This is a list of my favorite resources for learning Italian that I personally use and find beneficial.
My philosophy: I believe the best language learning resources are always ones that YOU personally enjoy! Keep in mind that there is not ONE resource that does it all. It’s a matter of finding several that work well together to help you achieve your specific goals.
New resources will be added as I learn. If you have a resource that you would like to recommend or have me review, please feel free to contact me!
