  1. It could be Russian, Ukrainian or Belarusian, cursive script. I can make out almost all the letters, but since I don't know the language in question I don't know if my guesses are correct. The first line is "Уважение гостей!" The last line says "С уважением, ....."

Notes: Well, I decided not to sleep tonight in order to correct my sleep schedule, which has been all over the place these past couple of days. Therefore, I had a lot of time to work on my languages. I started lear
  3. This is what my usual schedule looks like: 1. Listen to the audio with the book closed. 2. Read the entire Italian text and highlight unknown and unintelligible words. 3. Read the grammar notes. 4. Listen to the audio while reading the Italian text until I understand everything. 5. Just listen to the audio to make sure my listening comprehension is up to par. 6. Finish the exercises. 7. If I understood everything, I then usually listen to the last 2-5 lesson, depending on how much time I have. I only refer to the translation on the right side for single words, I try to get the jist just by
  4. Thanks for the kind comments and for stopping by. I'm loving the Italian Assimil book. I'm up to lesson 59 now, and a lot of the grammar that wasn't clear before is suddenly starting to clear up. The lessons are fairly interesting and in the later ones you get a lot of texts about Italy itself, the education, job interviews etc. It's a pretty good book in my book.

  6. I'm pretty sure the shape of your tongue has nothing to do with it, and that your tongue is normal. It's just because you were introduced to and tried to reproduce that sound later in your life and not when you were a little kid. I have trouble pronouncing the Arabic "ain". Does that mean that the shape of my throat is not suited for pronouncing it? No. It just means that I need to practice more.
  7. 1. Yes. 2. They do incorporate English, but most of the professors are non-native English speakers.
  8. Yes, in that context it is correct. But you can't say "You and me need to have a talk", you have to say "you and I".
  9. The correct term is "You and I" or "I and you", but everybody uses "me" instead in colloquial speech. "I" is a Personal Pronoun, "me" is an Object Pronoun. Edit: Some examples: As a PP: You and I are going to the bar tomorrow. What if you and I don't make it on time? As an OP: He gave the money to me and you. She said that she will kill me and you. So as a subject you would use "I" and as an object "me".
  10. Maybe we can open a "Chat thread" in each "lounge". It's not live, but it will do.
  11. Ciao a tutti. Non ho scritto niente per tre settimane. Non ho avuto tempo per studiare l'italiano perché ho dovuto studiare per gli esami. Ho un appartamento a Novi Sad, ma per le vacanze sono tornato nel mio paesino, così ho potuto celebrarle con la mia famiglia.
  12. I'll also try to write some greetings for informal and formal/polite situations. If I have made a mistake, please correct me. Greetings: Ciao - Hi (informal) Buongiorno / Salve - Good morning/afternoon / Hello (polite) Buonasera - Good evening (polite) Questions: Come va? - How's it going? (informal) Come stai? - How are you? (informal) Come sta? - How are you? (polite) lit. How is he/she? Responses: Bene, grazie. - Fine, thanks. Non c'è male. - Not bad. Tutto bene. - All is well. If your interlocutor asked you first and you responded with the above, then add "E tu? - And y
