I know a really great guy who's actually related to the multilingual teen (intelligence and talent runs in their family), who said I can stay at his place in Switzerland when he's away traveling. A great invite! But the only "problem" is that it's in the Italian area, and I haven't studied Italian in a while, which means I won't be able to speak it.
I shouldn't fret because I can always take a phrase book with me, but still--I'd like to be able to speak to people around there. And it only emphasizes the fact that I really want to know the language of wherever I go, which is an impossible task, of course :D
Not only that, but the Italian is more like Lombard than real Italian. My Italian speaking friends can't make heads or tails of it. One guy said they may as well be speaking Arabic.
