Can you become fluent in 1 month?

The answer to the question above is short and simple: NO! More and more we see the ads of learning apps saying :"become fluent in 1 month" or "speak the language in few weeks". While it's possible that some particularly skilled people (a small minority) can learn and speak a language fluently in few months, any serious teacher has to be honest and say that learning a language in 1 or 2 months is nearly impossible.

Follow the explanation and exercises below: -PREPOSIZIONI SEMPLICI: IN/ A/ DI/ SU/ DA (in/ to/ of/ on/ from) -ARTICOLI DETERMINATIVI (THE): IL / LA/ L'/ LO/ I / GLI/ LE Example: IN THE In + La = Nella Sono nella piscina In + la piscina = nella piscina In + IL= Nel Sono nel parcheggio
