Learning English from a non-spanish speaking view point

I wan't to teach my friend, who speaks italian, english. Is there a way for her to learn english using italian as the first language?

I've heard there is the option for spanish speaking people to learn english, but is there a way for other speaking languages?

Thank you in advance for your help!

Yes. Your friend just needs to go to http://www.duolingo.com/settings/account and set her learning language to "Voglio imparare inglese (io parlo italiano)." We currently have the option for Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, and French speakers to learn English:)


Thank you for the information, I will let her know! :)
