Learning the Basics

If you're pressed for time, focus on the fundamentals. Study the Italian ABC's and Italian numbers, learn how to pronounce Italian words and try to ask questions in Italian

However, the quickest and most effective way to learn Italian is the total immersion method. So, I would suggest to follow one of my courses and then travel to Italy with me.

Isn't this a good idea?
