Studio l'italiano da pochi mesi. E sì, adoro l'italiano. L'italiano è la lingua che più si addice all'opera. Si dice che l'italiano sia una lingua molto difficile. L'italiano occupa il quinto posto nel mondo tra le lingue più studiate. L'italiano è una lingua piena di passione. Parlo italiano molto meno frequentemente che inglese o lo spagnolo. Trovo questa lingua abbastanza facile da imparare rispetto a molte altre lingue.
