Learn Italian online

Man of Roma

Man of Roma writes a thoughtful blog. And he writes it very well, in my not so humble (see previous post) opinion. I wish I could write in Italian as well as he writes in English. One day, one day.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

Moving back to Man of Roma, he should be regarded as a shining example of just how well an Italian, or any other nationality for that matter, can learn another language.

Umberto Bossi is the leader of Italy’s Lega Nord – Northern League political party and a key coalition ally of Italy’s current premier Silvio Berlusconi. Unless you have just returned from a stay on an isolated desert island you will know that Silvio Berlusconi is in a spot of bother at the moment in that his government now has an uncertain majority.

This unstable majority is bugging Umberto Bossi, who, in turn, was himself being bugged according to recent reports in Italy’s press.

Italians and language learning.

I’ve heard this comment many times from my Italian students. It basically goes ‘Italians are not very good at/incapable of learning other languages’. Well, I
