Learn Sicilian

Sicilianska är ett romerskt språk med många likheter i grammatik och ordförråd, vilket gör det lättare att ta in om du har lärt dig ett annat. De latin baserade romanska språken talas oftast i det före detta västra romerska riket. Men många talas nu också utanför Europa, inklusive portugisiska i Brasilien, spanska i Latinamerika och franska i många delar av Afrika.
