Ciao Barbara, Come stai? Solo per dirti che….ho superato l’esame! Sono contento perché la comprensione delle lettura e la prova orale sono buone. Il risultato della produzione di testi scritti non è una sorpresa perché non l’ho praticato abbastanza. Se l’esame era importante per me, sono ancora più contente perché adesso leggere in italiano o guardare un film non mi domandano un grande sforzo: ho solo il piacere. Sto lavorando a un album del mio soggiorno in Italia. Il mio soggiorno a Otranto rimarrà una magnifica esperienza. So dove posso prepare il CELI 5… Ti ringrazio per il tuo sostegno e ti auguro già delle buone feste! Un abbraccio    PS: adesso devo provare a rifare le orecchiette … Scopo 2017 🙂 Beniamino Benjamin Amiguet dalla Svizzera (Settembre 2016)
