One of my former student, who spend one year in Italy once wrote a letter to someone she really loves, and than posted this love letter on facebook
mi manchi tanto, ricordo i bei momenti passati con te, e spero di poterti incontrare presto. Perché non vieni a farmi visita negli Stati Uniti? Troveresti tanti amici anche qui.
I miss you so much, I remember the beautiful time we spent together, and I hope to see you soon. Why don’t you come to visit me in The States? I am sure you will find many friend here.
