Hai Ramza,

Actually Im not an Italian or living there...
But, I pretty much know about that country.

Well actually, in every community (place of ur living) they have italian course for free, as long as you have the stay permit in Italy. Through thay I think you can get both, learning Italian and friends too :)

Good luck.
I wish one day I can arrive to live in Italy too :)

Hi Pearl 1803

Thanks for the reply, i will definitely look into that. Someone else something
quite similar, i have to wait for September as most school-like activities are closed
for the summer. And hey good luck with coming to Italy, maybe you can look at teaching
English.

Same story, I live in the wilds of Abruzzo - and Italians don't speak English as much as other countries lve lived - why should they, I guess. I'm not around people all that much so don't get to practice. Most important.
Try Michel Thomas Italian (download or App) appalling accents but a really good method.

First of all, you can get free Italian language lessons and study materials from the BBC website. That should be a good starting point.

Secondly, you should look in your area for free Italian language classes usually offered by non-profit organizations and municipalities with the purpose to integrate recent immigrants into Italian society. Your "Comune" should have some information available.
