Our Day at the Market
Getting out of the classroom is always a fun way to learn. As a group, we went to the local market to help practice our Italian. At the market we spoke to the booth workers, asking them how much various items cost. Being in this situation was a great and fun way to practice our Italian.
Our teacher has been teaching us to speak Italian for a week and a half now. Although we were confident about speaking it in the classroom, putting it to the test in real life situations is always scary. However, we were prepared enough from our lessons to hold a conversation with Sorrento natives at the market. We went around asking the cost of items, the hours the market was open, and how many days a week it was open.
Overall, it was the perfect experience to be able to put our knowledge of the Italian language to the test.
