This is the FINAL day of our online Italian lessons promotion.
So there was me, scratching around for a subject line that would be more original than ‘Online lessons offer ends today’.
I considered ‘Buy now or forever hold your peace‘, but then put it aside because it didn’t seem like such a great idea.
The first reason I rejected it was because it isn’t ‘forever’ anyway. There’ll likely be another online Italian lessons promotion in the New Year.
January is an excellent month for putting good intentions into practice (so is September) but in any case we like to do the occasional juicy offer so as to reward our loyal regulars.
So not ‘forever’.
The second problem was that, while the word ‘peace’ made me giggle (Italians mix up the ‘s’ and ‘z’ sounds so are liable to understand ”forever hold your peas”), I figured it was too much of an in-joke. I mean, who cares what feedback teachers give their students, right?
That said, perhaps it wouldn’t have been such a bad idea.
Maybe, just as my Italian students (learning English) really profit from spending time with an experienced native-speaker teacher who can get them speaking and gives feedback on their problems, you could benefit from some one-to-one help too?
Why try online Italian lessons?
There are lots of reasons. Here are three:
- PRACTICE: if you don’t speak Italian in your day-to-day life, you won’t be developing the skills you’ll need to express yourself in the language and understand what others are saying to you. Just one half-hour conversation a week can, over a reasonable period, make a significant difference to your confidence.
- PROFESSIONAL HELP: self-study is cool, and much cheaper. I’m a huge fan. I taught myself to play the trumpet (badly). And to speak Italian (also badly.) But perhaps if I’d invested a little more time and money when first learning Italian, way back in 1998, it would have paid off for me. Honestly? If I had that time again, I’d spend whatever it took to get done quicker and to finish up with a less obvious British accent…
- MOTIVATION: here’s a question for you: in your opinion, what percentage of people who start learning a foreign language actually reach the level of fluency that they dreamed of? Who knows what the true figure is, but I bet the ones who do make it find some way to motivate themselves to keep at it. Something stops them from giving up, despite the emotional highs and lows that they encounter along the way. Obviously, motivation can come from many sources, but well-planned, interesting lessons delivered by a teacher who may become almost a friend certainly don’t do any harm.
