Bien, el objetivo de este hilo es ver si verdaderamente podríamos entendernos sin ningún problema entre hablantes de derivados del latín sin usar el inglés como lengua. La idea es que cada uno haga un comentario en su propio idioma y gente que hable otros idiomas conteste qué % del comentario ha logrado comprender.
El primero es obviamente este comentario ¿cuánto habéis logrado comprender de lo que yo he escrito?
I'm looking for something that has some entertainment value, is easy to watch and not just educational. I watch lots of educational/ learning videos, but want something extra to keep me engaged in Italian. Maybe something geared toward Italian grade schoolers? IDK, any suggestions are appreciated.
Edit: to be clear, I'm not wanting something for children per se, just that I thought I might be able to follow along easier without any subtitles. Thank you everyone for the suggestions so far!
My name is Eduardo and I am from South America. My first language is Spanish.
I was 12 years old when I had my first "contact" with the Italian language. I had just bought a Laura Pausini (😍) album that included just one song in Italian "La Mia Risposta".
I began to read the lyrics and other text in Italian included in this album and I was intrigued. This language seemed beautiful and actually it was my first contact with a foreign language. My English was too basic back then.
I took an old multi language dictionary we had at home and began to translate. I was amazed. There were similarities but also big differences. c'è means hay? It is not mia vita but la mia vita?
In a few months I was very fluent and in high school I always bragged that I spoke Italian even better than the local "Italians" (those people whose great great great great grandparents came from Italy, but keep calling themselves Italian).
Then everything changed when I was 18 because I had to... keep reading on reddit ➡
I love history and is partially why I am learning Italian. It is also what I watch the most on Youtube like Crash Course and The Great War. Are there any good Italian counterparts to them?
I am starting my third rewatch of the show as I write this post. Curious what pieces of jersey or Italian slang you all took from the series.
I am having trouble studying for the language without some proper structure.
I have been in in-person courses in the past which really helped me, however outside the classroom I find I am lacking structure.
For example, I have just been studying some vocab and conjugations without feeling I a making any progress.
Does anyone have a schedule or learnign structure they follow? I would say I am at a B1 level now.
So, I am in the proccess of making a total conversion mod, and I have run into some problems with languages. That hasnt been that much of a concern untill now, as I am really not willing to change every province name to go with its culture, but I still want to have proper names for the nations and cultures themselfs. So I need:
A name for a chinese colony in california, and a name for the culture of the people that live there
A name for a chinese colony in south america ( aroung the argentena-chile area) with a name for its people ( If it helps they start out independant)
A name for a chinese colony in Australia/New zealand, with a name for its people
A name for berber colonists in the carabean ( a golden circle kind of deal)
A name for a Malay colony in south america ( Peru-Bolevia area) and its people
A name for an Irish colony in North America and its people ( preferably originating from Gaelic)
A name for Irish colonists in south africa
A name for an Italian colony/colon... keep reading on reddit ➡
I am not good with languages. Even at school I had distractive tendancies and after 3 months of intense French learning before once moving abroad I learned a moderate amount of French, but mostly learned that while some people's minds absorb, understand and overcome the challenge of learning a new language - I am one of life's perpetual strugglers.
Despite this, I absolutely won't rest until I've spent at least a year of my life in Italy and I refuse to arrive with anything less than a semi-conversational level of Italian (I come in humble peace. I know that even a basic level takes time, work and dedication).
My vocabulary isn't terrible due to my lifelong love of Italian cinema, but as far as sentences and conjugation I'm basically starting from scratch. So my question is - how might you advise me to proceed so that I have a clear path to stick to and don't get discouraged when the going gets tough?
Through experiences of my own and the gathered experiences of others I've determin... keep reading on reddit ➡
Da 6 mesi sono Founder di Stadia e, stanco della tanta disinformazione che la stampa italiana sta facendo su questo servizio, ho deciso di cimentarmi in prima persona. In questo articolo ho raccolto un po’ i miei pensieri ed ho provato a raccontare cos’è e come funziona evidenziandone pregi e difetti, cosa è stata migliorata in questi 6 mesi e cosa ci aspetta nel futuro più o meno prossimo.
Aperto a qualsiasi spunto di discussione, vi auguro una buona lettura, se vi va! 😁
Looking to get some opinions. Or perhaps you think they can only call themselves "Demonym-original country", who knows, just wanna know.
