Hello dear readers! Christmas is around the corner… 🙂 🙂 🙂
Let’s be honest… Christmas is all about receiving gifts and giving them in return, celebrating love with friends and family: at least nowadays we have that type of mindset. And since you all know my love for books, why not buying one for your family and friends?
Nowadays it is very important if not necessary to know a second language, especially if it is English which is considered the most international and spoken one today. I also think that Chinese and Spanish will soon be added to this category.
Do you know what this title means? First of all, it belongs to an old and very popular song written by Renato Carosone, but it has been rearranged today becoming so popular that you can dance it all over the world!
That sentence means: “You act like an American/ You wanna be an American” and it refers to all those emigrants who from Italy, especially from Naples as the song says, moved to United States and when they happen to travel back to their homeland for holidays for example, they act like “big shot” Americans who have it all, when in reality they have nothing.
Another passion I have is MUSIC and I have been searching for songs which contain different languages. The first song that came to my mind was
“Baila (Sexy thing)” by Zucchero
He is an Italian international singer and not just one of the most popular in Italy, but also in Spain and Latin America as in the rest of the world. He likes to mix languages in his songs: I think it can be considered his own way of being international. (He has been singing here in Norway too and I even had the honor to have dinner with him after the concert, what an unforgettable experience!).
