Why would you want to learn Italian online?
Because it’s easy, and
Because it’s fun!
If you live in an area with a large Italian population, or you live near a college or university, you probably have access to Italian classes in a traditional classroom. But not everyone can benefit from that kind of instruction, either because they just don’t learn well in a classroom setting, or the classes just don’t fit into the time they have available. And, of course, Italian classroom instruction isn’t even an option for people who don’t live close to a venue where Italian is taught.
Fortunately, the advent of the Internet has made quality Italian instruction possible for every student, no matter where they live—no matter who they are. You don’t need to have a lot of money. You don’t need to have a certain level of education in order to take the class.
Best of all, the opportunity to learn Italian online gives you a chance to do something you’d never be able to do in a traditional classroom—choose your learning method. Some people learn best by reading, and these people generally have a really difficult time with language classes that focus exclusively on listening to conversations. Other people learn best by listening, and these people tend to have a really difficult time with chasses that focus on reading, writing, and spelling their new language. If you sign up for Italian classes at your local university, you probably have little choice in learning method—you get whatever method the instructor chooses. With online instruction, though, you can select the learning method that works best for you.
But with online instruction, don’t you suffer from a lack of human interaction? No, not at a basic conversational/word recognition level. A simple program like Audible Italian teaches you simple words and phrases while providing both written transcripts and audio clips to ensure that you learn basic Italian thoroughly and well. With this beginner program, you won’t be trying to construct complicated sentences—you’ll be learning how to order from a menu, book a hotel room, or get to the airport. You can learn all the Italian you really need from the comfort of your own home—or better yet, on your mobile device, wherever you happen to be!
