Why beginners should learn Italian with Berlitz
Italy is one of the most beautiful and historically rich countries in the world - not least because it is the country with the most UNESCO World Heritage Sites. To immerse yourself in the atmosphere of its incredible towns and villages, it is important to speak the local language in order to communicate with the locals.
