At CyberItalian we know that some students prefer a playful and communicative approach, others like a rational, analytical, or grammatical approach: our method includes all these aspects.
The CyberItalian Method is based on a program developed for the UNSRC Circolo Culturale Italiano at the United Nations in New York. It gradually presents the basic, intermediate, and advanced structures of the Italian language through the 5 basic learning steps described above (1.listen and speak 2.learn the culture 3.discover the grammar 4.exercise 5.have fun and reinforce).
The aim of our method is to provide students with the tools to: 1) learn the language 2) learn how to learn it 3) express themselves. CyberItalian students quickly become independent in discovering the mechanisms of the language, deciding how to study and expressing themselves.
