When I was at high school, I mainly got inspired by teachers who taught me science subjects, and I did not look too much into foreign languages. I therefore found it more difficult to learn a new language. I studied a lot of grammar rules of English, my first foreign language at school, by heart without reaching the heart of the language. One day, I read somewhere this Czech proverb: “You live a new life for every language you speak. If you know only one language, you live only once.” And that changed my life forever. I started to learn English and then other languages with a different approach and with curiosity about the way people express ideas and thoughts in their language and culture. In this way, studying a foreign language is no longer a boring subject with thousands of rules of grammar, but it is a gateway to explore the culture of another country.
As I learn a language, my life gets more excited with new culture, friends, and lifestyle in the countries that I visit. Among them, I found myself very fortunate to study and live in a beautiful country in the middle of the Mediterranean sea, Italy. That is also the place where I found many similarities in culture with my homeland, Vietnam. In this blog, I would like to bring you to a journey of learning these two languages, Vietnamese and Italian, in the view of their cultures, living styles and local gastronomy. Every single day living here, there are always new things for me to learn and to improve, and not just about languages. That is also the reason why we name this site SempreLearn. To spread our message: “Always learn new things everyday!”
