Learning Napulitano in 90 Days

This week marks the end of my 90 day challenge to learn enough Neapolitan to hold a conversation with a native speaker and make a video. I had already done a previous 90 day challenge to learn Sicilian so I was excited to find another tutor who could teach me Neapolitan on skype.

There were very little resources and we had to create our own verb lists from scratch. However, my knowledge of Italian meant that I was able to learn to speak quite quickly with very few resources.

I also learned how to write in Neapolitan and you can read another blog post I wrote here in both Neapolitan and English about a family event with my little niece (an aspiring polyglot!).

I plan to continue my studies in both Neapolitan and Sicilian and I will be giving a presentation about the regional languages at LangFest language festival in Montreal in August. If you can come, be sure to enter the discount code MAUREEN for 25% off the price.

Here is my video speaking in Napulitano after learning for 90 days.

    How do you keep these closely related languages straight in your brain?

      I’m not sure, I think just lots of speaking practice solves it. I had already been fluent in Italian for several years before I started Napulitano and Sicilian.
