WHY STUDY ITALIAN?
Italian is one of the languages of western culture. What would the world be like without Italian music and opera, without the wonders of the Renaissance - Michelangelo, Botticelli, Leonardo, Brunelleschi – the writings of Dante, Petrarca and Boccaccio, which are the basis of much of our modern art and literature.
Italian is a romance language deriving from Latin. It is spoken principally in Europe: in Italy, San Marino, the Vatica and in the Italian part of Switzerland. There are, however, minorities who speak Italian in Monaco, France, Malta, Albania, Greece, Libya, Eritrea, Somalia, Slovenia and Croatia. There are many Italian immigrants in North America and in Australia. Italia is a very musical language and is not difficult to learn. It is melodic, easy to pronounce, it is written in the same way as it is pronounced and its vocal sound makes it ideal for singing. It is surprising how many words are similar to English, clearly deriving from Latin; for example, importante = important, università = university, interessante = interesting, etc., except that in Italian, the syllablization is much easier!
