Online Italian Language Course
Time4Languages makes it simple for Time4Learning K-12 students to learn Italian or improve their Italian fluency.
The online Italian language course features an award-winning, proven method in which students will learn to speak and think in Italian. An immersive environment teaches students by connecting words and phrases with images. There is no memorization or translation involved.
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 powered by Rosetta Stone®. This course has five levels, each consisting of 4 units.
Focused Activities within the Time4Languages online Italian course focus on speaking, reading, writing, pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar and listening. Students will start with the fundamentals and learn basic conversation skills like greetings, introductions as well as simple questions and answers. Students 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.
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.
For more detailed practice, students can access a speech analysis tool. This tool allows students to improve their pronunciation and accent 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.
To best learn fluency, it is recommended that students work on their Italian language course 3-5 times per week, for 20-30 minutes each day.
