Italian is considered a Romance language, meaning it evolved from Latin, like French and Spanish. In addition to being the official language of Italy and Vatican City, Italian is also spoken in Albania, Switzerland, and Slovenia. Worldwide, there are about 85 million speakers of Italian, with about 65 million of these living in the EU.

How does Italian Language Learning work?
The Time4Languages online Italian course features award-winning language learning homeschool content powered by Rosetta Stone® and is made up of 5 levels, each consisting of 4 units.
Time4Languages is a self-teaching program that allows K-12 students to learn at their own pace through engaging lessons. Students will start with the fundamentals and learn basic conversation skills like greetings, introductions as well as simple questions and answers.
Every unit includes 4 Core Lessons. Core Lessons will teach your student the Italian language. For students who have some understanding of the Italian language, they can use the Core Lesson within each unit as a method of gauging where they should begin.
Focused Activities within the Time4Languages online Italian course focus on speaking, reading, writing, pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar and listening.
Every activity within the course is graded and each unit ends with a conversational Milestone that will help students gain confidence by reviewing what they’ve learned through a simulated conversation in Italian.
Parents have access to automated reporting that allows them to measure progress from the online program rather than having to learn the language and grade their child’s work.
Student-paced, Interactive, and Fun Italian Language Learning!
The engaging Italian language course is both fun and effective. Students are able to interact with the course by speaking into a microphone (either built-in on the computer or purchased separately) to ensure that their pronunciation is correct.
For more detailed practice, students can access the Speech Analysis screen. This tool allows students to improve their pronunciation by recording and playing back their own voice in order to compare it with a native Italian speaker.
The Time4Languages online Italian course allows students to pause a lesson, repeat activities as often as needed, as well as skip lessons. Although it is recommended that students follow the suggested sequence since the material is created to build upon itself, Italian language learners have the option to work in a different order.
For maximum benefits, it is recommended that students log into their Italian language course 3-5 times per week, for 20-30 minutes each day.
