Start slow and keep the pace.
Sometimes the excitement might lead you to want to learn many structures as fast as possible, but the best results will be given by a steady learning pace. So it is OK to start the usual simple things such as the ABC and numbers. It takes quite a bit of practice to remember those simple and basic structures.

Make a schedule for your learning and keep it. We all know that life in London is as busy as it can get, so make sure that you have a plan for your learning and you follow it.
Embrace the new language and culture.
Many students make a fundamental mistake when learning the language, they question why structures are different and refuse to assimilate them. Instead you should give yourself a favour and you should have an accepting attitude to the Italian grammar, and culture. Altogether this will enable you to learn faster.
Brush up your English grammar.
We noticed that sometimes adult students struggle to distinguish a verb from an adjective and if you are going to learn a new language you should brush up your grammar in English. Knowing what each piece of a sentence is will help you considerably when assimilating the new grammar.

Our students ask this question a lot, unfortunately we cannot answer it as everyone is different and everyone learn at different speed. On the other hand Italian share many common Latin vocabulary with the English language. If you pay enough attention you will see that you already know many words. Of course for the grammar is another story. However to get to a decent level of independently you do not need to master all tenses at once, but just few of the basic ones.
