LEARN ITALIAN
WITH THE
3D METHOD

and feel at home in Italy!

TRANSFORM  THE WAY  YOU  LEARN ITALIAN

Learning Italian is an adventure.
It can be overwhelming and frustrating  or exciting and inspiring.


In our Italian language programs we guide you towards Italian fluency with our unique, comprehensive 360° approach: 
the 3D Method for a holistic learning experience.



7-week Italian students talk about the school and the 3D Method

What is different about the 3D method?

If you have tried learning Italian (or any other language) you have probably noticed that traditional teaching approaches rarely address
 the actual challenges of adult learnears.

  •  how  to learn and use grammar effectively.
  •  how to memorise and retain new vocabulary.
  • how to bring Italian into your everyday reality.
  • how to start thinking in Italian.

I wanted my students to have a different experience.
That's why I created the 3D Method. 

Watch the video below to discover the story of the 3D Method. 


Traditional teaching     

 vs.

The 3D Method

  • focus only on the language, never on the learner.
  • expect you to absorb information instinctively, in a child-like way, not taking into consideration that adults learn in a different way.
  • never teach you HOW to learn and retain new grammar and vocabulary in order to retain and apply it. You are expected to figure it out. 
  • develop your passive language skills (reading and listening) before your active skills (speaking and writing), slowing down your overall progress.
  • treat the language as an end in itself, and teach it as if it where just about memorising a bunch of words and grammar rules. 
  • almost never take into consideration  the transformational and identitary aspect of learning  Italian. 
The traditional approach often leads to overwhelm, frustration and anxiety that become part of the learning experience.

  • We focus on the student's experience, not just the language.
  • We take into consideration the neurological and psycholinguistic aspects of adult language learning. These aspects are integrated into our programs and activities. 
  • We provide you with learning tools and techniques to structure and accelerate your path to fluency. In addition to learning Italian ,our students learn how to learn a language! 
  •  We make sure you develop your language skills (reading, writing,  listening, speaking  simultaneously.  We also consider THINKING an active language skill. 
  • We see the language as a communication tool, a means to an end, and not an end goal in itself. Because that is how your brain perceives it. 
  • We recognise that learning Italian means acquiring a new linguistic and cultural identity. It's a transformational experience, and needs to be treated as such! 
Students who learn Italian with the
3D Method enjoy a holistic experience and build their Italian identity, as well as language skills.

You are in good hands


Hi, I'm Tania Troyan.

I am the founder of 7-week Italian and the creator of the 3D method.
I've always been fascinated by the mechanisms of the human brain involved in language learning and by the dynamics of reaching full proficiency in non-native languages.

I've spent over two decades now exploring those mechanisms, while focusing mainly on my biggest passion: the  Italian language.  💗

I realised something was missing in the way languages are traditionally taught to adults.

There was a need for a teaching methodology focused on the student and their challenges, and not just on the mechanisms of the language.

And that's how the 3D method was born: a structured teaching methodology for holistic language acquisition.

It's my way to make a difference and help my students transform their lives by acquiring a new linguistic identity and feeling at home in Italy. 

 A few more words from our graduates...

We believe that to reach fluency you need to grow your language skills simultaneously,  use the language as a communication tool and make it relevant to your personal experience.

Our online Italian courses are a unique combination of self-paced lessons, video, audio, downloads, text materials, live sessions and conversation practice.

What our students say

"I found that I was learning lots of things that I never quite understood from my other teachers. The holistic method they use really makes a difference! You learn through exploration of the Italian culture. I highly recommend this course. I really think they have done something special here."

Jeff H.

US/Italy

"Each week was more exciting than the previous as I could really feel that I was getting the flow of the language. The challenges that were set out as an assignment were a great way for me to see what I had accomplished at the end of each week, leaving me with a feeling of satisfaction."

Gina B.

South Africa

"My first time doing an internet course and I found it much more effective and enjoyable than in-person lessons! The variety of delivery methods from video to audio clips to charts all in one lesson really helped me stay focused. Tania's explanations are clear and well put. She really keeps you engaged!"

Emily C.

US

"A great course and very well structured! I learned a lot! I live in Rome and am married to an Italian! I speak Italian at a basic level and the course has sharpened a lot of things. Even though I passed the language test for Italian citizenship, I feel there is still much to improve and learn. "

Irit C.

Israel/Italy

"Frankly, we have tried several online programs to learn Italian. We have gotten more out of this 7-week course than all of the others put together. A variety of methods are used including audio, video, exercises, cheat sheets, explanations and writing. Thank you for providing such an in-depth program!"

Janet C.

US/Italy

"I've been studying Italian now for three years on  apps, and although I had learned a lot, I learned a ton of new things with this course. It definitely made a lot of the rules make more sense and gave me an even greater foundation for my continued Italian language journey."

Frank O.

Each program is a structured step-by-step learning experience, enriched with a wealth of culturally relevant content,  functional vocabulary and contest-related exercises.

Benvenuti! Welcome to 7-week Italian!

Why 7 weeks?
If you understand our approach and the 3D method, you probably realise we can't be promising that you will fully master Italian in just 7 weeks.

But...

   It's the perfect time frame for a language course. 
Why?
 It is the time necessary to our brain to rewire,  by creating and reinforcing new neural pathways.

Applied to language learning this means that 49 days are a great time frame to transition to a next proficiency level.  

All our courses are in fact 7 weeks!

 
At 7-week Italian (7WIT) we create and deliver self-paced Italian language programs, with a unique mix of live coaching, community learning and personal accountability.
 
Our courses are designed with a great passion for Italian and are based on our unique teaching methodology
the 3D Method for a holistic learning experience.

We are passionate about Italian culture and we believe that language is its most faithful mirror. 


You will find a wealth of culturally relevant content in our courses, like art, history and linguistic mentality, 
together with functional vocabulary, context-related exercises and useful linguistic survival techniques.
 

Our students acquire efficient learning tools and set up the correct mindset for a result-oriented and
 rewarding learning process. They enjoy the benefits of a supportive community and build their
 language skills  in a  safe environment.
