Why Study Italian

ITALIAN IS RECOGNISED AS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SPOKEN LANGUAGES ON THE PLANET

Why learn Italian?  It’s a common question and we have the answer!

Traveling through Italy:

According to UNESCO (the United Nations cultural and educational agency) most of the world’s cultural heritage sites are in Italy. Immersion in a foreign culture opens up whole new avenues of self-exploration and personal growth. Knowing Italian helps you experience the essence of Italian culture.

Art and Culture:

Knowing Italian helps you fully appreciate the richness of Italian literature, theatre, opera, and films.

Communication skills:

Italian developed from Latin and an estimated 60 percent of the English vocabulary also comes from Latin. Learning a language like Italian encourages you to think about details of language usage. This can contribute to improving writing and speaking skills. Knowing Italian may help improve your English.

Self-fulfilment:

Learning Italian is a big accomplishment which brings with it great satisfaction and added confidence.

Intellectual stimulation:

Learning Italian enhances your skills in analysing, discussing, and categorising information and ideas.
