I have started to learn the Italian language after giving the decision of moving in Milan. Actually, I believe learning Italian would be easier with the help of my French-speaking capability. In any case, I participated in Italian courses given by Italian Culture Institute located in Istanbul and I completed A1-1 and A1-2 courses. At the same time, I completed many online training activities in popular language apps such as Babbel and Busuu. Now, in Politecnico, I will continue to learn Italian thanks to the special Italian courses for international Ph.D. students. Until February 2018, there will be 4 hours, of course, each week. I hope to become able to communicate well with my Italian colleagues and professors as soon as possible!
