The Keys to Successfully Learn Italian

1. You are having fun.
Research shows that when something is fun--you're playing, interacting, laughing--you're more likely to remember it because your brain is engaged. This is why we based our entire language-learning program around game-playing. Plus, when you know something is fun, it will keep you coming back again and again.

2. You are not overwhelmed.
We know the thought of learning a new language is overwhelming. This is why every one of our games can be completed in 10 minutes or less. Imagine your language-learning goal is a sandwich. You wouldn't cram it all in your mouth at once, would you? No. Sure, you'll finish it all, but one bite at a time.

3. You can fit it into your life.
We know you have a million things to do, and we recognize language learning is probably not the first thing on your to-do list (no matter how much we wish it was). This is why we give you a ton of different ways to learn, from computer games and audio lessons for your iPod to written activities in the workbook and interactive fun on your TV!

WHY LEARN ITALIAN?

  • Italian culture has a major influence on art and cuisine across the globe.
  • Italy has more than 70 million visitors a year and is ranked as one of the top tourist destinations in the world.
  • Knowing basic Italian words and phrases before traveling to Italy or an Italian-speaking country will help you feel more at ease during your trip.
  • Italian is a top-rated romantic language and is one of the most studied foreign languages.

VISITING ITALY
Italy ranks among one of the top five most-visited countries in the world with more than 70 million people per year traveling there. It’s easy to understand why when you look at the numbers: 40,000 forts and castles, 95,000 monumental churches, 5,600 museums and archaeological sites, 4,000 beautiful gardens and much more! There’s so much to see, from the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the romantic canals in Venice to the Vatican and ancient ruins in Rome to the place many call the world’s most beautiful city, Florence.

Cuisine varies widely across Italy, so you will want to read the menu closely as you sample traditional food across the different regions. Don’t forget to taste Toscana wine, try a sip of Limoncello along the Amalfi Coast or indulge with homemade gelato in Rome (or pretty much anywhere in Italy!). No matter where you go, Italians are happy to answer your questions or point you to their favorite café. Don’t be afraid to ask for directions or strike up a conversation. You will always be welcomed as part of the family in Italy.

ITALIAN-SPEAKING COUNTRIES
There are more than 70 million Italian-speaking people worldwide. Of course, it is the main language in Italy. But Italian is also one of four official languages in Switzerland, and it is spoken in parts of Slovenia, Monaco, Croatia and even France, as well as in communities in places like the United States, Canada, Argentina and Brazil.

Here are some basic Italian phrases that you will use often:

  • Quanto costa questo? (How much does it cost?)
  • Dove posso trovare il bagno? (Where is the bathroom?)
  • A dopo. (See you later.)
