Frequently Asked Questions

How exciting you want to learn Italian! Here are three easy steps to get started. (1) Establish your goals. Why do you want to learn Italian? For travel, for work, for family and heritage reasons, or maybe you love all things Italian? Your learning goals will shape your learning path. (2) Start with the basics. Learn basic phrases that can help in everyday situations. Focus on three language components: grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation. (3) Take an Italian language course. Courses provide a structured approach to language learning, covering all aspects such as speaking, listening, reading, and writing in a systematic way. This helps ensure a comprehensive understanding of the language. In a structured course setting, language teachers also provide expert insights and explanations that might not be easily obtained from self-study.

The time it takes to learn Italian can vary widely from person to person, depending on various factors like your language learning background, the time you dedicate to studying, your learning environment, access to native speakers, and your motivation. According to the Foreign Service Institute of the U.S. Department of State, Italian is a Category I language, which means it’s one of the easier languages for English speakers to learn.

Our online Italian courses deliver a unique and effective learning experience, distinguished by three key advantages. (1) Flexibility and accessibility. You can learn at your own pace and on your own schedule, making it easier to fit Italian into your lifestyle.
