My Sixth Day in Italy

Time goes by so fast, especially when we are having fun. I can’t believe that my studying abroad in Italy has passed a half way.

Today, I want to share a very funny story with you. I have a good Italian painting friend whose name is Virginia. When I called her name, all my classmates ( all of them are Italian) including my painting teacher bursted out. I didn’t understand why they were laughing so loud.

Then, my teacher explained that my pronounceation of her name sounded like a vergina in Italian! I tried out to correct my pronunciation, but it made them laugh harder. I also started laughing with them. It’s very hard for me to prounuce her name in Italian, and I will keep calling her Vergina, lol. I am very sorry, Verginia! I hope you will forgive me.
