Why is this Italian language program so unique?

Because I created it together with my students, based on their needs, interests, questions, difficulties and cultural curiosities.

Then, with my team, we shaped and tweaked it until it became a  truly transformational experience for our students.

a mix of guided self-paced and live tutoring, assignment feedback, simultaneous skill growth, group conversation practiceaccountability and a supportive community!

to bring you closer to your Italian dream and your Italian identity.

Finally a course that helps

This course and the 3D method far exceeded my expectations. I would recommend this course to anyone no matter their age who wants to being their Italian language journey. This course keeps you accountable while not overwhelming you. The 3D method helped me finally overcome issues I've had for years while trying to learn another language. The Friday grammar sessions alone are worth the price!

Amazing course!

Adult learning is different and the 3D method fully addresses that process. This gives us a good chance to actually learn and stick with it. For some reason, I really enjoyed the “games”. For my personally, that was a good challenge and … fun. The variety of materials is excellent. I have done other online courses and, while the one was good, it was, in my opinion, starting too close to the “beginning” for adults. 3D puts us in there and has us interact right away. I like the ability to watch the Grammar Clinics later. This is a big help when schedules don’t match. You do encourage us to speak but I do wish you would get your inner nun on and smack us/me with a ruler. It’s easy for me to do it privately but that doesn’t really help in the big picture. I recommend this to … everyone wanting to learn Italian.

3D Italian course

I highly recommend this course if you want to have a good foundation to learning Italian. I found that Tania and Elisabetta are excellent tutors and give plenty of guidance. Expect to work and to gain most from the course, commit sufficient time to study. Hopefully I shall take Tania's advice when travelling to Rome in January. "Puoi ripetere per favor?". Grazie mille Tania e Elisabetta.

I have learnt so much!

Having bought a house in Italy and moved here full time for a year I needed to be able to communicate in Italian. I have done many face to face and online courses but none of them gave me any structure to learning the language or taught me the basics. I quickly became despondent and demotivated. 7 week Italian has been a game changer and I have loved the course which makes you use all your skills, listening, reading, writing and speaking. You can work the course at your own pace which is interactive, colourful and includes videos, quizzes, dictation etc. There is a weekly grammar clinic which goes over the weeks learning and challenges and helps to keep you motivated. Once a week you can meet with fellow students in the pausa caffè to practice speaking. I cannot thank Tania and Elisabetta enough for the encouragement, motivation and clear teaching methods. Roll on the Accelerator course!

This is not "Italian made Easy"

This is not "Italian made Easy". Instead it is a thorough and systematic approach to learning Italian with a refreshing emphasis on speaking and writing (the hard bits!). The course requires commitment but systems are taught to cope with these demands. The course is interesting and engaging and the tutors helpful and supportive . (The only downside for me is my own inability to navigate Facebook).

Course exceeded my expectations!

Thank you to Tania and Elizabetta for a wonderful experience. This was my first course in Italian and my first experience learning a language online. The weekly exercises required a serious committment so it is important to have the time to devote to the course. The instructions are clear and the topics are interesting. I especially enjoyed the cultural lessons. There is plenty of opportunity to ask questions and you receive important feedback on your weekly assignments. Tania encourages you to reach for the stars and challenges you to step out of your comfort zone. It is fun to see others each week from around the world taking the journey with you. I have learned so much in 7 weeks and look forward to taking more classes using the 3D method.

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

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. 


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.

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