Learning Italian for foreigners is affected by various factors which vary from learner to learner. It is important to remark that there is no exemplary learner to be referenced in the study of a foreign language.
First of all, the age. It is supposed to be thought that children learn a second language easier than the adults do, helped by a natural trend to be more social e more addicted to the reproduction of sounds. On the contrary, adults are better on the grammatical and logical level.
Sociocultural aspects to which the learner has undergone before studying and learning a foreign language are not to be ignore. A good education, that, generally, is also associated with the study of at least a foreign language, can be decisive: in fact, the student may already have at his disposal language patterns belonging to more languages, thus he will be facilitated in learning.
Motivation and cultural openness are very important in learning Italian for foreigners. According to statistics, the Chinese, Cape Verdeans and Filipinos are among the nations where the cultural isolation is more accentuated. Even in a large group of Chinese, people use to delegate just one spokespersons to interact with others. The integration of the rest of the people is almost nothing.
The different social context can affect learning of the student. A foreigner reception of the language will be different in a medium-high context compare to that of a learner in a medium-low reality.
In learning Italian the phonological level is the most influenced by the mother tongue. The most common phonological interferences are the consonantical simplification and the deletion of unstressed vocalism. Obviously, regional dialects affect learning Italian for foreigners.
The morphological level is, however, harder to learn because the speakers early grasp only the most important elements from the semantic point of view, and only after we consciously use the grammar of the Italian language.
The rules of correlation between gender and number are the longest and more difficult to learn and vary between the different linguistic communities.
The vocabulary learning of the Italian language is certainly much more quickly and correctly as there is contact between Italians and the learner.
