Taking an Italian course, here in Italy or at home, is an excellent way to learn and practice the language.
But it’s not the only way!
So here are a few suggestions for things you can do right now, for free!
Italian Beginners’ Course Online
We developed dontspeakitalian.com for people who’d like to get an initial idea of Italian before committing themselves to studying the language. If you already know French or Spanish, you should find the material usable, even if you’ve never studied Italian before.
There are fifty pages of materials, including grammar explanations, audio and exercises. It’s aimed at beginners, but would be useful revision material whatever your level. Visit dontspeakitalian.com.
Free Audio Tracks With Transcripts
learnitalian4free.com is a similar project, but so far incomplete. Still, we thought you might be interested, as there are lots of useful listening practice tracks, with transcripts.

By far the most extensive of my choices today is onlineitalianclub.com, which has literally thousands of pages of free stuff.
