Learn Italian for free in engaging trial courses

Unlock a new world

Italian is the fourth-most popular choice for language students across the world, and it's not hard to understand why. The language is beautiful, intricate, melodic and the key to appreciating Italy's wonderful arts, culture, gastronomy and history to their fullest. In fact, according to UNESCO, 60% of the world's great historic artworks are to be found in the country -and what better way to appreciate them than by touring with a passionate Italian-speaking art historian? If you are keen to work in tourism or to succeed in fields such as art, archaeology, history, philosophy and literature, it greatly helps to know Italian. Perhaps you want to work in the country's thriving economy, or to order confidently from a menu when you take that next Roman holiday! Keen to make new Italian friends or even to find romance? There are so many reasons to learn Italian, and - even better - the language is also one of the easiest for English speakers to learn. You could find a free course or watch some of the many learning resources available on the internet. However, their quality tends to be variable and they are often packed with advertising. If you have time and are happy to progress at a slower pace, you could take an evening class or a summer school - recognising that progress will typically be limited to the slowest learners in the class and highly structured to an established curriculum.
