Is Italian difficult to learn?

Motivation really matters when learning a new language

One of the common questions people ask me is: is Italian difficult to learn?¬†Language is composed of many aspects: grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation,phonetics, spelling, punctuation. ¬†For sure, Italian has a complex verb structure and a rich variety of vocabulary, but that shouldn’t discourage you from learning it!If your first language is a romance language (e.g. French, Spanish, Catalan, Portuguese) you would find some similarities with Italian. The more you are exposed to a language (i.e. reading, listening, speaking) the easier and quicker would be to pick it up.
