The Italian language stems directly from Latin, just like other Romance languages like Spanish, Catalan, Portuguese, French, Romanian and other minority languages (Occitan, Provençal, Galician, Ladin and Friulan).
The Italian language has developed through a long and gradual process, which began after the Fall of the Roman Empire in the 5th century.
Up until this moment, Latin had spread and had been imposed across the Empire as the ‘madre franca’, or the shared language.
After the fall of the Empire, vernacular and local forms of the language had an important role in society and the everyday life of the population.
However, for several centuries, and especially during the Middle Ages, Latin was the dominant cultural language, used throughout European Universities and in all the official acts and procedures of the Church.
FEW good reasons to learn a new language
TO BE OR NOT TO BE (BILINGUAL)?
“Worthy of the “golden patience” trophy for good humor and creativity when facing student’s difficulties. Very competent in teaching, my teacher brings the beauty and the richness of the French language through historical and current themes (he is interested in everything!) Focused on the interest of the student and on activities that encourage to understand not only the rules of the language and the meaning of the words, but also the culture of which they are part. Learning the French language gave me a new perspective of the world and France.”
