  • Learning Italian????

    So I go to Italy every year to visit my cousins, but don't speak much Italian. I am going in July and want to learn as much Italian as possible. I know some, but not too much. I can get by, but not enough to have an indepth conversation. I'm latino so I speak pretty good Spanish jsyk. What should I do to learn as much as possible before I go to Italy and whilst I'm in Italy? Any text books you recommend? I have Rosetta Stone Level One but it doesnt work very well and I only use the computer program not the audio since I dont have a CD player.... Thanks. Also, how should I learn the Italian grammar? Don't diss my English grammar I'm a straight A student Im just typing this fast lmao. and I will be there for almost 8 weeks

  • Flute to clarinet?????

    Last year, I played clarinet in the school band for several months and advanced extremely quickly, but I decided to switch to the flute. I have played flute for almost a year now and am considering switching back. I have so many problems with flute, even though I advanced quickly, due to the fact that I have braces and quite often get chapped lips. I don't want to be switching back and forward, but I love them both; although, I don't want to embarrass myself next year in my first year of high school if I suck at flute. I also wouldn't have much time to make the transition since I will be away for most of the summer and will have about 3 or 4 lessons at most if I am lucky. Thanks.

  • Question on South Miami. PLEASE HELP!?

    I might be moving to South Miami, is it a nice area? Is it good for a family? Is it expensive? How is the high school as I will be a freshman who is at the top of his class at an outstanding school in the Northeast? Is there anyway I could attend Coral Gables Senior High School, Miami Killian Senior High School, Miami Palmetto High School, or any other great schools? How good is South Miami Senior High School? Are there any job opportunities here by the way? How snobby/ wealthy is this area? Is there stuff to do? Sorry for all of these questions I am a bit nervous.

  • Moving to North Miami Beach?

    How is moving to North Miami beach for a single mom and a teenage boy. How is the high school and opportunity? I'm at the top of my class now and don't want to go to a crappy school. Is it cheap, considering we have a low income? Is it ghetto and dangerous? Are there any areas you can recommend? We've considered Homestead, Kendall, Coral Gables, and sort of Aventura, but Coral Gables is a bit expensive. I think buying would be best since we'd be selling our house, and we could buy a foreclosed house; does this seem like a good idea, or would renting be better? I don't want to make a mistake and sorry for asking so many questions. Thanks. Oh and how are the job opportunities for my mom? And could I work as a bagger or something on weekends at age 14?

  • North Miami Beach vs. Aventura. Please Help.?

    For those of you who are familiar with the Northern Miami area, which of these areas are better for me and my mother. I have posted several other questions involving me moving to Miami, but I will restate my circumstances. I am 14 years old and going to one of the best public schools in the Northeast and have a lot of family in Miami. Due to major financial and personal issues, my mother and I are planning on moving somewhere in Miami. We are poor but not dirt poor, but since we will be selling our house in a high income, desirable area we will have some extra money. There is a lone which my mother will use part of the sales money to pay off, but we definitely can't buy in an expensive area. I am at the top of my class at a rigorous school, so I would prefer continuing a good education; and also considering the fact that I would like to study dentistry or medicine. There is just the two of us, we need a cheaper house and would prefer buying but may rent; although my mother hates those high rise apartments. We want a nice, not too ghetto area where she will be able to find a job, and where I will be in a good school system. We have considered Kendall, Homestead, and somewhat Coral Gables although Gables is expensive. Also, if you can suggest some other places; I used city data but couldn't find much.

    I know this is long, but I am scared of making the wrong decision. Oh yeah and I have some family in Homestead, Coral Gables, and some other places in Miami since I'm Latino lol. Thanks

  • Good schools in or near Homestead, Fl?

    I might be moving to the Miami area, most likely Homestead, and don't want to go to any ghetto school considering the fact that my future will be ruined since I am at the top of my class. I am going to high school next year by the way. And sorry I'm asking a ton of questions on Miami, I don't want to make any mistakes.

  • Moving to Miami area. Advice?

