    @@Merry19ss that's true and that was also because of government reasons in ancient times the English didn't want their past kingdoms to see them as a threat so they had to cover up alot before they became powerful enough to not care... Also Greek and Latin are directly related ha and there are still many similarities English has alot of the related roots to many different branches of the languages but still mostly latin today. Also ages where Normans took them over and changed them a bit but Even the original natives of Barvaria were latin. Barvaria itself is a latin word. And to think the holy Roman empire and the bloodline of Charlemagne himself is in England It's very interesting. I'm latin by the way not English but I speak English.

    Actually is funny the fact Spanish people think that adding an “i” at the end of every word sounds Italian and Italian people just the opposite, adding an “s” is Spanish. Because as a Spanish guy and Italian speaker, the formation of plural words in Spanish and Italian is with the “s” and the “i” ending, respectively.

    Being born bilingual, since my mother is from Spain and my father from Italy, and being a teacher of Spanish in Italy, I always have to warn my students not to trust the fact that Spanish seems easy to them, just because they understand it. Understanding is one thing, being able to speak it is another one. The fact that Italians can understand Spanish with a certain level of ease is a trap, because they think they have a level that they probably don't really have.

    It’s amazing how speaking 1 romance language gives you bonus access to understand other “sister” languages. As a native Spanish speaker, I can understand about 90% of Brazilian Portuguese and about 70% standard Italian. (when watching a normal tv show - if the person speaks slower with less slang, I understand a lot more naturally)Off course, writing and speaking them is a different story since I’ve never taken classes, but I could have a general understanding when I read (by context). Spanish also gives me access to understand a bit of Catalan and Ladino. I also speak French, but I found it difficult at the beginning and not so similar as 🇪🇸🇧🇷

    As a Japanese, I cannot imagine how it feels to listen to foreign language and understand the meaning. I once studied Korean and it was somewhat similar to Japanese in grammar but still it was difficult to understand what people speaking. We use Chinese characters so I could imagine meaning of written words in Chinese, but even the same characters are used, meanings can be different. For example, a word “手紙” consists of 手=hand and 紙=paper. In Japanese, it means letter. In Chinese, it’s toilet paper. (I don’t know Chinese so this is just what I heard and don’t know if it’s correct). Also, 飯店 means hotel in Chinese, but to me, it looks like restaurant because 飯 indicates meal and 店 indicates shop.

    Imagine a place or region in Japan where they speak a local dialect. Further imagine a person from there that really tries to speak it and use every word and expression he or she can that are different from standard Japanese. And you are listening to it and get a feeling that you understand a lot but perhaps not everything. That experience would be similar, although not identical.

    @@SharksRevenge the biggest differences between Portuguese of Brasil and Portuguese of Portugal are a few grammar preferences like te amo (I love you) instead amo-te and the pronunciation in Portuguese of Brasil that is overall more open so it's more easy to understand however it also have more slangue so even if you understand the writing don't mean that you will understand a full conversation. Portuguese from Portugal is usually considered to look like a Slavic language however that is only cuz the media is centered in Lisbon that have a very closed accent but in Portugal you also can find a sing songy accents like in Braga or Alentejo or even in more Northern and interior Portugal far away from the cities were the Lisbon accent predominate. You also have the micalense accent from azores that sound like French. It's a matter from preference the Brazilian Portuguese is more spoken and it's more easy to learn with more sources of study while Portuguese of Portugal is more closed depending of the accent that you are listening, if you speak Portuguese of Brasil we problaly we would understand you but you probably couldn't understand us since I probably would have a closer accent. Northern Portuguese accents are also more closer to the Spanish accents so if you now Spanish would be easier for example they switch the v by the b, have the rolled R just like Spanish and open the vowels like Brazilian Portuguese with a sing songy accent

    I'm an American who is conversationally fluent in Spanish. I visited Italy this year on vacation, and was surprised at how much I understood Italian. I agree with the Italian speaker at the beginning, who said that Italians think they just add "s" onto the ends of words for Spanish. I found myself removing "s" a lot from the endings of Spanish verbs (after looking up some basic Italian verb conjugation in a dictionary), and I was being understood. It was wild and crazy how much Italian I could understand, and how much Italian speakers could understand what I was saying.

