Instagram and social media are very helpful in language learning. You can engage with individuals who are sharing and posting photos and stories to various platforms, and this can be helpful in building your vocabulary.
I follow an interesting account on Instagram called @italianwithdavide.
He offers online courses for students of various levels. With the pandemic still swirling around Europe, it may take a few seasons before travel and life return to normal. Being able to practice and experience the Italian language virtually can be a great way to improve your language skills.
Davide’s courses open up for registration at various times during the year, and one such window is open now. If you use Instagram, please check out his account to get a sense of his style and delivery. He does a great job of explaining Italian language and grammar, and there are lots of great videos and reels to help with pronunciation.
PS: I’m not affiliated with him, but I like the way he teaches. Language learning requires engaging not just your eyes with reading but also listening and speaking - it’s the best way to improve and build your skills in the language.
PPS: The last few days have been hectic as I have been grading student papers and assignments. Now that the semester has concluded, I will be publishing more updates!
