The thing we always have to keep in mind when trying to learn a different language it's not to be afraid to make/say mistakes. It's normal, and the best way to begin to speak it's like this. People with whom we deal with(teachers, students, and other foreigns students) know from the start that we're not fluent and always try to help. I even learn Italian by going shopping and asking the people in the store, how we say things... It's really great and the best way to learn it.

Well, italian and spanish are similar languages. So I guess that is the reason why i learnt so fast. Also, i found that is a country where most of the people help you in a conversation or do an effort to try to understand what you are saying. Also I liked so much italian language because of the way it sounds, so I had from the begining the interest to learnt it. I guess that this interest was also an important factor in the learning of the language

When i arrived in Italy, it was to refind my roots. My father is italian so it was a great opportunity to know better my familly. So i improved my vocabulary, speaking with us. With other Erasmus (German, Spanish, Ungarian...), evreybody wants to learn Italian, in order to improve their level. And with their foreign accent, the language became easier, so better to learn and remind it.

At the beginning i arried in Italy knowing only the basics of the language. I had spent a year in Siena so I knew more or less how to speak in all the different situations. But after the Torino experience I could speak fluently in every type of situation without hesitating or mistaking in italian.

It's generally a big advantage to have at least a basic knowledge of the host country's language before going there... Still, it's amazing how quickly you'll learn when you're living in a full-immersion environment.
