Online Italian Club is a free website with grammar, listening, conversation, vocabulary, and reading resources for A1 – C2 Italian learners. It is well organized and even has a checklist to keep track of your progress.

The site’s major advantage is its abundance of exercises for various grammar topics. There are over 200 listening comprehension exercises with multiple-choice questions and full transcripts, not to mention another 30 articles about the history of Rome with accompanying audio, and 60 conversations that gradually increase in difficulty. Some of the dialogues have accompanying conversation prompts so you can have a similar conversation yourself with a language exchange partner or a tutor.

Online Italian club also offers private Italian lessons, but these are about three times more expensive than your average iTalki teacher.

Each CEFR level has a series of lessons with grammar explanations, listening comprehension exercises with multiple-choice questions, and quizzes. All of these activities can be accessed individually as well.

Some of the A1 exercises will be difficult for total beginners, as they are entirely in Italian. Nevertheless, with the Readlang Chrome Extension and the transcript, the immersive environment may be an enjoyable challenge.

Overall, the Online Italian Club is an engaging and high-quality supplement to your Italian studies. You can also check out One World Italiano for more free resources, also that site is a bit unorganized.

The current rating is our best estimate. We haven’t had the opportunity yet to more thoroughly evaluate this resource, as we do for our full reviews.

I’d just like to say I’m a great fan of onlineitalianclub, both as a learner and a teacher. Yes, the lessons might be a bit more expensive, but my Italian teacher for 3 years (sadly, she’s currently unable to continue because she’s teaching elsewhere) was not only a lovely person, but very very helpful to me, both in my learning capacity and in helping me with grammar questions to teach my own students. If she is a true example, the teaching quality is top on. I have rested my Italian classes and I’m now taking advantage of a Spanish tutor they have to try to bring my Spanish conversation up to a better level, and she is equally good, and equally nice.

One thing you should know – and report – is that there is a sale 4 times a year where everything is 20% off, and the club actively encourages you to stock up on your lessons then, so you never have to pay full price for the lessons if you don’t want to. Also, you didn’t mention the superb easy readers with Soudcloud tracks. Most weeks there is either a 20% off, or sometimes a 50% off offer on the ebook (different levels figure).

PS, just in case your wondering, Daniel Stephens, who runs the club, isn’t paying me a penny for this review, nor does he even know I’m writing… just in case you wondered…

Oops – I’ve just been back to the site, and I now note that you can get a discount for buying up to 30 lessons in advance. I know we may not all be able to fork out £480 all at once, but I’ve just worked out that, with the sale discount applied, that would seem to work out at around £12.80 a half-hour lesson. Do show the whole picture when you write these reviews – we know your qualities and we rely on you for your usually excellent service.
