I Learned Italian in 7 Days - Part I

You can watch Part II here →

& Part III here →


I think the way languages are taught in school is backwards to say the least. Very inefficient and demoralizing.

However, speaking a foreign language can be a really fun, exciting experience and a way to expand your world view. I wanted to both share how I approach language learning and also see how far I could push things in one week.

I LEARNED HOW TO SPEAK ITALIAN IN 7 DAYS.. (tips & conversation in italiano)

Yup.. you didn't read that wrong. This video is really me learning to speak Italian in 7 days! I'm going to take you through my week by studying, using apps, teaching you guys some tips, and also have a conversation in Italiano to truly see how far I've progressed in the language. I've been trying to learn Italian now for the past 2 years because my boyfriend's family doesn't speak English, but I'm still a noob.. I can understand a lot of the language by guessing but I actually can't speak a word of it, nor can I hold a conversation. It wasn't until I saw Nathanial Drew's video: that I decided to take on the challenge and see how fluent I can become if I take learning seriously. A huge motivation for me was the fact that Francesco's friend (who is also called Francesco) was coming to visit us on the weekend, so I thought it was the perfect time!!

PS thanks again francesco for being in my video!! his instagram is @comeseavessiaccettato_

Did They Learn a Language in a Week? A response to Nathaniel Drew and Ikenna.

Nathaniel Drew and Ikenna both claimed in YouTube video titles that they learned a language in a week. Let's investigate how they then go about backing down from that claim.



Using any of these links for the services described really helps me out and will allow me to keep making the best language learning videos out there.

Patreon:
You can read my more in depth thoughts on the front lines of language learning and help me do this more often and one day get to make a video in Sweden here:


LingQ is a platform that teaches you a new language by reading material with your native language as a support. I don't like the design but the technique is very effective:


The native speaker tutoring shown in my videos is through iTalki. You can get $10 credit applied to your account when you make your first purchase, or you can just check it out for free using this link, which also helps me out by allowing me to take more language lessons:


Do you like foreign language TV shows and movies? Check out the channel on which I review ONLY those shows:


DO YOU LIKE THE MUSIC I USE? You have excellent taste, and should checkout Soundstripe, the excellent service which I get my music from. It also helps me out immensely and if you use the code LAMONT you get 10%:



Nathaniel Drew (Italian) and Ikenna (Spanish) have popular YouTube channels on which they talk about a variety of topics, but Ikenna especially talks about language learning and how to learn foreign languages.
Nathaniel Drew has videos called 'I Learned Italian in 7 Days' and Ikenna has videos called 'I Learned Spanish in 7 Days'. Neither of these claims is true, and Nathaniel Drew and Ikenna both know that perfectly well. Ikenna at least doesn't try to actually claim that this is what happened; except for the blatantly misleading title, but Nathaniel softly qualifies his claim many times by saying that he's been learning Italian for 18 months. Italian in 18 months is very different to Italian in 7 days.
Ikenna claims to have the secret to learn a language quickly by yourself but is stretching that claim a very long way in this 3 video series.

How I Learned Italian in 1 Month (9 Unique Ways to Learn a New Language FAST)

**DISCLAIMER**: Due to recent comments, I am not preaching that you can reach fluency in ANY language in just one month. The beautiful complexities of any language take years to learn and it's best if you actually immerse yourself in that culture among native speakers. However, since many of us don't have the capability of that method, I provided some tips to simply learn faster than using Duolingo once a day. I'm no professional, but I was very pleased with the progress I made in just one month. Again, I'm not fluent, just an ambitious and happy language learner. ;)

Do you want to learn a new language, but have no idea where to start?

I have 9 helpful tips for you to not only learn a new language but to become conversational.

Last month I embarked on a language learning journey and challenged myself to learn as much Italian as I could in one month. It wasn't easy, but I learned a lot about how to learn a new language and decided to share my tips with you! I'm excited to continue learning this beautiful language and hopefully, I'll continue to add more languages to my list. Again, I didn’t become fluent in one month, as it’s impossible to understand all the intricacies in such a short time. I’m still learning! Enjoy and check out my favorite resources below!

Study Italian With Me ???????? | My Daily Language Study Routine | Speaking Italian!

