I’m a big, big fan of self-study.
You probably worked that out, already.
I taught myself to play the trumpet, and to speak Italian, and Turkish.
But I’m also a professional language teacher.
I work in a school which does just one thing. We help people of all ages and nationalities learn foreign languages.
So sometimes I get a bit confused…
Am I saying that anyone can teach themselves Italian with resources from sites like this one?
Or that you’d be well-advised to get some professional help?
Should you do it your way, for free?
Or whip out your credit card, and let the experts take the strain?
Guess it depends what hat I have on…
Check out this article on our sponsor school’s site:
And have your say (there, or here, up to you):
– what aspects of a language course are most important for you?
– do you agree that finding the right Italian course can be a bit of a gamble?
The penultimate B1 Italian listening track is out tomorrow and the last one on Sunday. Next week we’ll be starting with the B2 stuff. The recording is happening in the next room as I type this, and some of them sound pretty fast… Hope you’re ready!!
