Learn Italian with movies and TV programs

Learning a language is also a matter of quantity input and full immersion in the culture and usage of the other language. Original videos and movies are therefore a great help in providing this input, in a pleasant way. And remember that repetition - replaying the video - is another key aspect in learning.
Watching movies in their original version is a quite effective way to learn Italian, while enjoying a story and authentic dialogues. Beginners could start with subtitles in their own language, then as a second step see the movie again with subtitles in Italian.
