Learn Italian in Italy – Is it really necessary to travel?


Italy is a wonderful place to go for vacations. There is so much history, beautiful scenarios and exciting cultural elements to get acquainted with. It has been the world’s cross road for more than 2,000 years. We highly encourage you to pack up your suitcases and go. But if your main goal is to learn Italian in Italy, then you must read this post.

You may have many motives to go to Italy. And usually it’s a combination of things that encourage you to travel. But if one of your main goals is to learn Italian, you can advance a lot, even before you buy your plane tickets. Internet has so many resources to learn a language that you’ll have no excuse to not learn Italian.


We must be honest with you: nothing beats going directly to Italy to learn its language. We don’t want to discourage you from getting on the plane (or train if you’re already in Europe). There are so many benefits from traveling, that we could build a list that surpasses even learning the language. But there are a couple of things you must know before you hit the road:

a.) Just by being in the country where the language is spoken will not make you automatically learn the language. You must be highly motivated and work hard to learn it.

b.) The more Italian you learn before your trip, the more enriching will your experience be.

Here at Learn-Italian-Language.com we have grouped in one place a set of courses and resources that will help you greatly learning the language. And we have paid special attention in showing you many that are completely free.

Our main purpose is to make you have a great time while learning this romance language.

Why should you start learning Italian before you travel?
So this is our personal point of view. Think of it this way:

1. There are aspects of the language that you can learn on your laptop. And there are other aspects you can only learn by traveling. Don’t leave those things you can learn at home to be learnt on the road.

2. It will build expectation towards your trip. To start learning Italian before you arrive at the boot will prepare you in many ways. And one of them is that it will make you pay attention to details you would let go otherwise. Being sensitive to small details will make your trip much more memorable and at the same time reward you with a higher understanding of the culture and language.

Things you must check out before you travel:

  1. Hi Henry

    You are right. Learning even the very basics (how to greet, count, ask directions and a few basics like eat, restaurant, etc.) before a trip is indeed very helpful.

    It is also much fun to try to speak the language with the locals and to practice our pronunciation that way. We have found that the locals are immediately intrigued and open to make conversation, even if the rest of the conversation is conducted in English. But those first few sentences in their language, makes a huge difference to our traveling experience.

    Thank you for an enjoyable read, Henry!

    Cheers to us flying to go learn our language of choice! 😉

    1. Hello, Sharlee!

      Yes, I totally agree with you! In fact, as I read your comment I can mentally travel to those moments in which connection with locals is made. And that first minute of interaction is so important. And as you say, locals are immediately intrigued and open to make conversation. It’s so rewarding.

      But to achieve this, we must first learn the basics of that language before we travel.

      Thank you so much for your comment! It has made me recall those special moments in which the eyes of locals sparkle with excitement hearing a foreigner talking to them in their own language! 🙂
