We all learn language differently. Some like to listen, some read, some need pictures. On these pages you'll find a whole variety of ways for you to learn Italian. Language skills can be learned no matter what your age or previous experience - all you need to do is browse to find which way, or ways, suit you best.
Some of the resources we recommend are ways for you to learn Italian free; others need to be paid for. The best method, of course, is to visit Italy and talk to the people. But if you can't do that, these resources are the next best thing.
If you don't want to learn Italian but just need a phrase or two for a greetings card, have a look at our special 'words and phrases' pages for examples.
And if you want to reflect your Italian heritage in the name of your children, our girls' and boys' names pages will tell you not only the most popular names but also their meaning, their equivalent (if there is one) in English, and even their saint's day - an important part of the culture of Italy.
