The Bradley's are really an amazing family when you think about it, I wonder how many languages they know combined.
Agree, I don't know if Michael had any Italian prior to going to Verona but his Italian is pretty impressive.
Especially that he already understands a lot of Roman dialect (which is about 1000X harder than proper Italian) when I see him being asked questions. I was in Rome for years before I could. I still can't understand half of NY/old Sicilian and/or Napolitano Italian (but neither can any of my Italian friends here).
The Scottish stereotype of being frugal kind of made me think for a second but then I thought of all those English jokes like
"how did the scots invent copper wire"
"by fighting over a penny"
They probably teach those in English schools along with chiding students for using "incorrect" American idiom.
