Buongiorno! For an upcoming feature, dealnews will be reviewing and evaluating different methods to learn a language. Starting today, and continuing over the next month, three of our editors will each take a different approach to learning Italian. Jeffrey Contray will be using Rosetta Stone's online software; Louis Ramirez will be using Pimsleur Basic Italian audio lessons; and Jeff Somogyi will be using whatever he can find for free online. (Podcasts, mostly.) In a month's time, they'll all take a standardized written exam to see which method yields the best results. In the mean-time, check out each of the participant's blogs for (in)frequent updates on their progress. Ciao!
