Italian is a cousin by marriage of English (connected through French) and both have a lot in common.  This makes it much easier to learn than more distant languages.  There is so much in common between the vocabulary and the grammar of both languages that you can progress fast.    

Italian vocabulary has tens of thousands of words in common with English.  You can easily recognize and learn them:  televisione, macchina, spendere, nazione.  Once you get used to the way they are modified, it becomes a breeze.  For example, there are 1,200  words in "ion" in English which become "ione" words in Italian: elevazione, nazione, preparazione, preoccupazione etc.   It is obvious what these mean in English.

Italian grammar has more grammar forms than English, and it requires some concentration to learn.  But once again its close relationship  to English allows you to intuitively know how to build sentences very easily.  There is always a way to practice grammar conversationally which makes it much simpler and natural. 
There is nothing really too challenging in Italian pronunciation.  Once you understand the rhythm and music of the language it becomes quite fun and easy to learn Italian.  The spellings may look odd to English speakers but they are systematic and regular.
Our Italian classes are structured to bring you to a practical knowledge of the language.  We pay close attentions to individual students and how they learn.  
This brief article can give you a sense of what is involved in learning Italian.
