Italian (italiano) is a Romance language. Italian is by most measures, together with the Sardinian language, the closest language to Vulgar Latin of the Romance languages. Italian is an official language in Italy, Switzerland, San Marino, Vatican City and western Istria (in Slovenia and Croatia).

Italian is a major European language, being one of the official languages of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe and one of the working languages of the Council of Europe. It is the third most widely spoken first language in the European Union with 69 million native speakers (13% of the EU population) and it is spoken as a second language by 16 million EU citizens (3%).

How Long Does It Take to Master Italian? 

In order to learn the communication phrases used by tourists in daily situations a couple days in the language course will suffice. However, if you want to master written and spoken Italian more properly, you should allow one to three years. In order to achieve an academic level, you will need at least five to seven years.

Is It Possible to Master It Faster?

With time and motivation you can master Italian faster. The more time you dedicate to learning the language, the faster you will achieve the result. Daily communication in Italian will be a great advantage. And do not forget the media (radio and television), press, cultural events, music, and films in Italian.

Does Your Mother-Tongue Affect Your Mastery of Italian?

If you speak Portuguese or Spanish or one of these languages is your mother-tongue, you will learn Italian easier and faster. People proficient in Romance languages will see similarities with the Italian grammar system and words loaned from these languages.
