Today I thought that another way for Learning Italian easily is doing it with a game. I started this game here bleow and you can continue it when you have time.
This is what I did. I started thinking to some Italian Opposite Words (Italian Antonyms) without following a stricht logical thread. I took note of these couple of words dividing them alphabetically.
Now what you can do is to update this list with new Italian Antonyms that time after time you learn. Rember: everything works, nouns, adjectives, adverbs, verbs, whatever.
Fianally this game can be done from all the levels of knowledge: the more your knowledge is high, the more your couple of words will be specific and complex.
