Next Steps in Italian

Next Steps in Italian:

After the first step on this Easiest Foreign Languages web site enables you to read and pronounce thousands of Italian words similar to English, what should your next steps be?

For adult beginners, reading Italian is easiest.

Second Step: READING MORE ITALIAN. Because English and Easiest Italian share many words that look alike in print, the easiest ability for you to continue to develop will be reading more in Italian. You can read at your own pace, unlike being forced to keep up when trying to listen.

Reading Italian will be helpful if you travel. You will find that reading some Italian will help enable you to read your way around Italy, because finding your way depends so much on reading, even more than speaking and listening.

Third Step: LISTENING. Listening to understand spoken Italian is more difficult than reading and will develop much more slowly, because the sounds of Italian differ greatly from English -- and foreigners seem to speak so fast. However, listening to instructional audio as a second step is a good way to begin learning to understand all those Italian sounds.

Fourth Step: SPEAKING. Speaking Italian is more difficult to learn than reading or listening. The pronunciation patterns of Italian are different than the ones you are used to in English. Even many of the Italian words spelled identically to English ones are pronounced differently.

Fifth Step: Writing Italian. The most complex skill, writing will develop last, as it does in your native language.
