  1. I’m a student and my dream is to go to Italy to study art. How do I get the Italian Art Vocabulary? Do I need to become a VIP Member? Can you do more lessons about Italian art? — Thank you I love you Jane & Massimo.

  2. Good idea! Now, how about a lesson (maybe a video) with italian body language and hand gestures?

  3. Jane and Massimo, this is a fun lesson! The idea of making a lesson about insulting someone without using bad words is just cool.

  4. I’m a VIP Member and have a question about back to basics the verb ‘andare’. Does “Loro sono andati” become “loro sono andate” if the subject is feminine?

  5. Great site to learn Italian language. The learning center works for me: I just listen and learn easily. Keep up the good work!
