Learn Italian online:
You may think of learning Italian online as a second best choice but think again! Our Italian online lessons are structured in the same manner as if you were in class: they are thorough and truly provide for plenty of practice, and the teacher who presents the course, Giacomo, is humorous and has the uncanny ability - born of many years of teaching experience - to predict what your next question will be, so you're definitely in good hands.
Our online Italian lessons are hosted on Vimeo On Demand, and each online lesson, which is approx. 2.5 hours in duration (even though Giacomo does get carried away at times!) is split into a number of "parts", or "episodes", which constitute a "series". By clicking on the image link for each lesson above you'll be taken to the corresponding Vimeo On Demand page where you'll be able to view the trailer for the lesson and, if you wish, to "rent", for US$9.95 (payable by credit card or Paypal), all the episodes which constitute the "series" for that particular lesson. When you "rent" a lesson you'll be able to watch, whenever you like, on your computer, tablet, or smart phone, the whole lesson for up to a year even though we do hope you won't be dawdling on a single lesson for a year!
In each lesson we provide you with instructions on how to download for free the course notes in Pdf format. The purpose of the course notes is for you to see the written form of what is being covered - especially if it's not very clear on the whiteboard - and to add your notes and translations, even for future reference. We don't explain things to any great extent in the course notes - all the explaining is covered in the online lessons. A cautionary note: Giacomo's main preoccupation whilst filming a lesson is to keep the lesson flowing, so he often changes between topics and, on occasion, forgets to indicate what page of the course notes he is working on. The course notes are not hundreds of pages long so we trust it shouldn't be too problematic to find the right page. If you are occasionally confused, please accept our apologies in advance!:
