Seven years ago I spent three and a half months living in Siena attending language school and my Italian was great! In the years that followed I dabbled with studying and I still had an okay base knowledge of it. It was hard to stay focused though, speaking English all day. More recently I've fallen off the wagon completely with lessons which is sad, because I want to speak Italian fluently. So to supercharge my language learning for 100 days I'm going to undertake some form of Italian lesson for 30 minutes per day (be it online or reading aloud). I'll then pick one verb to write about in my summary.


Day 25

So, I'd moved from Duolingo to doing Pimsluer lessons. I'd resisted committing to Pimsluer as it's somewhat expensive (albeit awesome). I'd decided to purchase the downloads as I needed them, rather than purchasing all phases at the same time. This morning, confirmed by a 20 minute online chat with iTunes, the developer has removed Pimsluer Italian from the New Zealand iTunes store. I'll head back to Duolingo until I figure something else out.
