Vito's first blog
Hello to everyone and thank you so much giving me this opportunity.
I really hope to not have problems to explain what I have in my mind and please excuse me for all the mistakes that I'm sure there will be in my written.
For my first blog let me introduce myself explaining the reason because I'm here.
My name is Vito Stelfi, I was born in Italy where I live whith all my family.
I work as accountant in a small factory near here.
I'm forty-four years old, I'm married and I have two lovely children. They go to the secondary level school and to the primary school.
We live in the north Italy in a little country near a beautiful like name's Lake Maggiore.
Just one year ago I went to an English course in the evening, after work, twice a week for six months. This course was really helpful for me but anway I know my limits and I'm sure to still have a lot of things to learn. Unfortunately I can't go to the evening class this year because it's quiet distant from my country and to go there, there are almost twenty kilometers by car........
Like everyone we always have a lot of others things to do more important for the family so this is the reason because I have to practise online.
In this site I found a lot of interesting things to read and to listen but sometimes they are quiet difficult for me because I'm at the beginning.
In some sites around the web it's difficult to find mother tongue English people who are interestend to learn Italian so it's difficult too to have a tandem exercise.
I don't know why, but there are a lot of people who want to learn English and less people who want to learn Italian. Very often there are some foreign friends to speak English with, but not from England but from all over the world, and sometimes this is better, because they can understand my spoken (also with some mistakes) but without problems.
Anyway I think to have found a great opportunity in this site, whit a lot of interesting materials and where I'll be able to have a chat with people from all over the world.
Best regards to all for now
