Using my Fluenz Italian on a recent trip to Italy
My partner and I recently spent 13 days on a guided tour around Italy (Lake Como, Milan, Venice, Florence, the Amalfi Coast, and Rome). In preparation for the trip, I purchased the Fluenz Italian program and although I was only able to make it through Level 3 before it was time to head for Italy, the program gave me the confidence to ask politely for the menu, drinks, food, the bill, and of course the location of the bathroom whenever we had free time to enjoy a city on our own. Although most everyone speaks English, I was thrilled to be able to say a few things in Italian to show respect for the Italians, their language, and their culture. Although our trip is done, I plan to complete levels 4 and 5 of Fluenz Italian. I'll continue to use the audio files and flashcards as well. I enjoy the Fluenz approach to language learning and find it both effective and engaging. Italian is my second language with Fluenz, Spanish having been the first. A big "Thank you!" to the Fluenz team for creating such a great product. Keep up the good work!
