Online Italian Conversation Practice (small groups – 4 ppl max)
Do you aspire to become fluent in Italian, or do you simply want to improve your Italian speaking skills? Join my “Salotto Italiano“! Salotto Italiano is a series of events where three or four highly motivated Italian learners come together to converse in a friendly, educational, and respectful environment. We offer conversation practice groups for advanced beginners (A2), lower-intermediate (A2+/B1), and upper-intermediate students (B1++/B2).
Curious about why I started this “speaking club”?
As an experienced language teacher, I have primarily focused on one-on-one Italian teaching throughout my career. However, as an advanced speaker of English as a foreign language, I encountered situations where English became the common language in social interactions, and I found myself panicking, even as a proficient speaker. This experience made me realize the importance of excelling not only in one-on-one interactions but also in group settings.
Speaking vs. Communicating
Group settings don’t require only speaking skills, but communication skills (e.g. listening, replying, contextual coherence or even joking!).
Speaking in a foreign language in front of others can be daunting, but like any skill, it’s learnable!
Join my Salotto Italiano and practice your Italian communication skills in a social and natural context.
