Nowadays, it is quite common for people to want to learn a foreign language during their spare time, and often this means learning on one’s own, at home, or on the train on the way to work.

Do not worry, self-studying the Italian language is easier than you might imagine. The important thing is not to get overwhelmed and to take one step at a time.

In this short post, we’ll tell you all you need to know to start learning Italian by yourself, and how to do it successfully!

Study Italian on your own

First of all, you need to make the commitment. This is the most basic and most important aspect of starting to learn anything new.

Unlike with a group course or one-to-one tutoring classes, if you decide to learn Italian on your own, you will be on your own! This means that there will be no set times to study, and no one to tell you what to practice and to tell you off when you don’t.

This kind of studying requires a high level of commitment and motivation, so make sure you keep your spirits high and have some good reasons to start learning this beautiful language.

My advice is: decide how much time you can commit to learning Italian, and stick to it… and try to be realistic!

The best resources for self-studying Italian

Another essential aspect of learning Italian on your own is to find the best material and resources to study and practice. A well-structured course and a mobile app can do wonders to help you cover all the topics you need and to practice what you’ve learned.

Also, if you want to sound like a native speaker one day, make sure you practice your listening skills, pronunciation, and speaking.

Usually, a mix of various resources is the best combination to learn quickly and to keep yourself motivated. Use online resources and grammar posts, a good language app for practicing and revising vocabulary and grammar rules, and make sure you watch Italian movies and news in your spare time, as well as listening to Italian music. 

Learning a language is not just about vocabulary and rules, it is about immersing yourself in the culture and lifestyle of Italy and discover new interests and passions along the way.

If you do it this way, you will surely not abandon what you set out for, and you will soon be ordering a cappuccino in Venice with your best Italian accent!
