Looking to learn Italian faster? Sound like a gimmick? I assure you, it’s not. How to Learn Italian fast is my book (and now an online course) I wrote because I wanted to give lost, but motivated learners a fighting chance at learning Italian. When I first started learning Italian all those years ago, I knew nothing about grammar. Not in English and certainly not in another language. Suddenly having to learn a plethora of new terms and words was a very daunting task.

Learning Italian transformed my life. After going on my first language holiday to Italy, I enjoyed the experience so much that I moved to Rome with just an intermedia level of Italian under my belt. For the next three years, I became a stronger and more independent person and it was all thanks to being able to and was able to easily converse with native speakers. 

Who is this for?

This book is for you if:

  • You want to be able to quickly form questions and coherent phrases in Italian on your next holiday or at your local Italian restaurant
  • You want to learn and internalise a large range of vocabulary that you can easily recall
  • You want to communicate with ease and confidence with native speakers

How does it work?

Easy Italian Grammar - Speaking Italian in Rome My top-selling 5-star rated book on Amazon is a paint by numbers system which simplifies everything. From grammatical terms to forming sentences, all the while continually building upon your working knowledge of the language.

I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by the information in this book, and how useful it has been in making the next step to learning Italian. The chapter on “Italianising” English words is alone worth the 5 stars. I have been using free apps to this point, and they have been helpful, but the information in this book had moved me forward in my progress. I do recommend it, and would not have had I not thought it worth it. – GardenGirl, Amazon US

The most useful and by far my favourite step is the one on modal verbs. Just by knowing a few verbs you can form loads of different sentences which is awesome when you’re just starting out and don’t know how to conjugate all the irregular verbs. Highly recommend! – Basil P, Amazon UK

Students loved the book so much that I even created an online travel Italian course. Learning Italian changed my life which you can read all about here and why I created this Italian language course that will transform your travels. Click here for more details and get instant access!

Each step is structured and organised so that you fully understand the language easily and don’t forget it. The language is broken down into building blocks that are introduced in such a way that you create your response then move on to ever-more-complex sentences. There is no need to stop for homework, additional exercises, or memorising vocabulary, so you progress rapidly.

Each key factor of the Italian language is broken down into steps. These key areas are what makes it possible for you to start speaking Italian, even after Step 2. Each step explains the core elements along with examples and pronunciation.

In order to be effective, each area of grammar is stripped back to its essentials making the completion of each step achievable within approximately 1-hour.

What this book isn’t, is a classical classroom-style approach that teaches you boring and impractical topics such as numbers and days of the week.

Instead, it’s fun! This book empowers you from Step 1. It arms you with grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation without any memorisation, homework, or exercises.

That’s right. You read correctly. As your teacher, the onus is on me to ensure that you grasp each new concept. If you still have questions, email me at michele@fluentbeforeyoufly.com.

You’ll discover a plan for learning Italian in a total of 8 hours. This works out to just 30 minutes a day over 16 days.

So, you’ll focus on learning Italian thirty minutes a day – with maybe the occasional day off.

I’ve tried learning Italian before and it’s always a struggle. Really like this book – it’s got a refreshing approach and I’m actually remembering the words now. Worth reading! – Michelle K, Amazon.co.uk

‘Cutting out the crap’ as you put it was my main focal point. Too often students are put off by too much information too soon. It’s important to focus on the essentials that ensure progress which in turn keeps you motivated. Thrilled you enjoyed it! :)
