Language School

Una lingua nuova è quasi una vita nuova, grammatica e sintassi ti rifondono,

scendi in un'altra logica e un altro sentimento

A new language is like a new life, grammar and syntax remake you

from the ground up, and you descend into a different logic and feeling.

                                                                                        Domenico Starnone, as cited in Lahiri (2015)
