THE 3 GOLD PRINCIPLES IF YOU'RE LEARNING ITALIAN


When using the resources of this website, but also when learning languages in general, we feel it’s very important to keep in mind the following principles:

  • Don’t try to understand every single word! Sometimes we waste too much energy looking into the details when what really matters is the bigger picture
  • Learn to be comfortable when you don’t understand! It’s ok if you don’t understand – remind yourself you are learning
  • Be resilient! At the beginning of a new language, the learning progress will be exponential. After a while, your progress will look more like a plateau. Just carry on! You will keep learning without knowing




WHO IS THE MEMBERSHIP FOR?


At the moment, we recommend membership if you are learning Italian as you’ll gain access to extra content to support your learning. Click here to know more.

However, we are looking into creating a new membership for those who can already speak Italian. If you have any suggestions or ideas you’d like to share, please get in touch by clicking here.
