Yabla Italian

Yabla is a platform designed to teach languages through video courses.

The current languages available are Spanish, French, German, Chinese, English, and Italian.

Yabla offers a huge collection of videos about very different topics. You can find videos on art, culture, history, economy, society, music, and many more.

The course is structured as follows: when you purchase it, you have access to a set of videos. You can watch the videos (with or without subtitles) and do some exercises at the end.

You can choose the speed of the video, play on loop the parts you didn’t understand, and practice through some exercises.

For example, you can hear a clip from the video and then fill the subtitles with the missing words. Or you can type a sentence that you hear in the video.

And when you click on a word, you add it to your Flashcard section, where you can practice your vocabulary.

What’s wrong with Yabla

Yabla uses a lot of video material through which you can improve your listening skills and learn new vocabulary.

However, what I see is that there’s little chance to repeat what you hear, which is one of the quickest and most effective ways to actually speak a new language.

The exercises allow you to practice your listening comprehension, but you don’t have the chance to speak along the audio and repeat the sentences – which is the best way to actively review what you’ve learned.

Additionally, the videos are designed for intermediate and advanced learners, and beginners may find it hard to understand them.

A Yabla alternative for the Italian language

If you’re looking for a valid alternative to Yabla for learning Italian, you can have a look at Think in Italian courses. They’re designed by an Italian native speaker who is, first of all, a language learner.

The courses focus on learning Italian in all its aspects, with a particular focus on the speaking part.

The courses are divided into grammar notes, Italian readings(Leggi con me), and an audio course (Ripeti con me).

How to Learn Languages Fast

Ripeti con me focuses on listening to a sentence and repeating it after a short time interval. In this way, your brain has the time to actively process the information.

That’s an approach based on spaced repetition system that allows the information to stick into your long-term memory.

The way the course works allows you to acquire confidence in the speaking process – you’ll see that after a few lessons, you will be thinking in Italian and speaking fluently!

Additionally, the course is designed for all types of learners. So, even if you’re a total beginner, you can find the proper resources to start learning Italian for real.
