Online Beginner Italian Course


To start off, this online Beginner Italian course is right for you if:

  • You live in Italy. Sometimes, you feel lost because you don’t speak the language, so you're unable to solve daily things. However, you don’t want to feel dependent on somebody else’s help anymore.
  • Your spouse speaks Italian, so you'd like to finally understand their family!
  • Perhaps, you've already tried taking an Italian course in a language school, but it just didn't work for you. All the grammar rules overwhelmed you!
  • Alternatively, you're a student on an exchange program in Italy and you'd like to just learn the basics to better connect with people around!

If we're talking about you, then sign up for our online Beginner Italian course!

Who are we?

  • We are Elemelingua, an online language learning platform, built by multilingual language specialists who are passionate about learning and speaking languages.
  • Our aim is to help others learn how to speak and understand a language quickly. By using science-based best practices, we've designed the best possible online language courses with a social element mixed with artificial intelligence!
  • Additionally, our goal is to help you speak & understand a language within months... instead of years!
  • Since 2018, we’ve already created 22 language courses for over 9,000 students, so we thought, why not help English speakers learn Italian too!
  • Our method was designed by Polish polyglot Konrad JvD who participated in the Polish edition of the TV Show “The Brain”, where he was tested on his knowledge of 14 languages. Watch it here.

Who is this course for?

  • You're a busy person and have no time for regular classes, so it would be better to learn whenever you're free. 
  • Language learning apps that have no human element can be boring, so you'd prefer to ask for advice or language related questions to someone directly
  • Your goal is to learn basic Italian quickly, so that you can communicate.
  • Memorizing words that you will never use in a conversation can be demotivating. Therefore, you need a method that will help you build sentences and simply talk in Italian.
  • You're looking for a method to learn Italian grammar without having to memorize long and boring tables!
  • It's hard to know where to start, so you want someone to organize the whole learning process for you.

What does our Beginner Italian course look like?

  • Every new course season starts weekly and lasts 24 weeks (6 months).
  • The next course will start on 26th March 2024 and sign-ups are open till 24th March 2024.
  • You are added into a group where there are other students learning the same language as you.
  • You can learn at home - on your smartphone or computer - and at any time, which means that there's no "fixed hours" for learning or lessons.
  • The course is hosted on our dedicated Globott application, where there are specially prepared flashcards. These help with learning new sentences in the blink of an eye!
  • Globott uses artificial intelligence to plan the pace at which you learn and repeat material. Consequently, speed & intensity are individually adjusted to you!
  • The course uses the latest scientific techniques to increase motivation, which makes learning more engaging and fun. As a result, our students study 4-5 days a week on average.
  • Our flashcards only have recordings of native speakers, which avoids the interference of mispronunciation by other students (or by non-native teachers).
  • Starting from week 2 you receive weekly dialogues (50 in total).
  • You learn the most important structures & vocabulary of a given language. As a result, it's possible to have conversations about the most basic topics, after just a few months!
  • Our course is designed in such a way that it is suitable for all learning styles (Fire, Water, Air and Earth); and it develops all four language skills: listening, writing, speaking and reading.
  • You have interesting weekly assignments, which allow you to check your knowledge of your chosen foreign language and the country where this language is spoken.
  • When something is unclear, you can ask teachers questions directly on the flashcards. In addition, you can also see other students’ questions and answers.
  • Best of all, you can receive points for daily learning and for completing assignments. Consequently, you can then exchange these points for prizes!
  • Most importantly, you start from scratch, so the aim is to achieve a level of basic communication (A2 level).

A system of language learning part humanistic and part digital

Sadia 🇵🇱

What were your challenges with language learning before enrolling in our course? With the Polish language, the unfamiliarity with the sounds, alphabets and lack of knowledge in vocabulary were the top most challenges. Apart from it on a personal level, lack of organization to sit in a classroom setup for learning was another major factor.

What prompted you to sign up for this course? I admired the opportunity from the team to enroll in a system of language learning part humanistic and part digital through the application.

What did you like the most about the course? Spontaneous communication, engagement from the end of Globott team, and personalized pace (which at times is a curse when you can't organize or dedicate the time)

How would you rate the learning outcome at the end of the course? My learning is still in progress, but to be honest most important thing is that now I try to actively listen to the polish language and make some sense (extremely basic level though), but before that, if there were such sounds in my surroundings, I didn't let them reach my ears even, let alone processing and understanding.

I enjoyed the flexibility of the schedule

Angela 🇵🇱

What were your challenges with language learning before enrolling in our course? My biggest challenge was finding a class that fit my family schedule. I was very happy to find an online course which allowed me to study as my schedule allowed.

What prompted you to sign up for this course? My friend's recommendation, and a discount code for enrolling in the first course.

What did you like the most about the course? I enjoyed the flexibility of the schedule. I could study when my time allowed, and at my own pace. I had the option to move ahead to new material, or go back and review previous material.

How would you rate the learning outcome at the end of the course? I now understand more Polish words and phrases, and it's easier to follow conversations and pick out things I understand. Being able to come up with the words for proper sentences, or feeling like I am getting proper word order without forgetting things, is coming much more slowly. I am sure I will eventually enroll in the next Polish language course, but it won't be right away. I need some time to finish getting through the rest of this course material, and do some practicing in "real life", before I will be ready to take on the next course.

I have started to understand the basic Polish used in day to day life

Yusuf 🇵🇱

What were your challenges with language learning before enrolling in our course? There were loads of confusions, like where to start from, whether to start with Grammar or learn the pronunciations etc. However globott brought an absolutely wonderful blend of all the right starters and built up to my first milestone of learning basic Polish.

What prompted you to sign up for this course? I always wanted an easy way to learn foreign languages. When I learnt about this app which omits all the odd and complicated approaches of the old school language learning methods and realized the easiness of learning through the natural and modern way, I had to sign up. Language learning can't be easier and more fun than this Globott way.

What did you like the most about the course? The anytime access to learning without any fixed schedules. Also the detailed explanations of each sentence and the combination of audio and visual aids made it all the more easy and fun to learn.

How would you rate the learning outcome at the end of the course? With such a short span and such less expense of time and efforts, I would give it 10/10 for the course. The outcome is indeed overwhelming as I have started to understand the basic Polish used in day to day life..

What is the price?

  • In a standard language school, in order to reach a conversational level, you'd usually need to attend the course for at least one year and spend around EUR 600-1,000!
  • Now, if you took private lessons, do you know how much it would cost? Much more! And, would you even be confident that you'd reached the desired level?
  • Now, our course is 6 months and only costs EUR 300!
  • Alternatively, you can pay in 6 monthly installments of EUR 50 each.
  • And if you pay for the full course right away, you will get one month free, so the total to be paid is only EUR 250.

Is there any guarantee of results?

  • We are convinced that by learning with our methods, you will be able to achieve really good results after just 6 months of study. We believe that our method works for the vast majority of students, regardless of their age, predispositions and previous learning experience!
  • However, if for some reason you are not satisfied with your results, we will refund the entire amount paid for the course.
  • If you choose to pay for the course in instalments, you can also cancel it at any time without having to pay further instalments.
