Learn Italian Lessons: Online Or Tutor?

Updated on July 11, 2010

For anyone who knows they want to learn Italian lessons, there is one major decision they will have to make before they can get started.  That is what method of learning they are going to use to acquire this new skill.  One is to figure out what method of learning you will use.  The two most popular choices are learning online using online courses and hiring a tutor.

 These are two quite opposite methods of learning but there are advantages and disadvantages to both sides of the fence.  One of the main benefits of learning online is that you get to do it on your own, on your own time.  There is no pressure of other students and no feeling embarrassed if you are not learning as fast as the others.  If you have any questions while you are online you can usually find the answer you need just by doing a quick search through Google or any other search engine.

 There are also a few important pluses that come from working with a tutor.  For one thing you will have a professional in the language who will be there guiding you along the way.  You are still getting the same type of guided lessons you would be if you were learning online, only you have a real live person there with you.  There is never a delay for answers when you have any questions nor is there a difficulty in finding out what your weak areas are.

 Your tutor will be there listening to you and can pinpoint exactly for you which areas, if any, you are struggling with and then focus on those.  There are also language learning CDs and group classes for learning Italian and other languages which are available.  There is no better way to utilize your time while stuck in traffic on the commute to work than using that time to learn an amazing new skill.  The most important thing is the education you are getting out of all this.

 The decision is completely up to you but it is vital to consider all options and carefully select the one that is going to work best for you.  The most important thing, no matter what you decide, is that you are taking steps to learn a new skill.  Or perhaps you and the spouse have wanted to plan a honeymoon vacation to Italy for some time now but never got around to learning the language.  Whatever the case may be it will certainly be more than worth it to use one of these methods of learning Italian.