    HI! I am 14 years old, in eighth grade, and helping my mother with the decision of moving to the Miami area or Lauderdale. In the 80s, after the revolution in her country, a ton of our family moved there, so I have quite a lot of family in that area. Lately, we have been having a ton of financial and family issues here in Boston, and we want to move to the Miami area. I am at the top of my class at one of the top schools here and really want to continue a good education and become a dentist (lol future planning already) or some type of medical professional. I have braces so I need health care or whatever lol.

    What would be a good/ decent area with access to acceptable schools that will allow me to obtain my goals and will be a somewhat nice and quiet areas with openings for jobs. I have family in Homestead, Kendall, and Coral Gables. Where would be a good area or at least decent with cheap prices because we are quite poor but live in a rich snobby area (which I really hate btw). I don't mind being with "ghetto" kids as some might say because a ton of my friends live in the "ghettos" and i can deal with them and take all ap/ honors classes. What would be an acceptable school and area and would a cheaper catholic/ charter/ private school be accessible and what is it? I'm going in a few weeks to look around, and we will most likely rent a townhouse/ apartment. It is just my me and my mother.

    Sorry this is long but veryyyy important; I've been researching for a while. Thanks!

    And I've looked at City Data, and I'm pretty poor but not dirt poor btw lol. And sorry about the category coudn't find a better one.

  • Help me! Question about ninth grade honors classes?

    Okay so I am in eighth grade and just got my course selection sheets. I checked off all honors classes for next year, so that means --if I get in-- I will be in honors Geometry, honors Spanish, honors Biology, honors History, and honors English. I also play piano and flute, and I am in band. I believe that my schools is slightly more difficult because we received such high reviews. My question is, do you think I will be able to handle all five? Here is some background information...

    In Algebra I for this year- I am in regular due to the fact that I didn't do so well in math last year. I occasionally have trouble, but my average for this quarter is around 95; although, it would've been an A+ if it wasn't for one of those 4 question quizzes... I heard they give about 45-60 mins a night.

    In Spanish I- I have a solid A+, and I am the best in my grade. I occasionally make silly mistakes one the quizzes, but I am Latino and already speak a lot; hence it will not be hard for me to take honors most likely.

    In Science- I had an A+ for the biology unit, but I didn't do AS well with the Earth Science and Physics unit because I am pretty good with bio. I also want to be a bio major because I want to study medicine or dentistry, but that is aside from the point. It also said honors Bio gave 45-60 mins. of homework a night. They also said they do 2 labs per 7 day cycle.

    In History- I usually have around an A+, but I get kind of bored with how easy it is; although, I heard that many people did horribly in History. This is the one I am quite worried about, and I heard they do not always have homework, but when they do it is a lot.

    For English- I am a pretty good writer, and people get my writing confused with an adult's... lol... I have an A- because I am not too good with projects. I am a pretty slow reader; although I usually understand it well. I occasionally have trouble with grammar, and I got 2nd in my spelling bee. Also, my teacher emailed me saying I should definitely take the test for honors English.

    I usually take a while to do my homework due to the fact that I am a perfectionist lol, and I am sometimes up until 12 studying and doing homework! Any advice from personal experience, and sorry this is really long.... thanks

  • Question about Catholic schools?

    Hi. I just found out I am going to be moving, and the schools in this area aren't so great. I really want to go to a private school, but most of them have deadline for applications that have already passed. So if I decided to go to a Catholic High School, are there deadlines for applications? If the deadline has already passed, how could I still go to this school? I am going to be a Freshman next year, and I have around a 4.0 or higher average. Thanks.

  • Help with an awful piano teacher??

    Ok so im not trying to be conceded. But i have a horrible piano teacher, well hes okay, and everyone tells me im amazing at piano. Ive been playing piano for less than two years and ppl who have been playing for 10 years think im even better than them. And Im already at like the sonata and chopin waltz level. But the problem is that my teacher is probably doing something right, yet he never even taught me to count properly, like i had no idea what it was for like months, and i had to teach myself to read notes. And i have a ton of trouble keeping a steady beat. So im read to change teachers. So do you think this is a good idea? or will i have to start all over again when i switch..? And should i find a special, gifted kind of teacher or just a regular teacher? and what qualities should i look for? and lastly it would e wicked awkward if i quit with tht teacher cuz i take lessons from a flute teacher for flute in the same office. and thankkssss ik this is wicked long.
