Ciao, sono Barbara

sono qui per accompagnarti nel tuo viaggio nella lingua italiana, e perché no, anche in Italia.

If spontaneous speech
is your destination,
buckle up and get ready!

This is the space for people to Be Italian, not just Learn it. Let’s journey together through Italy and discover everything about it.

Time to be Italian, YES is a space to learn many things about Italian culture, but also a space to feel closer to this culture through communication, conversation, listening and travel.

A way to experience the language and not just study it. I want to help you to feel closer to this language helping you to speak spontaneously. 

Because speaking, conversing in the language we are learning, I think it is the most INTIMATE way to feel close to that culture.

The world of Time to be Italian is made of authentic conversations through my online courses, on YouTube, the podcast #conparolenostre, my newsletters, local events and my Language trip in the Marche

Let’s journey through spontaneous speaking together

How to start a conversation with Italians

Going to big cities in Italy is not that complicated. Often in bars, train stations etc. they speak in English. 

But when you travel to small towns it is a little different and in this guide you will find suggestions on how to feel less touristy and more Italian. 

You will find examples of how to be able to speak with Italians and start a conversation, a real one, like an Italian!

Podcast

con parole nostre podcast
Ci piace chiacchierare

I love chatting in Italian and I think real and authentic Italian conversations are very useful for improving your listening and speaking. 

For this reason, Elfin, Silvia and I meet up twice a month and talk about life in Italy, Italian traditions, music, cinema and ‘chi più ne ha più ne metta’ we chat a lot! Of course, the Podcast is in Italian.