Today I'm sharing my language learning routine to show how I've been studying Italian for one hour almost every day. This video shows 3 language learning tips that incorporate reading comprehension, translating, speaking, pronunciation, and vocabulary study techniques. So take some notes in your language learning notebook and learn a new language with me! I hope this video helps increase your language learning motivation, so you can keep up your studies. Just remember never to force yourself to study, or else learning a new language will feel like a chore. There's no need to learn a new language fast, since learning a foreign language is a lifelong practice! Just do whatever activities feel best for you each day, whether that's reading, watching movies in Italian, studying grammar, speaking with your language partner, or reviewing vocab! I hope you find these tips helpful and let me know what other language learning videos you want to see from me in the future!

CAN YOU LEARN A NEW LANGUAGE IN 7 DAYS?

Learning a new language in one week is a massive undertaking, but with this challenge I wanted to see if it was possible to learn enough basic Greek to talk to a stranger and ask them if I could draw their portrait--all in just seven days, starting from ZERO!

Obviously fluency in a foreign language takes longer than a week, but the goal of this challenge was to see how much language learning I could cram into 7 days, and how far that effort would take me--could I strike up a conversation with a stranger on the street and get them to agree to a quick portrait drawing? At first it didn't seem possible... Before this week, I would have said that's impossible!

Quick backstory: I wanted to learn Greek because Lou and I are going to be spending our entire summer in Greece living out our van life dreams of sunshine and endless beaches. And while learning a new language can definitely be overwhelming, I think if you make your goals attainable and specific you'll be shocked at how much you can learn in a short amount of time.

The way languages are taught in school seems to focus so much attention on reading and writing, and I decided to do the exact opposite. Focus all my attention on speaking, simple get to know you phrases, and put all my effort towards a specific conversation - can I draw your portrait and are you alright with me filming.

Hope you enjoy all the nerves the comes with new languages and talking to strangers : )

Lots of love from Greece,
Dana (+ Lou)

I *tried* learning Portuguese in 7 days like Nathaniel Drew - Part I

I tried learning Portuguese in 7 days... so, how did it go?

*RESOURCES I USED*
Italki (an amazing place for finding a native teacher/speaking partner - I highly recommend Nuno Oliveira!):
Quizlet (the flashcard app I’ve been using):

*CHANNELS THAT HELPED*:
Portuguese Lab videos:
Portuguese With Carla:
Talk The Streets:
TedX:

Inspired by Nathaniel Drew's language learning, I wanted to see if learning Portuguese in a week is possible. Unlike @Nathaniel Drew , I'm not bilingual and don't speak fluent Spanish - a langugae with a lexical similarity of 89% to Portuguese. But, I am a linguist, and I do speak several languages, including fluent French.

So, I was curious what would happen if I tried learning Portuguese in 7 days. This video is all about my experience of teaching myself Portuguese, including how I taught myself Portuguese, the approach I took, and my thoughts on whether you can learn a language quickly by yourself.

I *tried to* Learn Italian in 30 Days - Part I

Ambitious I know...
(I obviously didn't go into this thinking I could become fluent I just thought it would be fun to make a daily thing out of it for a whole month!)

Learning Italian in 30 days was actually really fun to throw myself into so I hope you enjoyed the video. I obviously didn't become fluent, but realistically that wasn't going to happen... I'm still pleased with the progress I did make and I'm excited to share the results of learning Italian in such a short period of time with you in the second part of this video which should be out in a few days :)

As a reminder of what I said at the end: please subscribe if you enjoy my content, there should be plenty coming soon and even though the quality could still be improved lol, it does take an awfully long time to make each and every one of these videos. That said, I love it and obviously don't need numbers to make it worthwhile (you're rambling Matt) anyway what I'm trying to say is thanks and any support would be appreciated :)

Here are the links:

Instagram:

Also can't believe I said 'k-indy' instead of 'kw-indy' for 'quindi' at the end there... that's just embarrassing!

The resources I mention in the video:
The 1000 most common words -
Quizlet -
Duolingo -
The Textbook -
The Collins book I don't really recommend but will link in case you're interested... -

That's all, I think, please don't hesitate to ask me something in the comments if there's something else you want to know or want me to elaborate on.

Matt :)

I Learned French in 7 Days

I wanted to embark on a personal challenge to see how much French I could learn in just 7 days. In this video, I share my experiences with this challenge, my thoughts on language acquisition, and reject the traditional norms associated with learning a new language. I was inspired by Nathaniel Drew's video.
