A short history of the Italian language
Italian is a romance language, like Spanish and French. It is spoken by around 60 million people in Italy. It is the official language of Italy and also one of the four official languages of Switzerland. Italian can also be heard in Malta, the Vatican State, and Corsica. The old Italian colonies of Eritrea and Libya have some Italian speakers, but the language for both these places is now in decline. Italian is the second most spoken language in Argentina.
English contains many Italian words and some are easy to see and hear, even though they are spelt and pronounced slightly differently.
Italian is of Latin origin and its written form first appeared in the 10th century. Writers like Dante and Boccaccio used the Tuscan dialect of Italian and after the 16th century, Latin use began to diminish. There are dialects from almost every Italian region and some are different from standard Italian, like for instance, Sicilian. Venetian also has words that are different from the Italian standard.
Italian uses a formal and an informal way of speaking to people, the formal is used to speak to officialdom, or strangers and the informal is used with family and friends.
