About the Italian Language

Italian is a Romance language spoken by about 63 million people, primarily in Italy. In Switzerland, Italian is one of four official languages. It is also the official language of San Marino and Vatican City. Standard Italian, adopted by the state after the unification of Italy, is based on Tuscan dialect and is somewhat intermediate between Italo-Dalmatian languages of the South and Northern Italian dialects of the North.

Unlike most other Romance languages, Italian has retained the contrast between short and long consonants which existed in Latin. As in most Romance languages, stress is distinctive. Of the Romance languages, Italian is considered to be one of the closest resembling Latin in terms of vocabulary, though Romanian most closely preserves the noun declension system of Classical Latin, and Spanish the verb conjugation system , while Sardinian is the most conservative in terms of phonology.

In Italy, all Romance languages spoken as the vernacular in Italy, other than standard Italian and other unrelated, non-Italian languages, are termed "Italian dialects". Many Italian dialects are, in fact, historical languages in their own right. These include recognized language groups such as Friulian, Neapolitan, Sardinian, Sicilian, Venetian, and others, and regional variants of these languages such as Calabrian. Though the division between dialect and language has been used by scholars (such as by Francesco Bruni) to distinguish between the languages that made up the Italian koine, and those which had very little or no part in it, such as Albanian, Greek, German, Ladin, and Occitan, which are still spoken by minorities.

Dialects are generally not used for general mass communication and are usually limited to native speakers in informal contexts. In the past, speaking in dialect was often deprecated as a sign of poor education. Younger generations, especially those under 35 (though it may vary in different areas), speak almost exclusively standard Italian in all situations, usually with local accents and idioms. Regional differences can be recognized by various factors: the openness of vowels, the length of the consonants, and influence of the local dialect (for example, annà replaces andare in the area of Rome for the infinitive "to go").

 


The Pimsleur Language Learning System  is an sounds speech learning process put together by Dr Paul Pimsluer that emphasizes proactive participation over rote memory. Inside the teaching, the audience is repeating words and phrases supplied by native presenters and constructs new content by inference. As new expressions are introduced, the listener is inspired to recall earlier words and phrases. The requests for any given word or phrase are bit by bit positioned out in ever-increasing time periods. Between 1963 and Nineteen Seventy One, Dr Paul Pimsleur created Greek, French, Spanish, German, and Twi workshops while schooling at the University of California, Los Angeles. The Pimsleur lanuage learning system focuses on abilities in conversing, as well as technique in reading. These 2 aspects are refined thru thirty-minute sessions, which are carried out until a score of a minimum of eighty% appreciation is accomplished before going ahead to the subsequent session. Through the course of the courses, students listen closely to native people of the targeted language as they communicate key phrases in equally the foreign language, and additionally the student’s significant language. At calibrated intervals, individuals are inspired to reproduce a key phrase immediately following being attentive to the presenter. As the beginner advances through the course, the interval increases, as does the magnitude of the vocabulary. The activities are made up of 30-minute daily training sessions and smaller reviewing modules
