Focus on what makes you fluent...

Audio with adjustable narration speed

We all learn by listening and mimicking. That's why audio is paramount. First, rely on audio only without reading. Too fast for you? No problem, adjust the playback speed!

Italian transcript

After the first round of listening, read aloud the Italian text without looking at the translation.

English translation

Still puzzled by some words? Check out the English version!


Mark a reading to find it later on your dashboard and pick up where you left off.

... without the fluff


Experience points, avatars, fanfares, rankings... all these gamification elements distract you from your task - mastering Italian.

False sense of achievement

Some high-tech apps keep record of how many words you've "learned" so far. This gives a false sense of achievement by counting as learned words that you've barely seen in passing.


If you stop to look up each and every word you don't know, you lose the flow. To think in Italian, you should listen and read Italian. Only after you listen and read the Italian version, take a look at the English translation.
