Sicilian dialect

Hi everyone, I've just returned from bella Sicilia, visiting family.  I have a zio that just loves to chat about the old days but unfortunately I can't understand his dialect.  Is there anyone here (teacher! tutor or someone learning English) that lives in Sicilia or grew up speaking the dialect??  I would love to learn this dialect to be able to talk with him, he has so much to say and I pick up so little.  

grazie Mille :-)

(my relatives live in the province of Trapani, if that helps with Sicilian dialects)

HI! I'm sicilian and I want to improve my english skills :D From which part of Sicily is your uncle from? I ask this because dialects can be very different from each other :) Let me know, maybe we can chat sometimes!
