The Best Way To Learn To Speak Italian Is In Italy

Mar 18, 2008
Learning a language is fun, so they say. It broadens your horizons and can engulf you in a totally new environment that previously may have passed you by.

Reading books and listening to CD's is a very long drawn out learning process and even the most studious of people can find it hard going. Going to college to learn Italian is another option. If you've got the spare time and a local college that runs coarses in Italian you may choose to learn there. These coarses generally run for a couple of hours per week for the school year with breaks at term's end. College is a good way to learn but you still have to have the motivation to attend after a hard day at work.

So what is the alternative? Why not take a holiday in Italy specifically to learn the language? Italian is the language of love, and the country is one of magnificent beauty so why not encapsulate both aspects and take a learn the language holiday to Italy. The locations are varied, learning holidays are held all over the Italy so it's up to you to choose what else you'd like from your holiday other than learning the language.

Depending on the season you could go to Milan or Turin in the winter and do a little skiing, in the spring time go walking in the mountains or in the summer just go sight seeing. Italy has so much to offer the tourist apart from the obvious city locations. Why not learn in the beautiful old town of Alghero on the magnificent island of Sardinia. You can relax by the pool, go to the beach, walk in the mountains or visit the archaeological sites scattered around. All these activities can be fitted in around classroom time. The class room time generally also includes Italian culture lessons on such things as Opera, art and Italian history all of which will help you understand the make up of the language.

Generally class sizes are small and divided into ability levels. You should have no worries about being put into a class of fluent speakers if you can't utter a single word of the language. Usually students are accommodated in private homes, student apartments or hotels for as long as they are enrolled on the course. Evenings may include cultural trips and meals out including specialties from local producers. You would generally spend evenings with the rest of your study mates but if you'd rather not then there is no pressure to conform.

Learning can be daunting at any age but as an adult the fear of failure for some people is just too much but on a learning holiday everyone is in the same boat, everyone is there to learn and make the same mistakes, and hopefully have some laughs along the way. With so much to learn about and such a beautiful language to learn where else on earth would you want to learn the language of love other than the most beautiful and romantic country on earth?
