I just knew there would be a Luigi along sooner or later. And here he is, to tell us about his holiday plans! Check out today’s penultimate listening in our A2 series, which as well as offering useful listening practice, contains plenty of examples of the ‘futuro semplice’. Do I need to remind you to […]

La ricerca di Lucia (6th A2 listening with transcript)
Here’s your latest Italian listening track, complete with transcript. Today’s topic is finding a job, a seemingly impossible quest for today’s young Italians! Hear how Lucia went about it in this pre-intermediate level recording. Don’t forget now: listen without the transcript at least once (ideally, multiple times) before turning to the transcript. Listen then with […]
Francesco fa il cuoco (5th A2 listening)
Here’s the latest in our series of A2 level Italian listening exercises (with tapescripts). This is number 5, out of 8. When I’ve published all of them, they’ll be relocated to our new A2 page, which is still very much a work in progress! By the way, if the A2 (pre-intermediate) stuff is too hard, […]
Spring cleaning (& 4th A2 listening track)!

My frenzy of spring cleaning isn’t finished yet, but should already mean the site is easier for you to navigate. ALL of the free materials for learning Italian can be […]

Il mio viaggio a Parigi (second A2 listening)
Last day of work for me, as tomorrow I’m off to Rimini for Pasqua. Lots to eat and drink, plus hopefully some sunshine so we’ll be able to get out on the Adriatic on our boat. But not to worry. I’ll be continuing to post the new listening material. And reminders about the conversation groups […]
“When I was small” (First A2 listening!)
Here’s the first of eight A2 (pre-intermediate) listening exercises for you to work on. I’ll be publishing the rest of the recordings for this level every two or three days over the next couple of weeks. The idea is to gradually get OnlineItalianClub.com users used to listening to Italian. If you haven’t done the 8 […]
The Italian conversation groups restart after Easter – enroll now!
You’ve probably been working on your Italian listening over the last couple of weeks, right? That’s great! And there’ll be more to come next week, when we start releasing the A2 material. But let’s not forget about the other half of the equation! It’s not much good being able to understand what others say to […]
