Today I wanted to write something on why I think you should learn Italian as a foreign language. I don’t want to force anyone to learn Italian, I am not saying that you have to either! Just giving you some highlights and tips on how to do it best and some reasons to motivate those of you who have decided to learn Italian before reading this post!
Of course, if I won someone over with this post, that would be great 🙂
Many people around the world have Italian origins, maybe their grandparents were/are Italian so it would be a great way to reconnect with their own roots and learn more about Italian culture.
It can be useful for more practical reasons, for example you need to travel out to Italy and you need to understand Italian and also be able to communicate when you are there. It could be anything from a business travel to a holiday trip!
A very few people in the world know how to speak Italian comparing to the thousands and thousands of people speaking English, Spanish or Chinese. So, it is something that a very few people can do and that’s what makes it special!
Maybe you want to learn Italian simply because you like it! Therefore you should do things that make you happy!
Learning foreign languages in general helps you to get to know a different culture than yours, to understand better what is different form you and respect it. It also helps your brain to stay young because it stimulate the cognitive system.
Whatever might be your reasons to learn Italian, just go for it!
Tell me your story.
