Learn Italian with Podcasts
They say that you really speak a language when you know how to express feelings. Impress your new Italian friend with a simple “How are you today?”
Your podcasts are absolutely delightful! Thank you. I would like to point out to you that the link to lesson #4 is not working.
I’m glad you like the podcasts and hope you find them useful.
The link to lesson #4 is now working.
Buongiorno a tutti!
lm a yr 6 student doing Italian this yr e lm half Italian. I love the Italian way e this has really helped me!!!
In the supplementary vocabulary you say..Io sto bene and Io sto male……Why ‘sto’ and not ‘sono’?..Are we not expresssing feelings?
Marvin, we’ve dedicated an episode to the difference between “essere” and “stare”.
You’ll find it here.
Thanks for the podcasts! I’ve got a pretty good background in Spanish which makes it easy to understand the lessons, plus as a child my great grandparents spoke nothing but Italian so dimly lit areas of memory are becoming bright spots again.
At times, both Jane and Massimo pronounce “Venezia” with a lisp–“Venethia”. At other times it’s pronounced in the standard way. Is this because of regional differences in pronunciation? Massimo also does this with “Grazie.”
It’s probably due because of regional differences in pronunciation, even if the Italian spoken by both Jane and Massimo is very standard (with no dialect).
thank you for putting this online
Found the site just today and have already added many new words to my vocabulary
How would ask someone who is italian…..’Please speak slowly as I am only starting to learn Italian’
