Why learn Italian?
It might surprise you to learn that Italian is the 4th most studied language in the USA! Around 85 million people speak Italian, and it is an official language in several countries outside of Italy. Italian is an official language in Switzerland, Vatican City, San Marino and Istria. You can also hear Italian spoken in many countries where it is not an official language, like Albania and Malta.
Things to know before your trip to Italy:
