Why would you want to learn Latin?
Far from being a dead language, Latin can be an exciting language to learn. If you are Italian, French, Spanish or Portuguese, you may want to learn Latin to plunge into the roots of your language. If you are into movies such as "Gladiator", you may want to learn Latin to verify its historical accuracy by delving into Latin texts about ancient Romanan professional fighters. Or, if you are into philosophy, you may want to learn Latin to read Cicero's works in their original version. In all these three cases, Latin would be the key to success! What are you waiting to embark on this virtual journey to ancient Rome with me?
Why would you want to learn Italian?
There are plenty of reasons why you may well wish to learn my beautiful language. You may want to learn Italian simply because you cannot resist the temptation of diving into my country's culture and historical art pieces. If you are a real gourmet, you may need Italian to order food at an Italian restaurant and sound like an Italian when pronouncing the word "fettuccine ai frutti di mare". If you are passionate about movies, you may want to know Italian to savor Benigni's accent in "La Vita è Bella", while also getting a taste of Italian sense of humor. In all these three cases, knowing Italian would be a fantastic asset for you! What are you waiting? Embark on this virtual journey to Italy with me!
Why would you want to learn French?
French is a fascinating language! If you are into wine, you may want to learn French to be able to order a glass of champagne with no hesitation and a quasi perfect French accent or intonation. If you are into arts, you may want to learn French to ask to a painter from Montmartre to make your portrait. Alternatively, if you are a shopaholic - like me - you may want to learn French to ask the price of that unique addicting piece of clothing you found in a Parisian boutique. If all these three cases, French would be the key to your success! What are you waiting to embark on this virtual journey to France with me?
