(This could be helpful to anyone learning another language not just Italian)
I am learning italian and am going to Italy for a summer abroad program. I have finished college Italian 1 and i would like to add to my vocabulary list of very basic words. Is there a better way of broadening it other than just memorizing? My main goal is to be able to have conversations with people and obviously when i go over there my italian will greatly improve but for now i'd like to be able to help it along by knowing more words.
Thank You guys very much

I have a suggestion for you, sharedtalk by rosetta stone. I started using this about a week and a half ago and it is awesome. I have met many people on it and we exchange skype and facebook and we will have conversations in both english and italian, because the people on there want to learn languages also. And what Benny says about speaking the language and seeing it all the time is very true, I have learned so much in just this week and a half of talking to natives than I though wasn't possible:)

For me, I went around labeling stuff in my apartment in Italian. I would add a few items per day, then walk around and see if I could remember everything. Soon I had post it notes on everything, but it worked pretty well. If you drive much, try to name things as you pass by, but make small sentences out of it. "Questo e un albero," (per esempio) "Questo è l'ufficio postale." See if that helps. Good luck.
