Rosetta Stone


Rosetta Stone is practically a household name when it comes to language learning, having gained popularity for its comprehensive lessons that teach Italian in a number of ways (e.g. audio, visual, etc.). Although Rosetta Stone's regular prices are expensive compared with other programs, they often have significant discounts that may make learning Italian as affordable as other, lower-ranked options.

Cyber Italian


CyberItalian exclusively uses the Internet to provide its very detailed, comprehensive Italian lessons in a variety of ways, from basic self-study courses to hour-long private lessons.

Pimsleur is a well-established provider of language instruction, best known for its 30-minute audio lessons. If you are an auditory learner—you learn best by hearing—Pimsleur is a terrific, albeit expensive, method for learning Italian. On the other hand, if you prefer a more balanced, visual means of studying a new language, be sure to look at Pimsleur's DVD version that also provides Italian reading lessons, flashcards, and other features in addition to the audio instruction.

Innovative Language


Innovative Language’s ItalianPod101 uses a variety of approaches - audio, video, and written - to teach the language and culture of Italy at a wide range of fluency levels. Figuring out the best lesson progression can be tricky, and some customers may be put off by the heavy "limited-time offer" sales pitch. We suggest that you try the one-week free trial before committing to a subscription.

Transparent Language


Transparent Language offers Italian instruction for adults as an audio course and an online subscription, along with a KidSpeak desktop app solely for Windows computers. Compared with other products, Transparent Language Italian is best suited for self-directed learners, as it does not provide as much of a step-by-step progression through the language skills.

Ling Q


LingQ (pronounced like the word "link") presents Italian lessons using authentic Italian texts and by helping students connect with native speaker "helpers", who correct non-native mistakes in students' writing samples and carry out one-on-one and group conversations online. However, LingQ's pricing plans make it difficult to know exactly how much money it will cost while working towards fluency in Italian; those connections use "points" purchased in addition to the lessons. We recommend trying the free membership first, to see if the method is a good fit. Read More... Visit

2 stars
Unforgettable Languages


Unforgettable Italian's primary focus is on retention of Italian vocabulary words using a speed-learning mnemonic technique known as "Linkwords", making it most useful for people who need help committing words to memory. But, for students who are looking for a well-rounded Italian program that thoroughly teaches grammar, pronunciation, and even culture, Unforgettable Italian will likely not meet their needs.

1 star
Strokes International


Strokes Easy Learning Italian targets beginning, intermediate, and advanced business students according to the EU Standards A1 to C1. We found that Strokes Easy Learning falls well below other more highly-rated products in our review, because it has few positive reviews, several errors on the website, and zero return policy.

Continued from above

Whether you're brand-new to studying the Italian language or hoping to sharpen your Italian grammar and pronunciation, you have a variety of programs from which to choose. When deciding which program will be your wisest investment, you should take a look at each program's methods.

Some Italian programs can easily meet the needs of different learning styles - visual, auditory, and so on - making use of flashcards, games, multiple choice questions, audio lessons, and pronunciation practice using a microphone to compare your accent with a native speaker's.

On the other hand, a few Italian language programs emphasize one single strategy (for example, 30-minute mp3 lessons for on-the-go learning) that may or may not fit with your most comfortable learning environment. Fortunately, most providers of Italian instruction offer some sort of free trial, to help you decide if their program is a good match for your goals, learning style, and budget.

When comparing Italian programs, begin by considering the following:

  • Instructional Methods. Do the Italian lessons use a teaching style that fits your personality? Do they deliver instruction in a variety of ways or just focus on a single method?
  • Skill Level. Are the Italian lessons primarily for beginners or for experienced speakers? Do the lessons let you move from one level to another for the money paid, or do you have to purchase additional products to keep progressing?
  • Value. Is the progress you expect to make worth the amount you need to spend? has reviewed and ranked the best Italian Lessons available today. We hope these reviews help you learn one of Europe's most romantic languages quickly and easily!
