Italian Lesson #2 Grazie Mille – Thank You Very Much!

Posted on January 4th, 2010 by Sandy Florez

I was incredibly lucky to meet some of the brains behind operation International Student in person on December 7th.

Though I must admit that I was a bit nervous about this. I mean, what if they didn’t like me? What if the “brains” behind Hello 2 Ciao wasn’t as funny or charming in person and they changed their mind? What if this was all a brilliant Internet scam?

Turns out this wasn’t a huge conspiracy against me and Keith and Annemarie are actually real people who have made careers out of making international travel for students a viable opportunity. Sound cool? Yes, very cool. And much to my relief, Keith and Annemarie are the most down to earth grown ups to ever hand me any sort of money.

They also gave me this (which my children will see and never stop hearing about “when mommy was just 20 years old she won a contest…..”)

Grazie mille International Student,

Sandy

    How did the teller at the bank react when you showed up with that to cash in?

    haha, luckily I was given the real check before heading to the bank. I’d pay to see the teller’s face if I would have walked in with that!
