Join the Italian Speakers Society

When you go to Italy or speak with your Italian relatives you want to feel good and express yourself spontaneously without fear and without being worried about making mistakes. You also would like to understand better and speak without translating everything in your mind, or you would like to have more opportunities to train your Italian so you do not forget how to speak.

 

You need to understand Italian in different situations non just the bar and restaurants. You would love to be able to understand the different accents and ways Italians have to say specific things.

 

Think for example of all the ways we have to say:

 

  • croissant, it depends on where you go in Italy you will hear pasta, cornetto, brioche, etc. So we will go from everyday conversations to – spoken Italian
  • the different uses of words like “quindi”, “cioè” etc.
  • expressions of the spoken language like “manco”, “mica”, “come rimaniamo” etc.

Testimonials

The Society helped me to feel closer to Italy and has introduced aspects of culture and language that I wouldn’t ordinarily encounter in my own language-learning journey. Plus it’s a valuable opportunity to speak in Italian, in an informal group environment, that I don’t currently have otherwise. The fact that each session is exclusively in Italian is brilliant as it requires adapting to a particular language mindset and sustaining it for 90 minutes, which is great exercise!

I’m so grateful for the opportunity to speak in a low-pressure environment! And I learn something interesting each session.
Having a small group to chat with. is more relaxed because I’m not in the spotlight the whole time!