    My main language is Spanish, and when I'm talking to someone whose main language is rather similar to mine (Portuguese & Italian) I find it extremely weird to have a conversation in English. Like our languages come from Latin and therefore have a lot in common, so why in the world shall we speak an ""alien"" language? (I do know why, but I think you get what I'm trying to say). I've been in Brazil several times, and most people understand what I say to them in Spanish (I also do gimmick while at it, lol) and I mostly get what they say in Portuguese too, especially when reading stuff. And today although I still don't speak Portuguese I do mix some of their words in my Spanish to make it even easier for them to understand. But of course this is my personal case, I don't expect everyone will have the same experience.

    I am Spanish living in Munich, and here I have several Italian friends. We usually communicate n English with each other. When we don't know a word we say it in our language and 90% of the time, the other one understands it. Also, we realized that for Italians is easier to understand Spanish than for Spanish to understand Italian. We think that the reason is that Italians very often speak more than one language, the national language (Italian) and the local one while a lot of Spanish (like me) speak just one. So they can understand a sentence or a concept because it is similar to Italian or because it is similar to their local language (or both). For example, the Spanish girl in the video can understand part of the second sentence because she can speak Catalan (2:16), but more than half of the Spanish population speaks no local language.

    Italian people understand better Spanish than viceversa. Well, I'm not sure, but Italians have 2 advantages: 1. Italian is the most similar language to Latin and 2. Almost all Italians speak or understand - at least - two Romance languages, Italian and one of the dozens of local languages. For example, "to work" in Italian is "lavorare" but in some Italian regions is "travagliare" (the same origin and very similar to the Spanish trabajar). "Sit down" in Italian is "seder" but in Veneto is "sentar" the same of Spanish.

    This reminds me of when my parents speak to my in-laws. One side is speaking Italian and the other side is speaking Spanish. Some confusion here and there, but otherwise understand each other well enough to get by with each speaking their native language. Its always funny when the Italian side tries to fit in a modified Italian word that they think are Spanish words, or an Italian word with some kind of Spanish sound to it. To me, its sounds like Catalan is sort of a mix of both (Italian/Spanish) languages, and maybe with some French too.

    For the linguistics geeks: the use of "s" in Spanish vs "e/i" in Italian for plurals is thanks to something called the La Spezia/Rimini Line. Romance languages northwest of this line, like French, Occitan, Catalan, Portuguese, Spanish, and certain north Italian regional languages tend to use "s" for their plurals, while Romance languages southeast of the line, like standard Italian, Romanian, and the now-extinct Dalmatian, used "e/i" for their plurals.

I was completely fluent in Italian having worked in Turin (Torino) 🇮🇹 for four years in the late ‘90s. Now though, having lived in Guadalajara 🇲🇽 for almost four years, speaking Spanish every day at work and at home has messed up my Italian. I don’t have my difficulty understanding it, but I’m going back to classes, because when I want to speak it, Spanish comes out of my mouth first and I really have to concentrate. Thankfully, learning Spanish hasn’t messed up my other languages - I am a French teacher here. I guess Spanish and Italian are just too closely related to each other when you are a native English speaker.

The dumb thing is that we study that language for only those three years unless you choose a linguistic high school, therefore many people forget the language. But with spanish, since it is so similar to italian and pretty easy for us to learn, many people can speak it again with little effort even after years.

    I am American and my primary language is English, but I lived in Peru for ten years from age 5 through 15 when my dad worked there, so I grew up speaking fluent Peruvian Spanish as my second language. I can generally watch KZread videos where the narrator is speaking Italian and can follow most of what is being said. Surprisingly, Portuguese is much harder to understand than Italian, even though Portugal is right next door to Spain, and one would think the languages would be more similar. French is very hard for me to understand - I probably am not understanding one word in ten, but I can read French and get perhaps 20 - 25% of what is printed. I still understand Spanish fairly well (except for Cuban and Dominican Republic speakers, who have a tough accent to follow) but we came back to the US when I was 15 and I haven't spoken Spanish in over 50 years since, so I sound like a Gringo now. I know what Spanish is supposed to sound like, but it doesn't come out of my mouth like that anymore.

There are words that are exactly the same but mean something different . Like the word soft in Spanish is suave but in Italian they say mórbido and in Spanish that means deadly . Or salire in Italian means or go up but in Spanish it means to go out . Or largo in Spanish means long but in Italian largo means wide , so examples like these can cause some confusion .🤷🏻‍♂️
