Free Italian topics for learners

Our Italian topics are made up of 10 items (Beginner) or 20 items (Intermediate) of Italian (both the written text and a recording of a Italian person speaking the word / words) with a picture that illustrates that vocabulary. The Beginner topics are suitable for absolute beginner Italian learners, or pupils aged between 5 and 11. The intermediate topics are suitable for more advanced adult learners, or for secondary pupils aged between 11 and 16

Each item in a topic consists of the text (both the written Italian text and an audio recording of a Italian person speaking the word / words) with a picture that illustrates that item. The illustrations are very simply and nicely drawn so there will be no confusion as to what is being shown. The texts are available to see and hear on all product pages in this brown info sign below the main interface.

The language for each topic is carefully selected to match the language of the UK Italian as a second language curriculum. This means that if you are at school you should see the same language you are learning there for any particular subject. The topics, both beginner and intermediate, match with the topics available in our free online teaching Italian product Teach Italian.

Once a topic is selected at the beginning of a session at Learn Italian it will be remembered when you move between games and other activities. So you only need to choose a topic once and can then do multiple lessons, play multiple games and take multiple tests without having to select your subject topic again.

There are currently 56 Beginner topics and 58 Intermediate topics to choose from. These range from single Italian words (for instance "Body - parts of the body" or "Food - fruit"), short phrases (eg. "Time - what time is it?") to whole sentences ("People - appearance", "Home - helping at home"). An example topic is given below:

Parts of the body

1la testahead
2il braccioarm
3la gambaleg
4la manohand
5il piedefoot
6il ditofinger
7le dita del piedetoes
8la panciastomach

How to choose your Italian topic
at Learn Italian

Choosing a topic to learn at Learn Italian

Click on the "1. Start" button in the top navigation bar - that brings you to this topic selection page. On the topic selection page you will see that the topic selection is divided up in different ways:

  1. Beginner or Intermediate (the arrow at the bottom of the red sign)
  2. By whether they contain words or sentences (second column)
  3. Into simple categories (right hand of page)

Choose either Beginner or Intermediate level topics in the red sign. Now the categories for that level will load. Click on any sign to view the topics that fit the category description. For example, if you choose the Beginner category 'Animals' you will see a choice of two topics: "Animals - pets" and "Animals - farm". When you click on the name of the topic, the pictures, writing and spoken Italian for that topic will load (once the topic has loaded it will be available for all activities and will not have to be loaded again).

With the topic loaded you can choose whether to proceed to the lesson for that topic, or to jump straight to the games (tablet users are taken straight to the lesson when they choose a topic).
