The Linguaphone method is based on two simple principles:

  • You learn faster when you enjoy what you are doing.
  • You make progress if the sort of language you learn is useful and presented in a believable, familiar context.

Speaking Italian is an active skill - something you learn by doing, not just studying. This is the practical approach taken by Linguaphone to language learning. You will start to speak Italian during the very first lesson. The course begins simply, building your confidence session by session. Soon after, longer sentences are introduced to enable the expression of more detailed and complex thoughts. But the course always concentrates on useful, authentic everyday words and situations. The result is that, after completing a Linguaphone Complete Italian course, you will have a thorough understanding of the Italian language and be able to converse with and understand real people speaking the language.

The study sequence, LISTEN, UNDERSTAND and SPEAK, used in Linguaphone courses is fundamental to the Linguaphone method of learning.

Listening to native Italian speakers is the most relaxing and involved way to learn, helping you associate the sounds you hear with the words and sentences you read. The native Italian speakers in this course begin by speaking slowly (but without distorting the intonation of the language) and, as the course progresses, speak at normal speed.

By listening and reading the language, you begin to discover what each word means. Everyday objects have exciting new names. Gradually words, then phrases, become clear and your reading, writing and speaking of the Italian language will improve.

Many people find that speaking their new language is the hardest part. But Linguaphone's method makes sure that you start speaking Italian from the very first lesson with the correct pronunciation. Imitating the voices of the native Italian speakers on the course will help you get used to the intonation and accent. Later on in the course, you will have the opportunity to take part in conversations. Each lesson introduces new themes featuring useful Italian words and phrases thus developing your conversational skills and confidence.

This Italian language course is suitable for beginners as no previous knowledge of the Italian language is necessary. It’s also a popular choice for those who may have learned some Italian in the past and want to refresh and improve.

The course covers Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels in the Italian language . It’s important to remember that a Linguaphone Italian course does not simply teach you handy words and phrases. The course is designed to teach you how the language works and how to use it effectively in any real life situation. So whether it’s for work or pleasure, Linguaphone will give you the confidence to speak Italian freely and with flair.

As you encounter new vocabulary (more than 2,000 words) you will also be taught structures that will allow you to understand and be understood. You'll be speaking Italian in no time. For example

  • Expressing your opinion e.g. Talking about yourself / making light conversation / socialising / business scenarios
  • Dealing with hospitality e.g. Hotels, restaurants, bars etc
  • Travel and transport e.g. directions, public transport, car hire, etc
  • Out and about – e.g. shopping, post office, bank and local authorities
  • Emergencies – e.g. doctor, dentist, hospital, police etc.

+ many more practical topics and everyday situations

A word of advice in choosing any language course; don’t worry too much about just learning vocabulary and phrases, if that’s all you want, just buy a phrasebook. If you really want to know how to speak Italian, how to freely express your thoughts and feelings, how to comfortably understand native Italian speakers  and how to call yourself a Italian Speaker – then choose Linguaphone. It’s like having your own private tutor, at home.

taxi driver in MIlan
This course was recommended to me by a taxi driver in Milan. He must be on commission! Review by farefinder / (Posted on 21/01/2020)
good investment
I bought this course 10 years ago and started it again recently. Linguaphone let me upgrade the Cds to digital for free. The weird thing about Linguaphone courses is that they're kind of infectious. It's like and old friend that you can drop in on... Read Morey time and catch up . I pick n andd choose the sections I like and revisit them again and again. Unfortunately they never brought out an expert level course like their other languages but it's a great investment if you want to achieve a reasonable standard of Italian. I'd say a B1 level.
