Nicola Pellegrini

Pasadena, MD, USA


Italian Speaker


I am a native born Italian and although I spoke mostly a dialect in Italy I have improved my knowledge of standard Italian by taking language courses on my own for the past 14 years in both the US and in Italy. Although I do not consider myself fluent in standard Italian, my speaking skills are very good and my reading and comprehension skills are excellent.
