A great way to learn Italian!

Tania's 3D method for teaching Italian is a science-based approach that really works. I've enjoyed the lessons, our weekly Zoom meeting with Tania as a group, and our weekly Pausa Caffè, where we meet with two or more people to practice "speaking" Italian with one another. My only regret is that I didn't study as consistently as I should have to get the most out of the courses, so I'm looking forward to taking Ripasso and reviewing what we've learned so far.

If you want to learn Italian, do this course!

I have just finished the Accelerator course and have found it fantastic. It exceeded my expectations. Tania is a great teacher, she has a way of explaining things that makes it very easy to understand. I love that the course is multi-media. I find it a really fun and interesting way to learn online. I have done courses online before and found them boring, but the way this course is presented is fun and very enjoyable. It makes it easier to learn Italian because it doesn't feel like hard work. Tania seems to have thought of everything. She has created a great feeling of community. We do a Pausa Cafe (which is a conversation group) every week. It's great fun, we have become good friends in our group. I live in Italy and have studied Italian before but before I started studying with Tania I was nervous to speak because I was afraid I'd make a mistake. Doing this course has given me the confidence to just go for it. Now I am much more confident speaking Italian and even get compliments on how good my Italian is!! I think the best part of the course for me has been meeting others living in Italy and learning Italian. We share the same frustrations and struggles and support each other to improve. Thanks Tania and Elisabetta for your thoughtfulness and support. I'm looking forward to continuing my studies with you. Geraldine xx

Very highly recommended!

7-Week Italian Accelerator is an outstanding course. The creator of the course, Tania Troyan, has used her knowledge of linguistics and neuropsychology to develop an Italian language learning course that is based on how people actually learn a foreign language. As a psychologist with a background in neuropsychology, I recognize how completely different her method is from all the others that I tried over the past 10 years, including online courses and private lessons. As an instructor, Tania is rigorous, enthusiastic, and encouraging. The course is three-dimensional, and a wonderful component of 7-Week Italian is the support and camaraderie created by the interaction of the students both online and in small study groups. I highly recommend the course. I could describe it as joyful after all the other approaches I have tried, and I can recognize real progress.

Highly recommended- love the approach and the course content!

I have loved every minute of Accelerator. Despite a challenging business travel schedule, I looked forward to the lessons and that gave me the incentive to fit them in! While I found it more challenging than the Incubator course, it has definitely propelled me forward and made me a lot more curious about the language. I am finding myself applying this brilliant method more and more outside what we are being taught. I am looking forward to taking the next step with Momentum. Thank you Tania and Elisabetta for your patience, encouragement and inspiration!

Would highly recommend this course to anyone who is serious about learning Italian!

The Accelerator is a well-planned and organized curriculum that encompasses many facets of the Italian language and culture. I found it to be more challenging than the Incubator in that there was even more content each week. Although I wasn't able to complete every lesson, I am committed to doing the next step, which is Ripaso and Momentum. Tania is a fabulous teacher, and her 3-D method makes so much sense. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is serious about learning Italian!

I would certainly recommend this course!

I found the course challenging but I kept going. Tania gives us great help and inspiration to keep going. I found that by revisiting and rewriting and using the audio I gradually progressed. I enjoyed my Pausa Caffè group chats. I would certainly recommend this course but you have to put the work in. Thank you Tania and Elisabetta.

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 for holistic language acquisition.  

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 years (over two decades actually -  sounds surreal!) exploring those mechanisms, focusing mainly on the Italian language, culture, history and art (things that are inseparable in life... and in my language programs).

 I have created the 3D method because I felt there was a need for a teaching methodology centred on what happens to the student and not just on what happens in the language.

My approach is structured and holistic. It's based on elements of neuroscience and provides tools and techniques to fast-track fluency in all language skills.

Every step of this journey will bring you closer to your goal: understanding, speaking and thinking in Italian.


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. 

Learning a language is acquiring a new linguistic and cultural identity. 
Our programs support you on this journey by developing your language skills simultaneously
 and exposing you to relevant cultural content.

OUR METHODOLOGY

At 7-week Italian we have developed a unique methodology that allows our students to undergo a 
holistic learning experience.  

We call it the 3D Method, because it is an all-encompassing methodology that involves the 3 dimensions of the learning process:  the language, the student, and the student's environment.

We believe that learning a language can be a rewarding and joyous process, and the results usually depend on the learning techniques and the methodology applied, rather just than on your personal aptitude or memory.  

By following the fundamentals of our methodology, adopting the right mindset and using the techniques we provide you can avoid overwhelm, grow your abilities steadily,  make measurable progress and enjoy using Italian from the very first steps.

 

growing language skills simultaneously 

Learning Italian means acquiring the 4 main language skills: reading, writing, listening comprehension and speaking.  Our courses allow the students to work on these skills simultaneously from the very beginning, in order to ensure a steady and balanced progress. There is one more skill we help to build into the process:  thinking in Italian from the very first steps, instead of translating from your native language. 

TREATING LANGUAGE AS COMMUNICATION TOOL

For the human brain language is a communication tool. Yet,  most teaching methods treat it as an end goal in itself. Our method uses language as a means to an end.  By using Italian to acquire and process information,  we make it relevant, engaging and memorable.   All our content is enriched with cultural references, because we believe Italian culture is paramount for gaining real mastery of the language.

making language relevant TO LEARNER'S REALITY

The relevance of the content that is being learned and the way they are structured to interact with the student's reality is paramount. It’s infinitely easier to process new words that are related to the student's interests, professional activity, future plans or everyday life situations.  This makes the process of language acquisition a more rewarding one, given the immediate use and relevance of the language.
