Default I need to learn Italian quick

Can any one suggest an app or other program to tech basis Italian quickly? I spend a lot of time in the car so could listen to a CD or app on the phone. I've got two months to learn the basics.

To tag on to the OP anyone know of a way to learn Spanish really quick? I’ve got a Spanish final tomorrow and I don’t speak much Spanish.

How to speak italian:

1. Speak loud and fast
2. Wave your arms around alot
3. Some bippity boppities won't hurt



I know just enough Italian and just enough Spanish to be dangerous...what sucks is when I start combining them when we go to Italy!

My suggestion would probably be Rosetta Stone, because I don't really know of anything else. It's something I want to learn as well. I love Italy.

Why you need to learn it so fast?

Un caffe, per favore is 90% of what you need, and ciao/grazie/arrivederci.

With those phrases I more or less survived.

Bestest and fastest way is to find a long-haired dictionary.

If all else fails you, have someone tie your arms behind your back and “poof”, you’re an Italian with a speech impediment !

Go to a smaller city/town in Italy for one or two weeks and take an all day, every day immersion class.

I would try 501 Italian Verbs. The Spanish version is very good.

Dialects vary from area to area. Can't get a one size fits all but you can get one size fits most. As stated in the tourist towns they speak English. I would speak to them in my broken Italian and they would answer me in English.
