The Italian way for a “happy hour”

The Italian way for a “happy hour” | Holiday in Pisa | Scoop.it
While completing my university studies in Italy, part-time I used to pour spirits and soft drinks in a glass – most of the times full of ice – blend the content by stirring and then serve it on a counter bar mat.

Why learn Italian?

Why learn Italian? | Holiday in Pisa | Scoop.it

Italian remains the fifth most widely-taught language in the world. So why are we all in love with la bella lingua?

In my case, the first time I ever heard Italian would have been sitting on a school bench, listening to these ethereal, enchanting words: allegro, legato, staccato, piano. Italian is the language of music.

[…] Kristy, who trained as an opera singer, believes “most opera singers will need to learn Italian,”

Many people try an Italian course before going on holiday there, since the country is consistently one of the world’s top tourist destinations and has been since the days of the eighteenth-century Grand Tour, a rite of passage for privileged young men.

Italian is generally rated as relatively easy to learn for English speakers. Since Italian is a phonetic language, with the majority of words pronounced as they are written, reading and spelling are more straightforward. In fact, recent research shows that dyslexia is less commonly diagnosed in Italy than in France or Britain, as the written language presents fewer illogicalities in spelling.

Italy is also particularly welcoming to those from abroad wishing to learn more about its culture and language, with several universities dedicated entirely to stranieri or foreigners.

I Learned to Speak Four Languages in a Few Years: Here's How

I Learned to Speak Four Languages in a Few Years: Here's How | Holiday in Pisa | Scoop.it

Gabriel Wyner was tasked with learning four languages in the past few years for his career as an opera singer, and in the process landed on "a pretty damn good method for language learning that you can do in limited amounts of spare time." Here's the four-step method that you can use, too (and you don't have to invest hundreds in a language course like Rosetta Stone).

What language is spoken in Italy? Are you sure it is Italian? Pt. 1

What language is spoken in Italy? Are you sure it is Italian? Pt. 1 | Holiday in Pisa | Scoop.it

The dialects which are still in use are: the Franco-Provençal, located in the North-West sector of Italy, mainly in Valle d’Aosta, Piemont and in the French Valleys. The Occitan is spoken in the Western part of Piemont and in the homonym French region. The Tyrolean is a Germanic language, spoken in Trentino-Alto-Adige as well known as Südtirol. The Ladin-Friuli and the Slovenian, are mainly diffused on the East side of the boot, to the borders with Slovenia and they show a huge number of influences from Slavic languages. The Venetian language, which is an “autonom” linguistic group, is well known for its beautiful sounds, complexity and its use: here young people still use it daily. It is spoken in the whole region of Veneto and in Trieste’s area. The Galloitalic regroups the area of Emilia, Romagna, Liguria and Lombardy. Those are the areas which have got more influence from the southern Celtic and barbarian populations.

The Tuscan, is known for being the “Italian language’s father”, in fact, starting from the Tuscan Vulgar dialect, Dante Alighieri gave life to his Divine Comedy, which has been adopted as the first epic poem wrote in Italian. The Median language, for instance is regrouping all the dialects spoken in the center of the peninsula from the coasts of Rome on the Tirrenian side to the Adriatic bay.
