Instead of memorizing phrases without understanding how they work, our video tutorials break down Italian into the building blocks, one step at a time, in order to build your fluency.
Our path through Italian has been custom-built for English speakers, the opposite of programs that rely on matching of words and pictures without explanations in order to sell the same package in China, France, or the U.S.

For those who are vacillating between this program and Rosetta Stone, I would seriously consider how you personally prefer to learn. I often saw the commercials for Rosetta Stone and was skeptical about its approach, especially when they showed a tidbit of the Spanish lesson and you hear the audio sample say, "El caballo corre." Being a former student of Spanish I scratched my head a bit. Looking at the picture they presented with "El caballo corre", I saw a horse running. If I hadn't taken Spanish before, I would have surmised from the picture that "el caballo corre" meant "the horse is running." But that is not what "el caballo corre" actually means. It means "the horse runs." But how can one understand verb tense without english instruction and just picture associations? I suppose there is a progression to the lessons that I didn't have the benefit of seeing from the commercial, but it appeared as though there was a lot of room for misinterpretation with that format.
What sold me on Fluenz is that it takes the traditional stance of a teacher relating the language to you from the standpoint of english. There is explanation rather than inference from a picture. You begin right away by learning practical phrases that are helpful, rather than phrases like "the lady eats a sandwich." Again, I know it is all a progression, but you can logically progress with practical phrases too, not only with "the horse runs."
However I will say that Rosetta Stone appears to do a better job in helping the learner to pronounce things as accurately as possible. Sometimes we can't always hear how incorrectly we might be saying a word. My brother, who owns Rosetta Stone Italian, explained that the program grades you immediately on your pronunciation, showing you exactly what you need to work on. Fluenz on the other hand allows you to record your voice and listen to your recording next to a pre-recorded native speaker. In that way you can compare your pronunciation of the words to that of the native speaker. However it seems that the Rosetta Stone method is a tad more effective.
Nevertheless, after only two Fluenz lessons, I feel very comfortable and confident with what I have learned. Additionally, I am actually quite surprised by how much I've learned already. That fact alone makes me quite happy with the program. I feel like there is real value in what I've learned, meanwhile my brother hasn't touched Rosetta Stone in almost a year. He explained that once the concepts became more complex, the program became more difficult to follow and he lost confidence and motivation. I am excited every day to do my next Fluenz lesson. Whatever program you choose, congrats to you for taking the initiative and engaging in independent learning!
