He has written a book called Why Italian Is Easy which where he will teach important techniques how you can learn Italian easily.
Name: Why Italian is Easy

What Is “Why Italian Is Easy?”
Why Italian Is Easy is a short course made by Benny Lewis (Irish Polyglot). He learned to speak Italian in a few months himself and in this book he explains how he did it. He wasn’t studying Italian full-time. On the contrary, he was working 63-hour-work week in a job where he needed mostly use English. I know that some people complain that they don’t have time to learn Italian but it’s not an adequate excuse after hearing Benny’s story.
Why Italian Is Easy consists of following parts:
1.Why Italian Is Easy –eBook. (The Main Product)
2.Italian Digital Immersion Device Set-Up Guide. Walks you through how to set up your digital devices in Italian.
3.Italian Daily Immersion Schedule. A scheduling tool with full of links to Italian learning resources. Gives you concrete steps how to schedule your day in order to learn more Italian.
I will give you some glimpses of all of those parts so you can have a better understanding what is it all about.
Why Italian Is Easy eBook
Benny starts his book explaining his story and how he managed to speak Italian in a few months. Then he gives the best principles and ideas how you can have a right attitude and mindset when you start to learn Italian. If you think that Italian is hard, then it can easily hold you back and slow down your process.
I always say that having the right attitude is 80% of the language learning and techniques are only 20%.
Italian Pronunciation Is Easy
Next, Benny gives tips how you can learn to speak Italian. He will tackle some concrete steps that you can take in order to master it. Italian pronunciation is very easy because it’s pronounced as it is written.
Tthe challenge is not that Italian would be hard but that English is so weird! 😉 Lewis will tell you how to overcome those challenges because he is an English native speaker himself.
There are some things in Italian that can scare you like a rolling R but Lewis will explain why you shouldn’t be scared at all.
Italian Grammar Is Easy
Did you know these things about Italian?
- It’s a completely phonetic language. Once you know how to read you can speak.
- No Cases. Compare to Czech and German.
- Very few irregular plurals. Almost all Italian plurals follow very simple rules like for example, vino/vini (wine/wines).
- No tones. Compare to Chinese and Thai.
Who can still say me that Italian grammar would be hard? Nobody. 😉
Italian Vocabulary Is Easy
Do you speak English, French, Spanish or Portuguese? If you speak any of those languages, then you already have a great advantage when you start to learn Italian.
Let me just mention a few words that you already know (there are hundreds of words similar to English)
- Turista, artista
- Delizioso, generoso
- Magnetico, fantastico
I don’t need to translate those words for you because they are so similar to English. Even though you wouldn’t have studied a single word in Italian, you can already read simple texts in Italian.
