Does this sound like you?

  • You love the Italian language and culture

  • You dream of fluent conversations with locals while enjoying a cappuccino on a beautiful terrace…

BUT you’re a busy person, you have little free time and you want to find a fun and efficient way to boost your language learning without committing to large amounts of time.

Does this ring a bell? Well then you’ve come to the right place…because I, Elisa, have developed a course specifically for busy people who want to reach amazing results in a very short amount of time!

I have been teaching for 20 years now and have experimented with different strategies which have helped me understand what works not only for me but for everyone else!

I now know EXACTLY what you need to do – and in which order – to be able to speak Italian from day one. 

In short: I have a system, designed specifically to get you speaking Italian from day one and feeling more and more confident day after day. If you follow it, you will reach an upper beginner/pre-intermediate level and be able to have meaningful conversations with natives in just 30 days.

What is included in the program?

The program consists of 30 audio lessons, where I explain all the grammar of the level, in an easy and fun way. Everything you will learn will be useful and you can immediately use it in a conversation.

Of course, the grammar explained in the typical way that I use in my Smart Italian for busy people videos is only a guide, because the real goal of the course is to enable you to SPEAK and USE the language you learn. Audio lessons come with transcripts, tasks, word lists, and verb tables with lots of examples, but nothing you have to memorise, because you will learn it all while listening to the audio lessons.

In addition to this, there’s my Facebook community, where you can ask me questions and where you will be in contact with other people who are learning like you. This is ideal to keep you on track for the 30-day course! Don’t have Facebook? No problem, you don’t need it to complete the course. Facebook is just another channel you can use to improve your learning, but all the essentials are in my course. The Facebook community is a wonderful tool if you like interacting with people and receiving daily contributions to stay motivated, but if you prefer to learn without it, that’s totally fine!

With my audio lessons you will certainly learn a lot in a fun and easy way. You will be amazed by your results within such a short time frame!

What level will I reach in 30 days?

The course is designed for beginners who want to reach level A2 (the end of the pre-intermediate level) within 30 days.

At this level, you can start simple but useful conversations in Italian. You can talk about yourself, your life and interests, your family, your job or profession, your plans for the future (for example, for the weekend or night), what you did in the past (for example, the past weekend week, on your last vacation or just yesterday).

You can also make phone calls and write emails to friends in Italian. 

…just to give you an idea!

What about grammar?

I teach you ALL the grammar of this level in an easy and entertaining way.

These are some of the topics that I explain at level A1-A2:

  • Present tense to talk about yourself and your routine
  • Past tense of regular and irregular verbs  to talk about your past experience 
  • How to express the future tense in Italian to talk about your plans
  • The most important prepositions and how to use them
  • The most important linking words and how to use them 
  • Introduction to the conditional tense to say what you would like
  • Asking questions: the most important question words and how to use them in order to ask anything you want 
  •  Dates and times to talk about plans, appointments, yourself and past events
  • The grammar you need to start making phone calls and writing emails (with useful examples)
  • Reflexive verbs
  • Modal verbs
  • The grammar you need to talk about your interests and your work

These are only some of the topics taught in the course.

How long do I need to study?

The entire course is designed for ‘busy people’, so you can complete the lessons in as little as 7-15 minutes a day. Of course, you can spend more or less time if you prefer. But you can definitely finish the course in 30 days. 🙂

What if I cannot finish the course in 30 days?

We all go through busier-than-usual periods. If something happens and you can’t study for a couple of days or more, you have nothing to worry about, you can do it at your own pace. There’s no rush!

Can I start with this program whenever I want?

Yes, you can start with the program any time!

What my students say about this course:

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.

And if you carefully follow the steps I outline for you below, it’s totally possible to study Italian for as little as seven to fifteen minutes a day and see amazing results…

And if you keep watching/reading, you’ll discover how studying seven to fifteen minutes a day for 30 days can help you reach the A2 level (upper beginner) in Italian! 

A bold promise, I know, but I’m confident we can do it, and here’s why:

My method

Let me start by explaining why most people fail at learning a language. It’s probably not what you think!

You see, many people think that seven to fifteen minutes is too little time to see any progress. 

But in reality, the reason most people stop learning a language is that they set their goals too high. 

For instance: 

‘I’m going to study for three hours a day from today onwards’. 

Who has three hours a day? Or even two? Even I don’t spend that much time learning languages, and I’m a BIG language nerd!

In most cases, after one or two weeks (or even earlier), you notice that that amount of time isn’t sustainable and you stop.

The secret to making rapid progress in Italian…

In reality, what actually helps us move forward when learning languages is studying every day. Even if it’s just for seven to fifteen minutes. It’s the consistency that matters.

If you set a smaller, more manageable goal and keep at it, day after day you will see results. Take things one step at a time and you will learn so much. 

The biggest ‘guarantee for success’ is:

If you are consistent in what you want to achieve for as little as 30 days, you will be amazed at your progress.

Even things that seem intimidating get easier if we divide the load up into small steps. 

If we don’t do anything, the result is zero but if we do even just a bit, we will reach our goal at some point, no matter what. 

Adults are motivated by results, so if you see that you are making progress, you are much more likely to keep doing the work.