In italian, the word "donations" is written "donazioni".
So, in every Italian clan, descriptions contain very often the phrase: "Please try to keep up with donations" that looks more like "Per favore state al passo con le do****oni".
Those 4 dots are just horrible.
[You could just stop to censor "nazi" if it's written in the word donazioni or donazione so that you could
still censor the word if it's used in other contests]
As an Italian, i personally find this weird, but many have told me that this is true. Also, why would the Italian dialects be languages but not the German, Spanish, and French ones?
I can understand game in fully english(devs native language) and never ask or care about brazilian portuguese translation.
I understand that translation work costs money and time so please add the option to change game language to ENGLISH at least.
I just cant understand what new or old items do because i dont understand NOTHING in italian on my "brazilian portuguese translated game"
If do a full job on other language translation inst possible, just enable a universal language ENGLISH on my game.
I love the game but its really bad for have fun when i cant even read what items do or how they work
I live in Finland and am interested in languages and cultures. I have mainly worked as a translator. I'm looking for a job now: https://www.linkedin.com/in/belov/
As an Italian native and French fluent speaker I am fairly suprised to see Romance languages such as Italian, French or Spanish being constantly rated as "the easiest" to learn for a native English speaker - sometimes apart from Afrikaans or Norwegian. Is this really the case in your experience? Maybe it all depends on what people mean with "difficult", but I can tell you that learning French at an advanced level was not easy at all for me, despite Italian and French having almost 90% of related vocabulary. I would have thought German would have been considered easier for English speaker: ok, there are cases etc. but there is an enormous amount of words with common roots, the verbal system is way less intimidating and -as a beginner student of German - I have already found quite a few expressions that you can translate word for word from English. And the accent: French or Portuguese accent easier than German? Hmm... What is your experience as a native English speaker?
I already know some beginner Italian. With being out of work until August, I have a ton of spare time on my hands and want to put it to good use. People who are at least conversational or proficient, what is your daily language learning routine?
I will soon be studying at a European university in which one is required to study a new language. My three options are Slovene, Italian, and Russian.
My first instinct is to learn Italian, because the culture interests me the most. However, my gut tells me Russian might be a more "relevant" language. Slovene seems like it might add lots of value, because there are fewer speakers who would compete for a similar multilingual (Slovene-German) job.
What are your thoughts?
I think that Netflix’s new Spanish/Italian/German and all the other content in other languages are helping create mainstream foreign language media consumptions that is going to help us learn languages a lot easier.
Ciao a tutti! :) sono un ragazzo italiano e ho appena creato un canale youtube dedicato a chi sta imparando l'italiano a livello intermedio e avanzato (o per i principianti più audaci!). Troverete video per fare pratica di ascolto, con sottotitoli sia in italiano che in inglese e glosse pop-up in cui spiego meglio alcune espressioni più importanti o difficili. Questo è il mio primo video! se vi piace, iscrivetevi al canale e mettete mi piace al video :)
Hello everybody! I'm Italian and I just created a YouTube channel for all intermediate and advanced learners of Italian (or for the most daring beginners!). On my channel, you'll find videos for listening practice, with subtitles both in English and Italian, and pop-up glosses to further explain some expressions I find particularly important or difficult. This is my first video! if you liked it, please subscribe to the channel and give the video a thumbs up :)

I always play games in English because I like the original voices, and it really bothers me that I can only play it in Italian
I´m a native Swedish guy that learned Italian for one year. I progressed quite good but the speaking part needs more and I know that speaking often and a lot with a native is the way to progress. I can offer Swedish in exchange but otherwise I´m just looking for someone that would like to help me and have a daily session of speaking Italian together with me. Just everyday stuff and help correcting me...
I currently have five 1 hour lessons on Italki every week but I want to go all in. If you think you could help just write to me. And off course, if someone would like the exchange for some Swedish language conversation - I´m happy to help.
I´m 42, living abroad and like things like football, cooking, travelling and to talk about almost every topic you can think off.
My love for the Italian language, the people and the country is endless. :)

Hope it can help! I, for one, struggle when it comes to deciding which language to learn ;D
Now excuse me but I need to go back being confused by Spanish tenses lol
