Learn Italian – Free Italian Lessons

If you are reading this page, it means you decided to learn Italian and are looking for free Italian lessons. You are in the right place!

With its 60 million people, Italy is a smallish country. However, it greatly influenced history throughout the centuries and is considered one of the pillars of Western civilization.

Italy may not be the wealthiest country now, but it is one of the most appreciated tourist destinations worldwide because of its attractions, landscapes, fascinating culture and good-hearted people.

Why learn Italian?

Italian is easy, for one. It is a Romance language, so it shares traits with some other commonly studied languages such as French and Spanish.

It doesn’t have a case system, making it way easier to learn than, say, German. Its pronunciation is straightforward because Italian spelling is almost always phonetic, so words are often pronounced as they are written.

Many English terms we use nowadays, such as author, disintegrate or suppose, have a Latin origin. Many more Italian words share this same origin. That means that sometimes you will have an instinctive feeling about the meaning of an Italian word you’ve never encountered before, and that gut feeling will hit the mark.

Autore, disintegrare, supporre. Do they sound familiar?

Learning other romance languages will be easier

Not only is it easy to learn Italian, but learning Italian will pave the way to learning many other Romance languages. Can you name a few?

You sure can: French, Portuguese… Spanish!

These languages and Italian all share a common Latin root. Studying Spanish verb conjugations and vocabulary will get much easier if you learn Italian, and viceversa.
