  1. Hi, buongiornopasta. We all know at least one language, so why shouldn't we be able to learn another? I think you might be overloading your brain with information, with all those podcasts and apps. Especially since you say you study every day. Normally that would be a good thing (a very good thing), but in your case I really think you're trying to handle too much information all at once and it's having the opposite effect. Keep studying every day but try focusing on fewer things, maybe just a book and your favourite podcast.
  2. Hi Paco. The sentence you posted is perfect. Both "peggio" and "peggiore" are correct. "Peggio" is maybe slightly more common, but "peggiore" is fine too. It's just a matter of personal preference, so use the one that sounds better to you.
  3. Hi, I'm a native Italian speaker trying to learn German. You haven't specified your preferred method of communication. I don't have Facebook or Skype, is it okay if we talk via private messages here on Linguaholic?
  4. Since you liked Wir sind Helden, you'll probably like Juli too. Here's a couple of their songs: Ein neuer Tag Egal wohin And if you'd like to try something a little different, listen to this:
  5. Hi, I'm GurzoDelBorneoMeridionale, but you can call me Gurzo. I'm an Italian man who's trying (not without some difficulty) to learn German and French. I'm here to learn and help others learn, so if you have any questions or doubts about Italian, feel free to ask me.
  6. My current bucket list includes: German - I love the way it sounds and I'd like to be able to read Goethe's poems in their original language. Germany actually has a lot of authors that I'd like to read in German. French - I hate French, hehe okay maybe hate is a strong word but I don't love it. My main reasons for learning it are 1. I keep meeting French people and most of them don't speak English 2. Balzac. 3. It's a useful language and quite similar to my native language. Russian - I have a bit of a crush on Putin, I'm not sure if this counts as a reason. I'm an avid reader and Russia has a rich literary tradition. Japanese - I know it might seem childish, but, well, I grew up with Japanese cartoons and now that I'm an adult I'd like to know more about these people. Norwegian - I fell in love with Knut Hamsun and I want to understand the Norwegian soul. Finnish - The Finnish language is extremely beautiful, both visually and the way it's spoken. Icelandic - I like the fact that it hasn't changed much in hundreds of years and it's the language in which ancient Norse mythology is written.
  7. Yes, Swedish. I started learning it because I had heard that it's the most useful Scandinavian language, but I quickly realised that I didn't like it. Although I did all the exercises and studied everyday, I felt like I wasn't making any progress. The pronunciation was driving me crazy. After a couple of weeks I just gave up.
