Speak from Lesson 1

1. Italian Audio Lessons

Listen and repeat

Research shows that you learn better by relying on speech and mimicking. Just like we did when we learned our first language when we were born.

Follow a plan

But you can’t just repeat random sentences. My course plan helps you discover grammar patterns and retain the vocabulary you are being exposed to.

Learn in small bites

If you have a spare 20 minutes each day, you can completely transform your Italian level to the point that you’ll start thinking in Italian yourself in just a few days.

Imagine that!

What's in a Lesson?

Audio

Read by a native speaker at a natural pace to catch every word.

Italian Transcript

There's an Italian transcript to read along if you need a visual aid.

English Translation

No need to look up new words with the complete English translation!

Less is More

Focus on What Makes You Fluent...

Audio with Adjustable Narration Speed

We all learn by listening and mimicking. That's why audio is paramount. First, rely on audio only without reading. Too fast for you? No problem, adjust the playback speed!

Italian Transcript

After the first round of listening, read aloud the Italian text without looking at the translation.

English Translation

Still puzzled by some words? Check out the English version!

Bookmarks

Mark a lesson to find it later on your dashboard and pick up where you left off.

... Without the Fluff

Distractions

The most important yet overlooked skill in language courses and apps is speaking. With my method, you'll focus on that.

False Sense of Achievement

Experience points, avatars, fanfares, rankings... all these gamification elements distract you from your task - mastering Italian.

Dictionaries

If you stop to look up each and every word you don't know, you lose the flow. To think in Italian, you should listen and read Italian. Only after you listen and read the Italian version, take a look at the English translation.

Why it works

Rave Reviews by Learners and Experts

Frederica – UK

5/5

Ripeti con me! has been the best language learning experience I’ve had.  

I have always been really shy about speaking languages, and the fact that you are speaking from the very first day really builds your confidence, makes you much more fluent, in terms of how you’re thinking in the language.

It’s been a real change for me. I couldn’t recommend it enough!

Takehiro – Japan

5/5

I have been taking lessons with Stefano for a year and a half. Stefano is an excellent teacher. Thanks to him, my Italian has improved dramatically.

Stefano understands all aspects of the Italian language. He has a lot of experience, not only in teaching Italian but also in language learning. This makes him an ideal teacher.

I highly recommend him!

Vivinne – USA

5/5

Ripeti Con Me has really helped with my language learning, with my speaking, which is what I’m mostly interested in.

I noticed within about 3 to 4 days of starting that my speaking ability took a jump as well as my listening comprehension.

James – Ireland

5/5

This course is brilliant.

I encourage anyone who takes on the course to go through those three different repetitions because they really do actually work.

As a complete beginner to Italian, I’ve found it a very stress-free and easy way to get into the language without any of the nervousness and anxiety that comes with face-to-face learning and being put on the spot.

I really recommend the course to anyone out there wanting to learn Italian.”

Jim – USA

5/5

I really like learning Italian on Think in Italian.

It’s a no-nonsense method that appeals to me – no time wasted doing exercises or playing games.

[Its sentences] are well thought out and they can be adapted to real conversation pretty easily.

No memorization either. It’s right to the point.

Emily – USA

5/5

It is a system that is easy, brilliant—so easy that only somebody that really really understood teaching languages could come up with.

Every lesson builds on what came before it and you’re learning the language without even giving it a second thought.

I was able to converse naturally when we went to Italy. The words just flowed, I was no longer translating in my head.

I’ve come so much further than with Babbel or Duolingo. None of the silly games, no fill-in-the-blanks, no homework, no exercises to do — all the things that I felt like I was wasting time with.

I highly recommend it and I know if you try it it will work for you too.

Behind my courses is a method.

Your Italian Language Coach

Ciao! My name is Stefano. I am an Italian tutor and course author.

As a serial language learner, I’ve lectured in polyglot clubs about my method.

After learning 12 languages, I can tell you that we all master languages by listening and mimicking.

With my method, you’ll be speaking Italian from Lesson 1.
