Italian Language

Updated: Nov 24, 2018

With various cultures being seen wherever we go, we can definitely see the beauty in learning a new language.

Italian shares many similarities with the English language. They both derive from the Latin roots and they both share the same sounds for some of the words. Also, the verb tenses bear a close resemblance to each other.

Learning Italian can be a feasible accomplishment for those who are familiar with the English language.

Italian is known as one of the "Romance" languages. You will notice the words bear a strong resemblance to English words. Words such as like cospicuo (conspicuous), tremendo (tremendous), orrendo (horrendous), and innocuo (innocuous) are just some adjectives that look similar between both languages.

Foods that are commonly eaten in the United States, such as pizza and pasta derive from Italy. When we go into Italian restaurants, we might not understand some of the terminology in the menu. Learning Italian can definitely reduce the need to ask what every single item on the menu means. This not only creates a learning experience, but it opens the chance to enjoy the food and culture more.

At the Atlanta Institute of Language, we work with our native-speaking staff to make sure they use a robust combination of teaching techniques. If you're ready to get started, please contact AIL at (404) 444-1532 or
