This is my manifesto

Hi, I’m Silvia.

Looking back at my old language learner self, I see a shy, insecure, emotional girl who kept silent most of the times. Which is a very bad idea if your biggest dream is to speak that language.

But look at me right now: speaking and writing in English (not my native language), still making mistakes and doing it anyway.

At the end of the day, perfect grammar doesn’t really matter – wow, this has been hard to type for someone who is usually called a grammar-nazi! But it’s true, because the experience of being able to do with the language is like fuel.

Learning to speak Italian can be uplifting in so many ways and I’m here to show you how. Yes, you’ll still feel frustrated, but just see how much you could “do” with the language and you’ll be proud of each little step you make.

I have found a job abroad thanks to a foreign language – and you can too.
I have met amazing new friends thanks to a foreign language – and you can too.
I have started to create jewelry thanks to a foreign language – and you can too.
I have cultivated my yoga and nutrition obsessions thanks to a foreign language – and you can too.
I have traveled more thanks to a foreign language – and you can too.

What will you do with Italian?
Write your own list.
Start now.
Enjoy the ride.
