Benefits of the Italian course

Italian is a Romance language that evolved from the Vulgar Latin of the Roman Empire. About 85 million people speak Italian and approximately 30 percent of words in the English language are of Latin origin, since the Italian language remains the most closely associated with Latin. Italian is an official language in Italy, Switzerland (Ticino and the Grisons), San Marino, and Vatican City. It has an official minority status in western Istria (Croatia and Slovenia). In addition, Italian is also spoken by large immigrant and expatriate communities in the Americas and Australia.


Italian is the main working language of the Holy See, serving as the lingua franca (common language) in the Roman Catholic hierarchy as well as the official language of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta. Italian is known as the language of music because of its use in musical terminology and opera; numerous Italian words referring to music have become international terms taken into various languages worldwide.


A huge benefit of learning Italian is to be able to communicate with Italians and learning about their culture. Examples are Italy’s history, art, music, literature, architecture, landscapes, food and wine. Lastly, Italy is the nation with the most UNESCO Heritage sites, so it is a great tourist destination!
