Si voglie andare alle XX Giochi Olimpici Invernale a Torino in 2006, lei forse lo potere. Andate a e entrate negli [sweepstakes}.

I think 2nd-person formal (side question: would you prefer using formal or familiar?) "you want" is "vuoli". Volere is one of those crazy modal irregular verbs. I *think* it's: voglio (I want), vuoli (you want, familiar), vuole (he, she, it, you formal want), vogliamo (we want), volete (you plural want), vogliono (they want). But let me know if that doesn't jive.

I'm still learning the reflexive verbs, so I'm not sure of lo potere...I think I'd probably say (for "maybe you can") as forse Lei puo fare. I also think in written Italian, if you're using the formal "you", the "Lei" gets capitalized to distinguish from "she" (lei).

Ho voluto apprendere Italiano per un viaggio in Italia abbiamo fatto in Venti-zero-quattro. É stato un viaggio bennissimo!

Grazie per il disionario - e molto interressante!

{I wanted to learn Italian for a trip to Italy we took in 2004. It was the best trip!
Thanks for the dictionary - it's very interesting!}
