Italian is the most beautiful language in the world but talked only in Italy and a little part of Switzerland. For a lot of languages, they have created a website where you can learn heaps of languages for free having fun, the website name is " duolingo" I recommend this website also to kids and I suggest their parents let them playing with it. You need to create an account and LEARN, ' a bit every days is the motto'.

DUOLINGO is probably the most easy way to learn any language
