When you are learning a new language, one of the most difficult things is speaking properly. You may know all verbs and grammar rules, or may have read a ton of books in your language of choice, or tried some Italian speaking practice on your own, but when it comes to saying the proper thing at the proper time without making mistakes, well…that’s like climbing Mount Everest.
I have been studying languages all my life and I know the feeling. You are looking for words in your head, being extremely nervous because the other person is waiting for you to say something. Or maybe you haven’t even understood what the other person is saying, but you are too ashamed to ask to repeat what she or he just said…for the tenth time.
Been there, done that. I know how difficult it is. The best solution is practicing the language in a relaxed environment, where you feel at ease and try speaking without fear of making mistakes. By doing so, you’ll easily improve your language skills and then gain the confidence to speak freely and without anxiety.
Well, I can help you with that!
If you are learning Italian and feel the need of practicing the language with a native Italian speaker, here I am. I have crafted Chiacchieriamo just for you.
Chiacchieriamo is your way of practicing your Italian language speaking skills without moving from home.
If you are learning Italian and either do not reside in Italy nor have the opportunity of visiting often, it is quite difficult to practice the language. You can find many resources online, but when it comes to speaking, you need a real person to communicate with. That’s why I created Chiacchieriamo. You just need a PC and Skype account and you’re ready to chiacchierare in Italiano!
You can refresh your rusty Italian, improve your pronunciation and finally speak fluently.
Just chat via Skype with me: you’ll speak Italian and improve your comprehension and speaking skills.
At your own pace.
Whenever you feel like it.
Do you want to try?
Request your 30 minutes free: we meet each other, we chat and you decide if you like the lesson. If so, we begin scheduling other lessons. If not, amici come prima (friends as before), as we say in Italian!
What it is
It’s the opportunity of improving your Italian speaking skills by chatting with an Italian mother tongue. The program is absolutely flexible: you can purchase just one hour every now and then or buy packages of more hours and we’ll schedule the timing together, tailored on your needs. No hassle, no fixed schedule, just like friends do.
It is for you if
- You already know a bit of Italian
- You want to improve your speaking skills
- You have a good command of written Italian but have some problems when it comes to speaking it
- You speak Italian fluently and miss speaking it every now and then
It is not for you if
- You are an absolute beginner in Italian
- You are looking for grammar lessons and exercises
- You do not like chatting via Skype
Because I am Italian and I live in Italy! But also, because I am qualified to teach languages, holding a B.A in languages and communication and a master’s degree in Teaching Italian as a Foreign Language and having years of experience in teaching (you can read all about my education and work experience here). Well, I also have been studying languages all my life and I know how difficult it is. And, most of all, because I love to chat with people who love Italian and I am happy to help them improve it!
