YouTube Channels

Youtube channels in foreign language learning are the old and tested way of self-learning. They can not replace lessons with a professional Italian tutor but can be a great additional tool on your way to Italian fluency. There are some popular YouTube channels you can not omit:

This Youtube channel can show you the basics of the spoken Italian language. There are many conversational videos that you can use as a reference when learning to speak out loud. The channels also have different rubrics from “Beginner” to the “Ask a Teacher” where the most common grammar, vocabularly, and spelling questions are asked.

There is one more hot Italian Youtube channel that can help you navigate through the language – Easy Italian. The guys show you the basics of the language, pick the most curious language pronunciation from the streets, and show it to the users. The videos are very fun to watch and easy to learn from.

Applications

Applications are a handy way to learn languages: you can turn it on when going to sleep, spend some minutes while having rest. There are not so many great apps on the market, and we are going to mention them all.

  • Duolingo

They say that Duolingo is the world’s best way to learn Italian. We can’t disagree with that. This funny owl is the favorite of the adults and the kids who learn languages. The app has a great lesson structure, vivid gamification, and pleasant sounds. There are free and paid versions – you don’t have to pay if you lose and do the round again and again. It can be exhausting. 

  • Gus on the Go

Gus on the Go is another hot tool for Italian learning. This tool is perfect for kids. Gus is also an owl, who travels across different places, learns about the culture of these places, and studies the Italian language. The kids can learn the basics of the language with Gus. The tool uses a friendly way of interaction, colorful graphics, and clear dialogues. It is also nice, that the owl travels a lot, and kids can learn the cultures as well.
