9 Reasons To Learn Italian

Ciao! Oh, were you expecting Claire? She’s over on my blog, Lindsay Does Languages at the moment! Today you have me, Lindsay, guest blogging right here on Runaway Daydreamer. It’s ok, she knows I’m here.

So you already know my name is Lindsay and I blog, but did you know I also make YouTube videos about everything language? Well, today, I made a very special video to post here on Runaway Daydreamer. I run a video series called 9 Reasons… and so it seemed only right to make 9 Reasons To Learn Italian to post here today.

What’s that? Why should I learn Italian, you say? Well, reason number one…hey! I see what you’re trying to do here! You want to know why I think you should learn Italian? It’s all in the video…

Did you enjoy the video? Do you learn Italian and why?

I’d love to know your thoughts in the comments! Oh yes, and be sure to pop over to Lindsay Does Languages and say hi! Ciao!

    I like Lindsay’s approach to language learning: it is funny and engaging. I have appreciated this video, but I think that some reasons to learn Italian are weak or about stereotypes. I have tried to make my own short list.
    1) If you want to go beyond pasta, mafia and Berlusconi, learning Italian is a good way to get close to the real italian culture.
    2) Because of Manzoni, Leopardi, Pirandello and many others. The italian literature is second to none.
    3) In Italy there are some of the world’s most beautiful cities. Learning Italian is the best way to love them even more.
    4) Italian is a really rich and complex language. Learning its grammar is not the easiest thing to do, but I think it can be very satisfying.
    5) I agree with Lindsay: you can surprise people by telling them you are studying Italian. This thing makes you feel special and it is a great feeling.
