Hi! This is Manu again, and welcome back to my short Italy Wise series here on YouTube!
Italy Wise is a blog full of information about Italy and is owned by a good friend named Jed. His blog is very useful for people who have plans of visiting Italy for a short period of time or even people who wants to stay in Italy permanently.
As I mentioned on the intro video, Jed and I did some sort of collaboration where he will give me 6 questions and each question will be answered by me using YouTube videos.
The third question I am going to answer from Jed is “What would you advice as being the shortlist to focus on initially, to help build a sense of confidence?”
I believe that a person who’s learning Italian should first focus on VOCABULARY. Learn as many words as you can. When I say many words, I don’t mean just any random words but the most frequently used words in Italian. You can ask Google for the “top frequent Italian words” or “most used Italian words”.
The second advice I would give to people learning is to get PRONUNCIATION right. Get the sound correctly. It will make you feel proud to know that you can pronounce each word correctly compared to other non-Italian speakers.
The third advice I would give is to learn the GRAMMAR. I don’t mean you to be a “master in grammar” because you don’t need to. You just have to be at least be exposed to enough grammar, may be for 3 to 6 months.
In this video, I also mentioned about things that you don’t have to worry about when learning Italian. Want to know what they are? Watch the video now to find out!
