Not everyone will agree with Benny Lewis', the Irish Polyglot's statement that language learning is easy. 

But, if you are serious about learning Italian - and even before you buy or subscribe to any expensive courses (except, obviously, GamesforLanguage.com's Italian Story, which is FREE!) - you may want to learn more about Benny's approach by clicking on his explanation of "Why Italian is easy!".

We recently discovered a very effective App for learning Italian: MosaLingua. There currently are iOS and Android Apps, with a MosalLingua Desktop App for PC, Mac and Linux users in the works. You can also try out the "Lite"version for FREE!

We like it a lot, are currently using it ourselves, and will post a review shortly.
