Someone may wonder why I use Italian words in my blog.
Italian inspires me. I love how it sounds and the energy of it.
I am living in a student flat and in order to keep my contract I have to continue studying at the university. When I went through the list of the available courses I was negotiating with myself what to choose: something useful or something not very useful. Statistics or Italian? Ok, I did apply for a basic Italian course before the deadline in October last year. In December I saw a movie “Eat, Pray, Love” on the shelf at the grocery store. I got this movie. Loved it. And guess what: the main character Liz Gilbert is fascinated by the Italian language and goes to Italy to feel the taste of life.
There is something in it…
There are many words that I like. I like them because of what they mean. In Italian you feel what they mean.
Felicita – happiness
Scoprire – discover
Salute – health
Valore – value
Gentile – kind
Semplice – simple
Gelato – ice-cream
What words do you like and in what languages?
