I've been listening to a bunch of orchestral music lately, let's leave it at that. Also, I'm quite interested in Ancient Rome. Yeah, so they spoke Latin, but Italian is its closest relative. And Latin sounds kinda rough with the "us" and "k" sounds everywhere.

They say Italian is the most melodious language in the world...but most of the Italian I hear at home would be my dad cursing at inopportune moments *snicker* Too bad he says it too swiftly for me to catch the actual words =*

He's forgotten quite a bit of the language (living in Sydney for over 50 years does that)...still, he would make a good practicing partner if I decided to learn it again.

It was compulsory during my year 7 (that would be equivalent to early middle school for you Americans), but I didn't try to keep up with it afterward because I wasn't much interested in the language then.

That said, I wouldn't actually want to live in the country, if mostly because it's Catholicland, and I am very much a liberal atheist - it'd stick out like a sore thumb if I spoke up.