 If you study a bit every day, you won’t forget what you learn and you will be motivated.

I am pretty sure that you have a busy schedule and that you would be glad to see that with as little as 7 to 15 minutes, you could achieve the results you want. Can you relate to that?

Now, you might think…Elisa, that DOES sound good, but what exactly should I focus on in those 7 to 15 minutes? How do I make my study periods as efficient and rewarding as possible?

 

To make rapid progress in Italian, two things come into play:

  • It’s the consistency that matters. If you study a bit every day you will get results. But how do you make sure that you actually study a bit every day? The ‘secret’ is to do something you find enjoyable.

  • At the same time, it’s very important that you focus on the right activities. In this way you will make progress, stay motivated, and you will definitely be able to achieve the results you’re after.

So here’s what that means in practical terms.

When you only have little time, you should think about what you want to be able to do with the language (such as being able to talk to people, reading, or understanding movies). You probably want to be able to do all of this, and you will get there in the end, but it’s always best to start with your top priority

Do you want to learn Italian because you actually want to hold actual conversations? 

This is what this course helps you with: developing your speaking skills because it focuses on the bits of the language that help you speak and enable you to express your thoughts, and talk about yourself and your life.

…of course you will also learn how to read and write because you have full transcripts of the lessons, but thanks to the audio lessons, you will train your listening and speaking skills. In the audio lessons, I will teach you useful bits of the language that you can immediately use in conversation with me as I will prompt you to interact with me and ask you questions about what I am teaching you.

On the one hand, the Smart Italian daily lessons are interactive and fun.

On the other hand, they focus on what really helps you speak Italian and have meaningful conversations.

 

 Do I have to be an expert in grammar before I can start speaking Italian?

If you want to learn Italian in order to be able to speak to people, learning all the grammar first might put you off learning the language altogether. It’s important to focus on the relevant grammar – the bits that helps you speak. You will learn all the grammar you need to know, just not all at the same time. You will learn it, step by step, in a practical and easy way so that you can immediately use it in conversation.

This course teaches you grammar in a communicative way. For example, if I’m teaching you how to ask questions in Italian, you will see how easy it is, just by changing one word or two, to greatly amplify the number of questions you can ask with very little effort.

What about vocabulary?

Along with easily explained grammar, with this course you will only focus on useful words that EVERYONE needs (enough of word lists made up of words you can’t use!). 

And both grammar and words are taught in meaningful contexts: in conversation! In this way you will also learn when it’s correct to use them.

And what is great is that you will be using and practising all of this whilst learning. That means that  once you have completed the day’s short study session, you will already be able to use everything you have learnt with natives!

I can help you learn Italian fast and in an efficient and fun way.  

That’s exactly why I created ‘Smart Italian for busy people’ my course! 

The concept behind Smart Italian for busy people:

You have a clear and easy program to follow.

This program is designed to enable you to speak Italian from day 1, and reach A1/A2 level after just 30 days through daily short study sessions.

The program offers ~7-minute effective and entertaining audio lessons to listen to every day. If you want more practice, you can use the extra materials provided with the audio (transcripts, grammar summaries, word lists, takeaways, written exercises, speaking practice) or have a look at the extra material in our Facebook group where you can interact with me and with other people who have the same level as you. 

Furthermore, you can take part in weekly online group classes with me! 

If this sounds interesting, and you want to make amazing progress in Italian in the coming 30 days, then let me tell you exactly what this program offers.

1. Daily lessons that contain all the study materials you need

First of all, you get 30 days’ worth of daily Italian audio lessons, created by me and based on the effective method I described above. 

These are audio lessons where I explain Italian grammar in an easy and entertaining way: I interact with you and prompt you to speak and use what I teach you. Everything I teach will enable you to have meaningful conversations that you are likely to encounter when talking directly with Italian native speakers. That way, you only learn useful words that you’ll actually need in real life. Enough already with frustrating words lists full of specialised vocabulary you’ll never actually use!

You will start speaking Italian easily and from the very beginning! 

Every lesson comes with:

  • Downloadable audio files to learn on-the-go

  • A transcript of the lesson to read along with and make sure you understand every single word

  • A grammar summary to revise and learn important new grammar topics that come up in the lesson

  • A reference list of useful words (you’ll also be memorising these automatically while going through the course) 

  • Exercises to put everything into practice

  • Speaking exercises

The nice thing is that we’re using the ‘spaced repetition’ technique to repeat and revise the words and structures in a strategic way throughout the 30 lessons. 

That means that, if you stick to the lesson schedule and just listen to the audio every day, you will memorise the most important words and structures automatically!

2. A community where you can interact with me and other Italian students!  

As part of your enrolment in this program, you’ll also get access to our ‘Smart Italian for busy people’ community! 

In this community, you can:

  • Ask any questions you have regarding what you are learning in the course.

  • Interact with me, other Italian learners and other native speakers. 

  • Get extra material, such as links of interesting Italian movies, songs, podcasts and videos about Italy and the Italian culture.

3. FREEBIE: weekly live practice sessions with me! 

I hold weekly online group sessions where you can ask me any questions about the topics I explained in the course and practise your Italian with me and with other Italian students who have your same level!

That way you can enjoy using what you learn in a safe and pleasant environment.
