularly, I have not done it so intensively that I should expect to know and understand Italian well. But gosh, it is so frustrating. What is wrong with my brain?
It's been a long time since I studied anything. Maybe I should get some of those memory enhancing supplements? *sigh* Will I ever get it?
