“Discover the Italian Memorization Tools and Techniques that Help You Learn Italian in HALF the Time!”
Yep, that’s right… No matter how much you suffer, struggle and strain to get your mind around the most basic understanding of the Italian language…
I personally think there are some huge problems out there for people like you trying to learn to speak my beautiful Italian language. For starters, many of the popular selling Italian language programs have you falsely believe that you can learn to speak Italian without having a solid grammatical foundation. Let me tell you, that’s just not possible! To become fluent in Italian you have to think in Italian. And, you can not begin to think in Italian unless you have a good Italian grammar foundation. It’s really that simple and straight forward!
The second problem that I see is that many of these Italian courses place a lot of emphasis on memorization of words and phrases. They use some very rigid methods to drill into your head the meanings and definitions of what they consider to be practical and useful Italian words and phrases. Very little emphasis is given to using real scenarios and natural conversations in their lessons. So, often times your quest to learn to speak Italian becomes more difficult than it should be. By this point, many people convince themselves that they just can’t learn to speak Italian. Oh, how wrong they are, how wrong they are…
