Learn Italian is a free online resource for beginners learning Italian and offers a complete set of Italian tutorials, practice Italian games and quick Italian tests for over 100 Italian topics, all free. Use the options in the box below to learn or revise any topic with any activity.
Start your visit to Learn Italian with the Italian Lesson for your chosen topic. Each of our 100+ lessons consists of an introduction to the topic language and 3 lesson activities - a yes/no activity, an either/or activity and a multiple choice activity. During the introduction to the topic, it is important that you repeat the audio after you hear it, and write down the texts to help your memory absorb both the sound and look of that language.
The 3 lesson activities are graded from easy to more difficult. As you work your way through them, you will find that your grasp and retention of the target language gradually improves. By the time you have completed the whole lesson, you should be able to recall and repeat the vocabulary for each of the topic items without prompting.
There are 13 free games you can use to practice the Italian topic you are learning at Learn Italian. The games are quick and simple to play and improve language retention by excercising different areas of the brain. Try a variety of games for the best results! The games are free to use and work on both tablets (including iPads) and desktop computers.
Complete your topic learning session by taking our 2 tests - a multiple choice test and a writing test. These will confirm that you have fully grasped and are able to reproduce the Italian you have learned by doing the lesson and playing the games.
The writing test is harder than the multiple choice but is important if you wish to be able to write Italian as well as speaking it! As you can see from the screenshot, there is a Help button if you get stuck...
