I highly recommend watching 2NIGHT- Italian film made in 2016 or 2017- available on Amazon Prime. Very modern, very believable, and very funny. The dialogue isn’t hard to follow (as there are only 3 characters). I could follow it pretty well and I am only up to Italian 3 in FLUENZ. It all takes place in one night in Rome. You won’t be sorry. The acting is really good and so is the story and the music.

Following Fluenz Italian Level 5 I was casting about for a tool to help me continue to progress. An Italian instructor suggested "Duolingo", which is a free online program. It would be very difficult to start out with Duolingo, but with the knowledge base that Fluenz has given me, I am making good progress with verbal comprehension and flexibility. I recommend it to those who want to go on from Fluenz. Not only that, it is fun!

I finished studied Fluenz Italian 1-2-3 last month and just had a day layover in Rome after a long trip in Africa. Well again thanks a lot Fluenz for teaching me enough so that I could buy metro train and tickets, order meals, ask for directions and much more! I made a few mistakes, mostly because I was mixing Spanish and Italian, with small words like molto/mucho, and numbers (quatorce/quatordici) but overall I felt pretty confident and my knowledge of French and Spanish definitely made comprehension very easy. I can't wait to start Fluenz Italian 4!

For anyone in NY City this weekend there is HD Opera shown nightly at 8PM in Lincoln Center plaza. I'm especially looking forward to Monday when Madame Butterfly will be shown. Of the 5 or so arias I've attempted to memorize "Un bel di, vedremo" is in the top 2 for ease of learning to the point of hearing it without the need for translation. https://www.metopera.org/season/summer-2018/summer-hd-festival/

Hi everyone, I'm looking for recommendations for the best Italian Immersion Programs here in the USA or preferably in Italy for 4 weeks or so. Thanks so much. Bobby

I have used several language programs to study Italian, including Fluenz. Fluenz is helpful but it is the only program that I used that does not even touch on the subjunctive (both Pimsleur - my favorite - and even Rosetta Stone do at level 5). Granted, you can get through a trip to Italy without il congiuntivo but it's virtually impossible to progress towards fluency or to understand spoken Italian well without it. Forse non ci sia abbastanza domanda per un livello sei, ma se ce ne fosse uno, vorrei comprarlo.

Oggi ho finito Fluenz 5. Cinque mesi fa ho cominciato quest'avventura con Fluenz e sono molto felice di aver finito tutto il programma. Vorrei ringraziare a Manila e a Sonia per tutto quello che loro hanno fatto per l'italiano. Spero un giorno sia possibile avere "Fluenz Immersion" in Italia. Grazie a tutti!

I would like to know what others do, or what Fluenz recommends. Should we need to complete a lesson 100% correct before moving on? I am currently in Section 4, lesson 9. While I get most of the lessons, I still make mistakes. I don't know whether to continue on or stay with the lesson and practice longer until it is perfect. Just curious about others. Thank you!

Just want to pass on a little tip I have been using for clarifying something that I am kind of sure I heard right (i.e., from a native speaker on Rai Italia,from a movie in Italian, etc), but am not absolutely sure about how to write and/or repeat correctly. In addition to making use of Google Translate, I have been doing searches for what I think is close to being it on Google Italia. I often find that Google Italia will, sooner rather than later, provide me with the grammatically correct version of whatever it is I think I have heard, as long as I have enough of the phrase correct. I also use Google Italia in conjunction with Google Translate in order to, more accurately, translate something I want to say in Italian (from English), to help better ensure that whatever comes out of Google Translate (in Italian) is indeed something that Italians might actually say, and not just a literal translation from Google Translate. In my experience, learning something incorrectly can be very hard to undo! An Italian dictionary, which has pronunciation stress marks, has also been beneficial to me in order to prevent my learning, incorrectly, how to pronounce words; something else that can be very hard to undo!!!!
