I've been an ex-pat for about 20 years. I lived in Pakistan, Dubai, Jerusalem, and now in Italy. By education/profession, I am a painter, jewelry designer, art teacher, and published author of a novel. I always showed interest in learning new languages but so far mastered only the English language and Serbo-Croatian. My knowledge of the Italian language is enough to get me by in everyday tasks. I am a mother of three kids and a dog named Mika. I have had experience in teaching, in an international school, therefore, I find this opportunity to teach you a new language very exciting. Thank you!
Like any other language really, easy if you're eager to learn, yet hard if you lack a motivation.
Yes, more in terms of the overall interest shown in learning this particular language.
