If you choose to take an Italian course, you’ve made the decision to start down a path to an experience that can transform your life. This decision can open you to new personal and professional possibilities that you have never considered. It can also expand your thinking and increase your confidence.
Taking an Italian course online is more convenient and practical than the time consuming and sometimes costly classroom courses. If you have familiarity with any of the other Romance languages (French, Spanish, Portuguese, or Romanian), you will already have a leg up on learning Italian, as they are part of the same linguistic family. Rosetta Stone is here to help you on your Italian learning journey whenever you are ready.
As one of the five Romance languages, it would be easy to get behind the idea of taking an Italian course to learn the language. Most view Italian with warm thoughts, and recognize it’s notable presence in cuisine and fashion. Beyond those endearing qualities, there are 69 million native Italian speakers. Another 16 million boast Italian as a second or learned language. Italy is a key location for business in Europe, making learning Italian an asset for both personal and professional reasons.
At Rosetta Stone, we have over 25 years of trusted experience developing language learning programs. Our experience has shown that anyone has the ability to learn a new language using the right approach. Simple word memorization is an ineffective way to learn Italian or any new language. With our language learning program, you will master the language with an immersive approach called Dynamic Immersion®. This methodology will teach you the foundation of the Italian language, preparing you to communicate effectively and with confidence.
In order to stick with the process, language learning must be convenient and fit into your life, not the other way around. Our brief, 10-minute lessons will fit into your schedule anytime. You’ll begin with the basics and then take on more of the language as you progress through the levels to more complex Italian grammar. Since you can use both the desktop and the mobile app , you will learn Italian at your convenience - anywhere, and at any time.
Developing the skills for accurate Italian pronunciation is a critical piece of learning the language, and relies heavily on immediate feedback of your efforts. Your success with Italian will depend on your ability to make immediate corrections. Rosetta Stone’s patented TruAccent™ speech-recognition engine will provide this to you by instantly comparing your voice to native speakers and giving you that real-time feedback. Using this real-time assessment, you will have the ability to adjust and tweak your accent. You will soon realize that TruAccent is a very valuable tool in your language learning adventure.
