Interesting! I love Sicilian so much, but the flag is somewhat displeasing to me..

The flag is actually the Sicilian national flag. Or what we call it the Trinacria (means triangle).

Would it be an advantage for me to learn Italian first? (I know nothing about Sicilian and I assume this is a stupid question.)

I do not know really I learned Sicilian as a first language and I do not know Italian at all I would say you should just try our course and see if you like it.

Can't wait to try it out especially once it's completed, but I still have so much reviewing to do before moving onto anther language @_@ I really like how they all seem to be pretty short levels. Nothing's more intimidating than seeing something like 60 words per lvl.
