Hi, a while back I saw a post in which several people mentioned they were about to start the Italian course. I just wondered how you were all getting on with it, as I have expressed an interest in a future course?

I started it but found it difficult to take in. I have signed up for a local class instead as I think languages are easier with a group to chat with and structured learning.
Futurelearn is good if you are disciplined but I am easily distracted.

I enjoyed it and finished it , but I have done Italian classes before so I knew a some of the vocab and my grammar improved. It's better to go to classes as then you get practice in speaking which you don't get in an online course.

Oh well I'm due to start on Monday. Not very self disciplined so I will have to try to set aside set times for it. Fingers crossed!

I regret to say that I haven't done anything with it yet because of problems with the sound on our computer!

I'm starting on Monday too. Difficult without others in a class but bound to learn something from it!

It will be interesting anyway. I'm quite looking forward to it but it wifi be odd, studying without others an a 'class'. Maybe we can encourage each other wot.

Wellies started the Italian course, finding it quite interesting so far. Definitely need me a notebook though, for vocabulary and grammar!

Wellies? I meant of course, 'well I started' !

About time I started again. I was doing an A'Level course in UK before we moved here- and I can get on pretty well. I'd really like to continue, but the courses run in my area are for beginners only. I was hoping to join our local 'Lycée' (6th Form) but they stopped running the Italian course last year.

Perhaps time to go on an intensive course in Italy- perhaps at the adult University of Perugia.
