Welcome to the course
Welcome to this course on Italian for beginners! It’s very exciting to start learning something new, and especially a language, because you get to discover a new country, a new culture, and a new way of thinking.
We will start the course with some basic phrases, you will learn how to form a sentence and will get familiar with some essential grammar rules. Then gradually we will add more and more layers, and each of them will cover different aspects of the language. Think of it as a puzzle: at first there will be a lot of missing pieces but you can find them one by one and put them in their right places, and then at the end, you have the whole picture, and it all makes sense!
There are 15 modules, each of them is divided into sections, and the last section is always dedicated to practice. Practice is essential when learning a language. So you can do all kinds of exercises based on what you learned in that specific module, and you can practice speaking by answering a set of questions, recording yourself and submitting the file for feedback. If you complete each speaking task, you will notice that every time it will get easier and easier to speak in Italian. I know it will be scary at first but keep listening to the video and audio files throughout the course and you will improve your speaking skills immensely. The first step to fluency is being able to understand what you hear, and only after that you can start having a conversation, and then it’s a matter of time to get more confident, and to learn more, and to be able to communicate in another language.
Anyway, if you have any questions during the course, you can leave a comment below each lesson, or you can send me an email to [email protected].
I hope you will enjoy the course, you will be active and will complete all practice activities because you can only make progress if you keep practicing and improving. Step by step, day by day, I promise you that persistence pays off.
