Being a romance language, Italian is an easy language to learn, especially for English speakers. There are plenty of methods you can employ to learn Italian fluently. There are several language learning apps and podcasts that are good for people attempting to learn Italian as a hobby. There are also several certification courses that provide a degree or certificate upon completion. But the fastest way you can learn Italian is when you learn the language directly from a teacher. The teacher customizes the course based on your level of knowledge. Whether you're an adult or a child, you can learn the language faster when you get direct feedback from the teacher regularly. Learning by listening to audiobooks, movies or comedy shows can also increase the rate of increasing your vocabulary. Having flashcards or quizzes can also help in your learning journey. You can also learn Italian through tandem partners. Tandem learning is a technique where 2 people who know different languages teach each other the language they know. Having mentioned all the different methods, the fastest and most efficient method still remains to be learning directly from a tutor.

The teacher begins most of the beginner courses with an introduction to the Italian language. It is followed by basic grammar, word bank and conversational-style phrases that are likely to come up during real-life situations. Students will also be provided with various study materials that include lectures, worksheets, and mini projects. This is to ensure that students remain engaged and learn fast. Students also get feedback from native Italian speakers so that even their slightest mistakes are corrected. Several idiomatic expressions with "avere", verb conjugations are also covered by the teachers.
Start with a basic vocabulary of 2000-5000 Italian words. Follow it up with learning the basic grammar of the Italian language. Advanced grammar in Italian is unnecessarily complicated and even the native Italian speakers do not fully understand it. As a beginner, you may avoid that initially. You may then go ahead with listening to real-life conversations in Italian. Either through movies, TV shows, podcasts or cartoons. You may then learn basic greetings and introductions with an understanding of numbers and pronouns. Students will then learn gendered adjectives and nouns with the help of the tutor. Most helpful lessons in Italian are the ones that teach you the words you can use on a daily basis. For example, lessons about where you live, ordering and paying for food, getting a cab, understanding time, etc. Further ahead, you can learn the phrases required to talk about shopping, about a city, asking directions, recipes, etc. The teachers at ipassio will guide you through all these lessons keeping in mind your personal goals.
