    Italian Slang

    Fluent City
    How many of us speak in perfect grammatical sentences? Very few. So why would you speak that way with Italians? For starters, it may come off as inaudible. Secondly, if people in English aren't using the word "whom," does it make sense that Italians would use the equivalent? Fluent City will teach you the language heard on the streets and in the media -- essentially what is used in everyday life. Stop sounding like an academic American and experience the Italian point-of-view, in a language they understand.
