Is a trip to Italy in your imminent future? Are you hoping that you can improve your Italian so you can really get a taste of the culture?
You’re not alone. Many members of The Iceberg Project community feel the same motivation as you for learning the Italian language, and it’s one of the reasons I love helping people learn + fall in love with the Italian language. When you can speak the language, you get to truly experience the culture of Italy that so many people have fallen in love with.
In this special episode of The Iceberg Project, I chat with four members of The Iceberg Project community who are preparing for upcoming trips to Italy.
We discuss what learning Italian has been like for them, how they’ve been preparing for their trips, what they’re struggling with and how they plan to improve on their weaknesses. You’ll notice that they have a lot in common in their Italian language learning journey, and you may find that you have some things in common with them as well!
In this episode, you’ll learn:
— Why they chose to learn Italian, even if it may be an “impractical” language
— The methods these students use to learn Italian and how they adapt their studying techniques based on what is or isn’t working for them
— How they step out of their comfort zones to keep making progress with Italian (even though it’s scary!)
— What to do when you get frustrated with learning (which is completely normal + expected)
— Three main tips you can follow to see consistent progress with your language learning (and what exactly constitutes “progress”)
