In this lesson you will learn some useful Italian that you can use right away!
This lesson will help you speak Italian from the very first moment.
I decided to teach you something that is not normally taught in the first lesson of a traditional course. I want you to experiment the beauty of saying something meaningful from the first day, and not the usual “My name is”.
STEP 1: Listen to the audio lesson.
STEP 2: Read the takeaways from the lesson. This is what you should remember, use and revise.
STEP 3: Practice time!
You can decide whether to just stick to the lesson, listen to it first and then read the script, or listen to the audio while reading the script (you can find the script in “STEP 2”).
Here you can find:
In the same PDF file (see “STEP 2”), you will also find a section called “Practice time”. This section is made up of 4 mini parts: the first three help fix the concepts of the lesson or of the previous ones. The last part is a speaking exercise: there is an extra audio file in which I will be asking you questions. Click here below to listen to my questions.
For your convenience, to avoid having to look at both files (lessons and exercise keys), the lessons and exercise keys have been placed here. The keys are next to the exercises themselves, towards the end of the page.

Ciao a Tutti!
I’m from Colombia and I live in Barcelona. I’d like to travel to Italy for sightseeing and for this reason I took the course ‘Smart Italian for busy people’: since it’s a 30-day course and I have little time to learn every day, it made me focus on this goal for a short time and learn words, grammar and essential expressions that will help me have basic conversations with anyone. The method looks to me dynamic and simple, plus I get constantly new information, which I find cool cause I don’t get along with the same old phrases and expressions. I liked it a lot and it made me motivated to learn more and more.
