Ciao e benvenuto :-)
(Hello and welcome)
There is nothing more thrilling than being able to speak to the locals in their own language when you visit a foreign country. Well, now you can experience that amazing feeling too!
My name is Kieran Ball and I’ve been teaching foreign languages in my hometown for over fifteen years. I love languages, I love learning and I love teaching. I also love chocolate, but this isn’t really the place to discuss my chocoholism!
I created 3 Minute Italian as a way to make learning Italian easier than ever before and accessible to anybody, especially people who have tried and failed in the past. My course is perfect for the complete beginner as I break down the Italian language into tiny chunks that I show you how to build back together again in a logical, simple to understand way. You can go from knowing no Italian at all to putting together your own sentences in just a few minutes. Watch the free preview lessons below and you’ll see what I mean.
TRY THE FREE PREVIEW LESSONS
I really want everybody to see that they can learn to speak Italian, so I’ve turned the first fifteen videos of this course into free previews, meaning you can watch them without even signing up. If nothing else, I just want you to see how easy it is to learn Italian.
HOW DOES 3 MINUTE ITALIAN WORK?
As the name suggests, each lesson in this course lasts just three minutes (more or less!). In each lesson, you learn a tiny chunk of Italian that you can use to build sentences. As you work through the course, you learn more and more little chunks and your sentences will gradually get longer and longer.
The chunks that you learn in the first lessons are carried through to the last lessons. This means you don’t have to worry about trying to remember everything; you will get so much opportunity for practice that you will find the words and phrases just sink into your brain.
The lessons in this course are focused, practical and effective, and you will build language skills that you can use straight away in real-world situations. You will be able to speak Italian comfortably and with confidence whenever you’re in a Italian speaking country.
What will you learn in this course:
- Speak Italian confidently and comfortably in everyday situations
- Understand what's being said back to you
- Be more than just an average tourist when travelling to Italian speaking countries
- Go from complete beginner to building your own sentences after the very first lesson
- Build a solid base vocabulary of words and phrases you can use straight away in the real world
- Understand and use grammatical and linguistic features of the Italian language with ease
- Understand the structure of the Italian language
- Give your opinions in Italian
- Greet the locals when you are in an Italian speaking country
What are the prerequisites for this course?
- The good thing about this course is that it is taught under the assumption that you know no Italian and nothing about languages
- Everything is explained clearly and thoroughly without the use of confusing terminology

I’m Kieran and I’m a language tutor based in the UK, and I also create online courses and write books to make language learning accessible to all.
My books and online courses are based on the methodology I developed for teaching languages, which I've been using in all my classes for many years. The methodology will get you speaking quickly, without the struggle normally associated with language learning.
I’ll not bore you with my life story or intricate details of the history of the methodology; I know you probably just want to start learning now, so I’ll let you get on with it.
I have created three series of language courses available in French, Spanish, German, Italian and Portuguese. They're called: '3 Minute Languages', 'Building Structures' and 'Quick Guides'.
3 Minute Languages
The 3 Minute Languages courses are perfect for the complete beginner. They will get you speaking a language from scratch, assuming you know absolutely nothing. You will be amazed at how quickly you’re able to put sentences together. And you will memorise new words and phrases easily without even trying.
