This might be learning Italian in Italy or may be Italian instruction in other parts of world, and offering courses at all levels. Italian courses listed need will be short residential courses, summer schools, or dedicated Italian language holidays, rather than day courses or courses of extended study.

• Written Italian can be fairly difficult because of its many irregularities and exceptions, although it's a little easier for those that already speak a Romance language like Spanish or French.

• However, spoken Italian should be relatively easy as, once you understand a few basic rules, the words are pronounced as they are written.

• Standard Italian is the main language of Italy and is used all over the country, however it is the first language of very few Italians, most speaking one of the more than 15 regional dialects as their first language.

• These regional dialects are sometimes very similar to the standard language, but in some cases they can be very different!

• Sardinian and Friulan, are two regional dialects which Italian law recognises as official regional languages.

• In the UK, Italian is the fourth most learned second language.
