What do you learn in the Italian for Beginner Course (A1S1):
Students learn everyday expressions and very basic phrases, and use them in order to exchange information about personal details (such as where he/she lives, people he/she knows, things he/she has). Students can interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to help.

Is Italian Hard To Learn?
Actually, Italian is one of the easiest foreign languages for a native-English speaker to learn. At first, Italian may sound fast and completely indecipherable, but don’t be scared. It takes time to adapt to the sounds of any new language and Italian is no different. Learning Italian will give your brain a boost on the study and understanding of other Latin languages like Spanish or French.
