    I am learning B2 German from Deutsche Welle site and just started Italian on duolingo to simply and fast learn basics and get used to new language, then I can buy some books xD I hope it's gonna be interesting. I was uncertain whether to start or but crazy Spanish eurofans were the reason to pick Italian instead xD

    I suggest also Memrise for Italian, I find the app more aesthetically pleasing, which, at least in my case, helps with motivation. And it's very fun as well.

    Good luck with Italian!

    Thanks I will check for sure!
    I plan to visit Italy but to me it's uncomfortable to go to countries which language I don't speak at all. I even learned some Czech before visiting even if Czech is so similar to Polish. this is so me

    Re: Your linguistic skills

    - My native language.

    - My first foreign language, started learning it at school when I was ten years old. I think my English skills are ok, I can understand most things unless it´s a strong dialect or when a text contains too many technical terms. When it comes to speaking I often have to think a lot when I start a conversation since I don´t speak the language all that often, but after a few minutes the person I´m talking to has to slow me down a bit.

    - My second foreign language, had it for two years. I really like the language and had good grades, but due to a lack of practise I´ve sadly forgotten most of it. At least I can still introduce myself and order something to drink, which I used a lot when I went on holidays on Gran Canaria this May.

    - The language of my parents. They tried to teach me Polish when I was a little child, but sadly I was pretty stubborn and refused to learn the language, so my skills are limited to a few basic words like "hello", "thank you" or "goodbye". This is really something I regret, since I still have many relatives in Poland and most of them neither speak English nor German.
