Today I have a new, free Italian conversation lesson for you.
The topic is Viaggiare (Travel) and as usual you’ll find conversation prompts at elementary, intermediate and advanced levels.
The idea is that the prompts form the basis for conversation practice, perhaps in a group with friends from your Italian class, or one-to-one with an online teacher.
Click here to take a look.
Or view all fourteen topics on the ‘Conversation’ page of the club website.
Got no one to practice speaking Italian with?
Why not try online Italian lessons with a club teacher?
They’re not free, but it’s potentially one of the best investments you could make.
Which I can affirm from personal experience!
Six months ago I could barely say “My name is Daniel and I live in Bologna” in Swedish.
Barely, but with zero degree of confidence.
I’d been studying the language for a year or so but had done literally NO speaking at all.
In terms of communication skills (speaking and listening) I was a beginner.
Since then I’ve done about 60-hours of lessons with a competitor.
I’d say my level now is B1 (intermediate).
Or at least a solid, certifiable A2 (pre-intermediate).
Which I am very proud of!
The lessons have cost me perhaps a thousand euros and I definitely consider it money well-spent.
The satisfaction of being able to chat away in a language that I’ve had no formal training in, and which less than a year ago I couldn’t speak at all, is immense.
By way of contrast, I spent absolutely nothing on learning Italian.
I was living and working here, and so just ‘picked it up’.
But it took me a decade or more.
Draw your own conclusions…
