Why an Italian study planner?​

Learning a language takes time and money. A lot! So, it’s natural to look for information about how long it’s supposed to take and how much it should cost. Especially, if you’ve just started to learn Italian, or if it’s your first foreign language, you probably have many questions about how to study, what resources to use, etc. However, I couldn’t find a serious Italian study planner that could answer these questions concretely and accurately. That’s why I made this free online tool!

Italian study time calculator

I created this free calculator to give you an idea of how long it will take you to reach a certain level of proficiency. It only takes 3 minutes!

After you submit the form below, I’ll create your free lifetime account to store your study plan so that you may review it at any time. I’ll take you to your dashboard where you’ll find all my free resources.

On your dashboard, you’ll get to take some of my courses for free. I’ll also send you my best offers and free resources by email. You may opt out at any time.

Yes, all this is free for you!

Intensive
Intensive

In the intensive plan, you commit 2 hours per day.

Diversify your study activities to cover all the language skills that you need: speaking, listening, writing, and reading.

Even though you could argue that more your study, the faster you learn, I wouldn't recommend studying more than a couple of hours a day because the gain from extra time gradually gets smaller.

At the end of this form, you'll get a detailed weekly plan with all the study activites you need to reach your goal. 100% free!

Regular
Intensive

With a regular plan, you practice 1 hour a day, every day.

Taking 2 live 1-on-1 lessons per week with a qualified teacher or an experienced native tutor is a good pace to practice speaking and get feedback.

This plan is the closest to the one I follow myself and I can assure that you'll make steady progress.

At the end of this form, you'll get a detailed weekly plan with all the study activites you need to reach your goal. 100% free!

Intensive

There's plenty of free resources online to make the free plan viable.

My proven study plan templates to master Italian

As a serial language learner, I know what to do in order to master a language.

Honestly, I don’t even build a plan because everything comes out naturally to me.

However, if you’re not familiar with languages, you need a self-study plan to make the most of your study time, choose the right resources, and keep motivation (why learn Italian?).

That’s why I made these study plan templates for the Italian language, each with a different combination of time commitment and budget.

Else, I strongly recommend you to use the planner. In 3 minutes, you’ll know how much time and money you need to invest in learning Italian to meet your goals.

What’s the difference between study schedule templates

All these Italian study schedule templates include my favorite resources to learn Italian.

I chose them to cover every aspect of the language, with a focus on speaking, which is often overlooked both by students and language courses.

The main difference is how much time and money you’re willing to commit to language learning.

  • Regular plan: to make steady progress
  • Intensive plan: for faster progress
  • Light plan: for the busy learner
  • Free plan: when your budget is 0
  • Free light plan: for the casual learner

Now, let’s look into these 5 Italian study schedule examples!

Is a language learning template enough?

A language study template doesn’t just list all your learning activities but also shows how often and when you’re supposed to do them.

These activities should cover all the skills that you need to learn: reading, listening, writing and speaking.

If you find that you are lacking a particular learning type, you will need to find a learning activity that can supplement it.

Your weekly planner is for you to check that you’re sticking with your study plan. Each time you perform a learning activity, you can put a mark next to it. At the end of the week, you can count up the marks against your target figure.

Your planner should be between 1-2 months long, no longer. In fact, you need to review your study plan every couple of months. This is particularly true in the first year when you are developing rapidly. The activity or resource that helped last month may no longer be relevant.

This is how you learn a language in hours, not years.
