ciao,my method to your question is that memerizing the more articles the better,it's my own experience.
besides,reciting more english words,acturally there're many similar words between english and italian.it'll be easier for to remember them.
sono una studentessa cinese,per me studio l'italiano e' piu' difficile.ma con il medoto in confronto al'inglese,ho fatto un progresso.
so i think you can have a try.
waiting for your good news!
