I spent five years in Italian boarding schools and speak the language fluently.
Two years ago, at Myrtle Beach, a Class C pulled in next to me while I was sitting under my awning reading a book. The couple started setting up and I noticed he spoke to her in Italian and she spoke to him in German. I went back to reading my book and the next thing I knew he was standing beside me, asking in extremely broken and limited English where I had purchased my patio rug. He about fell out on the spot when I answered him in Italian. Turned out that Gino and Ula (Ursula) had been in the States about a month, had bought a used Class C, and were spending three months playing tourist. Gino spoke Italian and German and Ula spoke German, Italian and a bit of English. Without a toad, they would rent a car as needed. Needless to say, the next four days were absolutely great for all of us.
