My first Blog!
FROM 20 JUNE UNTIL 28TH JULY ANTONIO BLOGGED ON THIS SITE
I am very pleased to be the first student blogger and I want to thank the whole staff of BBC Learning English for this opportunity. I hope all the student readers will be able to enjoy my blogs and I'll be waiting for a lot of daily comments.
Firstly, I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Antonio Tanzola, I'm 22 years old and I'm an Italian student. I come from Sant'Arsenio, a little village of 3000 people in the South of Italy, but I've been living in Turin since I begun my university course three years ago. I'm going to be an engineer, but a strange one.. in fact my course name is 'Cinema and Media Engineering'. This course takes after Computer Engineering but in addiction there are some subjects about sociology, communication, new and old media. Don't worry if you don’t understand who this kind of engineer is, I've been asking to me that for years but I haven't still found an answer!
However I adore cinema and I dream of becoming a film director.. my favourite ones are Alfred Hitchcock and Stanley Kubrick. Yesterday I saw Kubrick's Barry Lyndon in original language (in English) and I understood everything! Do you think that's because of my excellent English knowledge or because I had already seen it in Italian more then one hundred times? Eheheh!!!
Last week I did the FCE (First Certificate in English) and after this exam I left Turin for a one week holyday in Sant'Arsenio with my family. I'm still there but I have to come back in Turin on next week because of another exam.. after that I will be free for about two months during which I hope I will be able to go on holyday in London.
Finally, I would like to welcome Ms Wicaksono whose first blog I've just read. Five years ago I went in London on holyday for two weeks and I remember that all my friends complained about English food and English weather. I think Italian people are used to complain about foreign food! However I make exception because my perfect breakfast consists of bacon and eggs, an orange juice and a cup of tea (sometimes with a little milk). And about the weather.. I hate the hot one! I miss the soft London rain which you could walk under just wearing a kway.
See you tomorrow..
Ciao ('bye' or 'hello' in Italian)
