  • Hello Rosa
    I improved my english when last fryday I acepted an invitation to eat pizza in a restaurant with 8 persons. They were the parents of my son friends from school, he is six years old. I've never met them before just my friend Marita who was the person that invited me. The joke was that everyone was Greek and I had to speak english for about three hours during dinner...
    Was it great?
