176: Is now a good time to learn another language?

<p>Denise asks: "Is now a good time to learn Italian?"</p> <h2>Episode Summary:</h2> <ul> <li>There's rarely a "right time"</li> <li>I usually suggest getting a language to an Upper-Intermediate level (B2) before starting another one</li> <li>However, Italian and Portuguese are closely related. You might not have to do as much study as you think.</li> <li>It might also be easier than learning English</li> <li>Spend a bit of time each day simply listening and reading to basic Italian. You don't have to do any speaking, or heavy study, just start to put it on the map</li> <li>Time will do the rest!</li> </ul> <h2>Resources Mentioned In Today's Episode:</h2> <ul> <li><a href="http://amzn.to/2gRcnf6">Italian Short Stories For Beginners</a> - my book of Italian stories!</li> </ul> <h2>Today's Quote:</h2> <blockquote>“I would rather die of passion than of boredom.” —Vincent van Gogh</blockquote> <h2>Start speaking today:</h2> <p>I’d like to thank <a href= "http://iwillteachyoualanguage.com/italkishownotes" target= "_blank">iTalki</a> for supporting the show.
