Great way to learn Italian!

I have taken Incubator, Accelerator and Momentum this year and have learned so much. Still trying to finish Momentum as it is quite challenging but the courses are first-rate. The lesson videos are fun and there are lots of exercises to help you get a good grasp on the material. Tania and Elisabetta are excellent and enthusiastic instructors. I highly recommend 3D Italian if you are truly serious about learning the language.

3D Italian is terrific!

After years of online Italian courses, textbooks, and private lessons, I found 3D Italian. I started with Incubator and Accelerator and just completed Momentum. Halfway through Accelerator I spent six weeks in Italy and for the first time my ability to communicate improved. With Momentum I had the sense of things coming together, with listening comprehension improving and grammar becoming more automatic. My Pausa Caffe study group with colleagues reached a new level of conversation and new learning. We are teaching each other! Tania's approach to teaching and learning Italian is profoundly different from traditional approaches. Learning is based on neurolinguistic principles, in other words, on how people really learn. We avoid "binge learning" and memorizing material without emotional context. Tania has designed a program that pays attention to emotional issues in learning and avoids overwhelm. I highly recommend 3D Italian, and I look forward to continuing with Tania and Elizabeth.

Momentum = Positively Motivating!

As a self-learner for years Momentum was an engaging and enjoyable way to review the basics and also learn something new. It was highly effective and useful that each lesson week builds upon previous material to reinforce old and new concepts.. I really liked the small group setting of Pausa Caffè each week to share and learn with other language learners. Grazie Tania!

An unforgettable experience

How difficult it is to learn a new language, it is a sentence you will hear from anyone who learns a new language, from everyone, but not from Tanya's students!!! Because the teaching methods here are very different from the traditional teaching methods. Here you have fun, play, solve crossword puzzles, and even take coffee breaks in small groups. Highly recommended!

Fantastic Momentum!

I have thoroughly enjoyed my journey so far with the 7-week Italian school. It is so evident that much thought, dedication and experience has gone into the formulation of each course. Every lesson has taught me something new in a well rounded, holistic way. I have nothing but high praises and enthusiastic applause for all the courses that I have been through, and I would be amiss if I didn't share what touched me the most.... Ta-da, drum roll....... It's Tania 's passion for the language, history, and culture and teaching it to others in a way no one else does. And her passion is contagious and I don't want to ever say Goodbye for good. Thank you Tania and Elisabetta from the bottom of my heart, I shall remain eternally grateful for holding my hands on this Italian journey and guiding me through and I sincerely wish our paths cross soon someday. Grazie mille.

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.  πŸ’—

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. 

Benvenuti! Welcome to 7-week Italian!

At 7-week Italian (7WIT) we create self-paced Italian language courses, with a unique mix of live coaching and community learning.
We design our all our courses with a great passion for Italian and with our unique teaching methodology, the 3D Method, for holistic learning experience.

Why 7 weeks?   It's the perfect time frame for an Italian language course. It is the time necessary for our brain to rewire and, applied to language learning, to transition to the next proficiency level.  

We are passionate about Italian culture and believe that language is its most faithful mirror. You will find a wealth of culturally relevant content in our courses, together with functional vocabulary, contest-related exercises and useful linguistic survival techniques.

Following our courses you will acquire efficient learning tools and set up the correct mindset for a result-oriented and rewarding learning process.
