    I plan on going to Italy some day, its like always been a dream for me...
    The country is spectacular and well seems like a really good place.
    I hope that i have the chance to travel and not have to worry about financial constraints etc

    Anyways i want to be able to understand italian and also speak it, does not have to be fluent .
    I only speak English, is there any technique or anyone with a similar experience who was able to learn a whole new language on their own?

    Eat pizza for lunch and ice cream for dessert, works like a charm when you wanna learn Italian.
    For example, I wanted to learn French and I was eating snails each day for lunch Mon-Fri. For the weekend I was eating Frog legs (lunch) and Pate de Foie Gras for dinner
    Now I talk like I am born in the south of France

    Total immersion. You'll learn it faster by actually living there, but doing things like changing the language on your phone, computer, tv goes a long way too.

    You can do online courses until the cows come home, but unless you are able to put what you learn into practice in real life situations then it's probably not going to stick.

    Duolingo, Memrise, Anki and Lang8 are awesome study aids. Perhaps try and make some Italian friends to practice with.

    I recommend Michel Thomas course in Italian...you should be able to find a free download somewhere. He will have speaking enough basic language to get by in a few days.

    The real way to learn a language fluently is move to the country and hook up with an Italian woman.

    Bro learning things needs concentration so get that first you will easily go ahead in getting the language.

    Italy has several kinds of Italian. The people in the North speak one way, those in Rome speak another way, those in the South are completely different.

    If you learn Italian in Milan(north) and go to Rome, you will NOT understand all they say....

    Rome has a particular dialect of Italian called Romanaccio, if they talk fast and you're not ITalian, you won't understand a thing.

    Learning Italian in Rome is like trying to learn English from a Nascar driver.

    Chris22 is totally right. My mom is fluent in 12 European languages because she either grew up or lived there. Also, learn the accent from talking along Italian films.
