If you're scared to try learning a new language because you have a speech impediment, just remember that there's native speakers of that language who also have speech impediments.
Maybe you'll always struggle with certain sounds in the language you're learning. Maybe you'll never be able to pronounce some things "correctly." But you're not alone and there's tons of native speakers who have been speaking that language their whole lives and sound just like you do.

Hi! Thank you for sharing all this info on your blog!! I work as a nursing assistant and was wondering if you could share any vocab that you know related to healthcare?
I did this vocab list on La Salud related words that might be helpful
It covers a lot of things from parts of the body to different diseases or ailments to basic medical things that I could think of
I would also add to that:
la sanidad = health / health services
sano/a = healthy sano/a y salvo/a = "safe and sound"
como un roble = "a very healthy person" [lit. "like an oak"] estar como un roble = "to have good physical health" [sort of like "fit as a fiddle", but it's "to be like an oak (in terms of condition/health)"] fuerte como un roble = "strong as an ox" [lit. "strong as an oak"]
la cordura = sanity [good mental health]
cuerdo/a = sane [in good mental health]
I also want to point out that there are sometimes differences in medical care depending on the country or region
Sometimes un consultorio médico [lit. something like "medical doctor's office" or "medical consultancy"] is sort of like a smaller practice in more rural areas, while la clínica as a "doctor's office" is more standard... not exactly a "clinic" the way we might use it in English, but the same idea as where you would see a primary doctor
I believe - and I could be wrong, I would need to look at more sources and check with native speakers - that there are sometimes different words associated with private practices or private hospitals vs. the ones you
There's also sometimes un centro médico "medical center" which is usually specific, like if you were going somewhere to get a certain kind of x-ray or an MRI or to have specific medical procedures
And the standard el hospital is generally the big one that can do most procedures, but again sometimes differences between private ones
el quirófano = operating room
las urgencias = the emergency room, the ER la sala de emergencias = the emergency room, ER
el ambulatorio = walk-in clinic / outpatient ambulatorio/a = "walk-in" [both adj and could be people]
hospitalizado/a = hospitalized [when referring to people could also be "inpatient"]
hospitalario/a = inpatient
ambulatorio/a is related to the idea of "ambulant" or "walking", so they're people who can leave... hospitalizado/a as "inpatient" means someone is going to stay in the hospital
When it comes to "inpatient care" you sometimes see it as el tratamiento hospitalario so the word hospitalario/a is more of a general adjective not usually used for people
Again, I don't know too much about actual medical vocabulary aside from the basics, so if there are things you would like to know specifically let me know and I'll look into it

There's a thing you need to know: we, as Italians, are very very happy to see a foreign trying to speak and/or write our complicated language. No matter if you make mistakes we don't care (I'm only checking those in your texts to help you, cause if you're here Ig you want to get better in your writing and language comprehension, right?) we REALLY DON'T CARE we're just over the moon with the fact that you're trying.
So really, don't be scared to put yourself out there and use Italian if you want to (not to mention that the more you speak/write, especially with natives, the easier it'll become) we won't really judge you (especially because we may not be good in your language, and so we actually respect you and your ability with ours). Just enjoy and have fun... we may even start to overthink if your speaking is a little bit messed up, but we'll understand you anyway. You don't have to try too hard: we'll do all the job.
Detto questo, grazie per i testi che avete scritto e continuerete a scrivere! Mi state dando dei suggerimenti molto utili per aiutarvi meglio e soprattutto, mi state consigliando tante cose nuove!

4. Make a recipe in your target language. If you can’t do that, translate a recipe from your native to your targer ot vice versa
Ich habe nicht genug Zeit oder Energie, um ein Rezept zu folgen. Deshalb werde ich heute ein Rezept für ein Mug-Brownie übersetzen. Ich werde dieses Rezept übersetzen. Es ist einer meiner schnelle Lieblingsrezepte.
2 Esslöffel Mehl
2 Esslöffel Kakaopulver
2 Esslöffel Zucker
1/8 Teelöffel Salz
1/4 Teelöffel Backpulver
1 Esslöffel Canolaöl, geschmolzen Kokonussöl oder veganische Butter
3 Esslöffel pflanzliche Milche
1/2 Teelöffel Vanille-Extrakt
2 Esslöffel pflanzliche Schokoladenstückchen
Addiere das Mehl, das Kakaopulver, die Zucker, das Salz, und das Backpulver in einer Tasse. Umrühre, um zu kombinieren.
Gieß das Öl, die pflanzliche Milche und die Vanille in der Tasse mit der trockenen Bestandteile, und Umrühre mit einem Löffel.  Stell die Schokoladenstückchen.
Koch in der Microwelle 40-60 sekunden.
Sofort serviere.

nothing is as tender as annotating your favourite books. it’s like leaving a piece of your heart on the pages for somebody else to find.

Hey did you know I keep a google drive folder with linguistics and language books  that I try to update regularly 
UPDATE because apparently not everyone has seen this yet the new and improved version of this is a MEGA folder
I know there's so many more urgent things but if you like this resource you may consider buying me a ko-fi to keep this project alive

Concurrences exercise #...idk
Short exercise about adjective-noun-article concurrence (this is not a gender-free exercise cause Italian grammar is still very related to genders and there are occasions in which is hard to find a gender-free way of writing). Make your choice and check it under the keep reading link (+ some rules). I divided it into singular and plural versions.
(Don't scroll too much further if you have the "expand" thing on. The questions are 7)
1. the younger sister/s A. la sorella minora B. la sorella minore C. la sorella minori
D. le sorella minore E. le sorelle minori F. le sorelle minore
2. the big dog/s A. il cane grande B. lo cane grando C. lo cane grande D. i cani grandi E. li cani grandi F. i cani grande
3. the big rock/s A. il sasso grossi B. lo sasso grosso C. il sasso grosso
D. i sassi grossi E. li sassi grosso F. i sasso grossi
4. the small egg/s A. la uova piccola B. l'uovo piccolo C. lo uova piccolo D. lo uovo piccolo
E. le uova piccole F. le uove piccole G. li uovi piccoli H. i uovi piccoli
5. the broken arm/s (human body) A. il braccio rotto B. la braccia rotta C. lo braccio rotto
D. le braccie rotte E. i bracci rotti F. le braccia rotte
6. the green field/s A. lo campo verde B. il campo verde C. il campo verdo
D. li campi verdi E. i campi verdi F. il campo verdi
7. the black piano/s A. le pianoforte nere B. il pianoforte nere C. il pianoforte nero
D. i pianiforte nero E. li pianoforte neri F. i pianoforti neri
Thanks tumblr for adding the "expand" thing: so very useless if it removes the keep reading link as well. So I basically have to make this longer? Okay.
Pianoforte is one of the few composed nouns that acts as a normal noun (changes the final vowel when it turns plural)
Egg: the weirdo noun. It's masculine when singular (L'uovo) but it turns feminine when it's plural (LE uova). One more problem: the article. Remember that the plural is so even if you have the noun ending in -a. I wrote a post already about it if you want to get more into details.
Similar things happens with il braccio and le braccia. I added "human body" cause, "braccio" can also be a mechanic one (of a crane, e.g.). In this case, the plural stays at the masculine: i bracci. Again, I go more in detail in an older post.
Some articles, as "grande", "maggiore and "minore", have only singular and plural. They have no change in genre, no matter the subject: e.g. mia sorella minore, mio fratello minore; le mie sorelle minori, i miei fratelli minori.
