In this post I am going to write about the languages that I can Speak and how I learned them
Many people always ask me how I can speak five languages ( Italian, English, Norwegian, Swedish and Spanish)and how is it possible that I learn them so fast, I guess I am just good at languages and also the fact that I have lived in different countries is a reason for it.
When I was 18 years old I moved to Utrecht, in the Netherlands, where I studied at "Utrecht University school of economics" for one and a half year. During my stay there I did not learn Dutch ( the local language) but I was in contact with people from all over the world and my English improved a lot!! I think that if I have to choose what my main language is, I would say English because I mostly communicate in English with people around me and also my boyfriend and I mainly speak English to each other.
Then I moved to Stockholm when I was 20 and there I learned Swedish while I was working in a Kindergarden, being around children is the best way to learn a language, they will correct you, laugh at you when you say something wrong and just be totally honest! In that way I learned Swedish pretty quickly and I even took a test to have Swedish as a second language :)
In July I moved to Norway and I cannot say that I fluently speak Norwegian but Swedish and Norwegian are simlar and I am learning new words everyday and with my Swedish knowledge I can easily communicate with Norwegian people.
Last but not least language is Spanish. I studied Spanish in high school for 5 years and it is easy for Italians to learn it and speak it
Since I was a little girl I always thought that being able to speak several languages was so cool , nowaydays I am so proud of myself for having learned 5 languages on my own and at such a fast speed!
How many languages do you guys speak?
