I'm finally going to learn to speak Italian and I'm using Instant Immersion. I only speak english and have never taken a foreign language class. Just curious to about how long it took any of you to learn from scratch. It's been two days and I'm picking up the basics quick. Of course everybody learns in different speeds, I'm just curious to how long it took anyone here, Thanks.

Update:

I'm working on it 2-3 hours a day

learn to understand the though patterns of the language. Don't try to make everything fit into your logic or what you think is common sense. You need to think in Italian when you speak it. Ignore people who say you need to think in English or link Italian words to an English one to remember it.

I am a Belgian who speaks Italian very good. I have visited Italy normally and feature noticeable thirteen of the 20 areas. With strangers so much Italians talk the common language. In small villages elder persons are most of the time now not in a position to talk it. I have additionally been a member of an Italian internet-web site within the USA. They had been all moment or 3rd iteration. Most of them didn't talk any Italian in any respect. A few spoke little or no. I needed to chat in English with them.

It is a lot harder then you think. Italian is a very difficult language, especially for an English speaking person.

The grammar is very complicated and bulky, the vocabulary is very rich...the words have gender and suffixes, there are 26 tenses....and verbs change in each one...

do not count on two Weeks, it is nonsense...

You need at least 5 years of studying and a couple of year in living in this country, to get some hold on it.

It took me 3 months at one hour per day to get a decent grasp of Dutch/Portuguese. If you have decent aptitude I think you could count on less than 2 months at that rate.

Here's an important Italian phrase: FORZA MILAN!!!
