In collaboration with the European Institute of Design (IED) and Ovosodo, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation has created the app ItaliAmo, a free A1 level Italian language and culture course for iOS and Android devices.
The aim of the course is to offer a new interactive tool for teaching the Italian language and promoting Italian cultural and production excellence abroad.
The course, available free on Google Play and the App Store, is divided into ten stages set in different Italian cities and regions and is designed like a trip around Italy along with Leo and Lisa, two characters that are modern versions of Leonardo da Vinci and Mona Lisa. Each stage is in turn divided into four sections: dialogue, expressions, exercises, culture.
Available languages: English and Chinese.
Through the App, users can learn interactively the basics of the Italian language and at the same time discover the artistic and cultural wealth of our country as well as the excellence of 100% Italian production. It is a very innovative project in the field of foreign language learning, adopting the very latest in technology, graphics and design.
