1     "Buon giorno, Signora," the postman said. "You have a lot of mail today."
2     "Thank you for bringing it to me," Tracy's mother said.
3     She went down the steps. She walked to the mailbox. She took out all the mail and went back inside.
4     "Mom, the postman talks funny," Tracy said. "He called you ‘signora,' and what does ‘buon giorno' mean?"
5     "No," Tracy's mother said. "He does not talk funny. He speaks English and Italian. He came here many years ago. He was born in Milan, Italy."
6     "Then he is not an American. He is Italian," Tracy said.
7     "He is Italian," his mother said. "But he is American, too. He became a citizen ten years ago."
8     "What was it like in Milan?" Tracy asked.
9     "Why don't you go find out?" his mother said. "You can use your computer. You can read some books."
10     Tracy nodded. He went to his desk and turned on his computer. He read about Italy. He read about Milan. He learned many things. He made a list.

1. Milan is the biggest city in northern Italy.
2. There are many famous museums in Milan.

11     After reading for almost two hours, Tracy turned off his computer.
