Spelling KILLS me

I learn vocab and conj easily, but the listen-to-italian-write-italian part always loses me points. My spelling isn't even that great in English! lol

"r" vs "rr"... o "c" vs "cc", "ch", or "cch" ...I think, with time, i will just memorize the spellings.

Written Italian -unlike English- is pretty regular. It is also closer to my native (Turkish) than it is to English so after learning a few exceptions (gli, ch vs c etc) I can write almost any word I hear even if I don't know what it means. Good luck to you.

I feel you man. I mean, I'm romanian and even though italian and romanian are basically identical the double consonant thingy always wrecks me

I think it's pretty easy! As oktaya says, apart from few exceptions, you write it exactly as you pronounce it.. I'm learning french and i'm telling you, that is hard!
