I have started to learn 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 to 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 PhD 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!
Learning never ends, you should always keep learning. But the more important is to create a value from what you've learned!
