Here are my answers to this week’s Share Your World 15 May.

Sorry I am using my smartphone, the writing is quite difficult… Hope there are not too many typos.
1. How many languages do you you speak?

My mother tongue is Venetian, a sort of Italian dialect. But now, where I live, they speak Friulian, an ancient language with a grammar and literature. All road signs here are in Friulian. I can understand it, not speak it. Then, obviously as I am Italian, I speak 100% fluent Italian. At the University I graduated in German (for which I have got a proficiency level – a language I really love) and English (for which I have got a teaching position at School and a C1 level of the European Framework). When I was at High school I got my A levels in French, though. And then, as I am so curious, I have learnt some Spanish and Russian. I am planning to learn some Chinese and Arabic… When I will retire. 😀

2.What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating?

I am unsually reading more books at a time (not me really, I am getting older): ‘Je pense trop’ by Petitcollin; ‘the revolving door of life’ by A. McCall Smith; ‘ I giorni dell’abbandono ‘ by E. Ferrante. The funny thing is that I am reading them all original version.

I am watching ‘The Crown’.

I am listening to ‘Occidentali’s Karma’ by Francesco Gabbani. LISTEN AND DANCE! CLICK HERE

I have just eaten an home made spinach and salami pie. Delicious!

3.What was the last photo you took with your phone?

One of my roses.

4.What is your favourite time of day?
Early… Night! I am an owl. And then in the morning I force myself to get up. I would like to have longer sleeping time. I can’t get more than 6/7 hours a night.
Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

*grateful: For mother’s day and my kids’ love

*looking forward: A long weekend

  1. Spinach and salami? When I used to eat meat, salami was one of my favorites. I would cut great chunks of it and eat it by itself. And I love that you can speak so many languages. And fluently!

    • I love salami, Italian style obviously 😎
      And talking about languages, I believe once you learn a foreign language it is easy to learn another one. Maybe I have been particularly lucky because where I live in just less than 2 hours drive I can reach Austria or France or Croatia or Slovenia and so this involves 4 different languages, opportunities to speak another language have always been huge for me.


      • A two hour drive for me means Death Valley California, Zion National Park Utah, or Kingman Arizona. All English speaking. No accents. Nothing remotely different from where I live. 🙂

      • Well, but you get the chance to see wonderful wide natural parks, which are quite difficult to see here in the old crowded Europe ☺

    • Thank you! The song is now tuned everywhere in Europe. Even if the rhythm is “easy” the lyrics are a critique against all western contemporary life styles.
