Italian has not only increased my understanding of English better but it has given me a head start and better knowledge of the languages I took after it, i.e. Spanish and French. Italian has broadened my possibilities greatly with simple daily activities such as searching for something on the Internet or watching a movie. Overall, knowing only one language was like being in a cage, with all the world outside; Italian became my key to understanding that world outside a little better.
