So, I’ve started learning Italian. Without any practical purpose or reason, just for the sake of learning. Though everything is not that simple. Someone might think, ‘Why is she going to learn a new language if there is so much to learn in English for her?’
It’s said that to accomplish something you should make a promise to your fellow bloggers on your blog. It will make you believe in yourself and feel responsible for the commitment you’ve made.
It’s not the case for me. I can promise anything here but no one external force can make me do something if I don’t feel like doing it. To add a bit of drama I would be able to come up with a punishment system for breaking the promise. Anyway, it won’t work for me.
It’s hard to explain why I love Italian more than any other languages (if the words ‘explain’ and ‘love’ can ever be stored in the same row). The very sound of Italian speech makes my heart fly. Even if I will never go to Italy. Even if the only person I practise my Italian with will be a microphone of online language learning site. Even if it takes me a year to finish a standard travel course for beginners, I will try to learn.
Since I visited our local music theatre as a child I had a dream to take a trip to the Italian opera. To be honest, I don’t understand a single word in Russian operas let alone ones that are in foreign languages. But somehow they have a magical influence on me. Maybe my intention to learn Italian and my dream about the opera will be connected someday and I will say the phrase ‘Quanto costano i biglietti per l’opera?’ not in front of the mirror.
