    Learning basic Italian?

    Any suggestions for learning some basic Italian without spending a bunch of money?

    Grazie!

    Look st www.duolingo.com. You can learn the words and pronunciation that you want. Write down the words in a small tablet and bring with you. You really only need to learn some basic words. In the big cities in restaurants and stores most speak some English. When you get out in the small villages the opposite is true.

    Thanks, Andy.

    I thought that would be the case. But just as in SBH, I like to make the effort...

    Try the (free) app "Memrise". Someone I know really liked it. I was going to try to learn some French with it, but I've sort of forgotten about it (until now).
