Hey guys I'm a senior in high school and school ends in 3 days. For some unknown reason, I've gotten the urge to teach myself Italian. I do have Italian heritage, but none of my immediate family speaks it, so I'd basically be 100% on my own.
Has anyone ever tried teaching him/herself a language? If so, what do you think the best way to learn it is (other than actually going to the country and being around it 24/7)? I was planning on just buying a book like "Italian for dummies" or something like that just to get my feet wet.
