If hope you’ve been following my in-depth interview with Manu Venditti of Italy Made Easy. Manu generously gave of his invaluable time to answer what I consider to be very important questions regarding learning Italian. In this post Manu eloquently provides advice for students want to learn Italian.
Manu addresses so many of the components necessary to “sticking with it” and mastering the language.
I sure wish I had come across Italy Made Easy years ago. I think I would be much further along. He addresses expectations and possible hurdles. Believe me, you won’t want to skip over this. I’m all about expectations and thoughtful planning!
Don’t launch your efforts of speaking Italian only to lose steam when you move beyond the basics!
Italy Made Easy, and Manu’s teaching style joyfully will carry you along. I’ve never experienced an Italian teacher who is so kind, funny, gentle and humble. I feel like he’s pulling for me. That’s the kind of teacher who gets the best results.
I worked as a creative leader in marketing for more years than I care to advertize. For me, the magic happens when something or someone is steeped in authenticity. I vouch for the authenticity of Manu and Italy Made Easy.
It’s easy to sample Manu’s teaching style.
I encourage you to check out some of Manu’s free videos, and then to consider getting even more serious with a structured curriculum (he’s launching a program called Zero to Italian soon!). The following video can help you avoid some possible embarrassment when you are in Italy (just ask my sister about the first example!).
