How to Learn Italian

Learning the Italian language is both fun and rewarding. If you are planning to move or have a vacation in Italy, learning the language will be very helpful to you. Some people get intimidated with foreigners but once they found out that you speak their native language, they will be comfortable speaking with you and awkward conversations will be gone. How to learn Italian? There are three steps to learn the Italian language and these are:

1. Mastering the Basics – Learning the basics is your first step to learn Italian. Here are some of them:
a. Learn the Alphabets – The easiest in mastering basic Italian. Beware of the pronunciation since some of the alphabets are pronounced differently like F (effe), H (acca), L (elle) etc.
b. Learn Basic Phrases – You can start learning some basic phrases like greetings like Buon giorno for hello, Arrivederci for goodbye, Grazie for thank you. You can find more phrases from Italian language books or the internet (which is the easiest and free of charge).
c. Learn Italian Vocabulary – You will need an Italian dictionary for this. The more vocabulary you know, the better. This will help you construct simple sentences in Italian.

2. Professional Learning – If mastering the basics aren’t enough for you and you are interested to be more fluent, you will need professional help. Enrolling in a language school that teaches Italian will help you a lot. You will learn how to effectively construct sentences from simple to complex. You will learn the correct pronunciation and enunciation of words. If there are things that aren’t clear to you, you can always ask the language instructor to understand.

3. Learning the Italian Culture – If you want to be fluent, you need to be Italian in all ways possible. Meaning, you need to learn the culture. This is also thought when you enroll in a language school since this is a part of their curriculum. After school, you can converse with your Italian friends or any Italian-speaking acquaintance (if you have any) to help you with your fluency.
