“Full immersion” Italian lessons are messing with my mind
Immersion means ‘solo Italiano’ - only Italian is spoken - which is a great, in principle. I agree that sometimes you need the pressure on to rise to the occasion.
Today was day two of class and we waded into naming the rellos on the family tree. I was was prompted to suggest to the tutor that many in the intensive one-week class may only do that one week. I think the expression “I want to order a coffee from the waiter, not ask after his fucking brother-in-law” may have got my point across.
