Learn Italian: A Guide To Learning The Basics of A New Language
Why You Should Learn Italian Using This Guide
Italian might not rank among the top 10 most widely spoken languages in the world, partly because it is the official language of only a few sovereign states. Nonetheless, it remains highly popular as a second language, even among native English speakers. If you’ve always wondered why Italian needs to be learned as a second language, some of the reasons might surprise you.
Learning the Italian language is a must not only for those who are planning to visit countries where it is used on a broad scale. Among other reasons, it is also for those who want to:
. Improve language proficiency, particularly in Latin and English – Italian is the only major language spoken today that is closest to Latin. Experts say that learning Italian is the first step to learning the Latin language, and since nearly 60% of the English vocabulary comes from Latin, it’s one way of improving your proficiency in your native tongue.
. Advance further professionally – Since Italy is recognized as a world leader in fashion, culinary arts, furniture design, shipbuilding, robotics, and aerospace engineering to name a few industries, familiarity with the language can give you an edge when dealing with companies based in Italy, especially if you plan to work for or do business with them.
. Have a greater appreciation for the arts – Many of the greatest cinematic classics in the world were made by Italian filmmakers. Relying on subtitles is okay, but it is more satisfying when you fully understand the dialogue of what you’re watching without having to think about their respective translations.
