Welcome! Now you have access to my lessons.

However, even the best language course won’t work if you don’t use it correctly and regularly.

Before starting out, give me 5 minutes to show you how to learn faster. This will save you years of study!

How we all learn languages

After learning 12 languages, I came to the conclusion that we all learn languages by listening and mimicking.

A bit like we did when we were babies.

That’s why I created study material to learn Italian by speaking.

My courses

My learning resources include two libraries of lessons:

  1. An audio course to learn grammar without studying rules, but rather by listening and repeating many sample sentences.
  2. A collection of bilingual readings with audio to expand your vocabulary with simplified yet real-world material.

The combination of the two will make you familiar with grammar patterns and let you put them into practice right away.

Here’s a video tour of my courses:

Audio course

Lesson 1 of the audio course


First, listen to my very personal introduction to this course:

This is an audio course specifically designed for the Italian language with a focus on speaking.

I’ll show you how to say things in Italian and you’ll repeat after me to acquire vocabulary and grammar naturally.

Each lesson covers one grammar pattern without explicitly teaching it, but rather showing many examples in English and Italian.

How to take a lesson

lesson structure
Lesson structure: easy as ABC!

Simply put, you need to repeat everything that you hear in Italian.

Every lesson includes 30 bilingual sentences and is made up of 3 sequences: A, B, and C.

Sequence A

  1. listen to a sentence in English
  2. hear it in Italian
  3. repeat it while you hear it again.

Sequence B

  1. listen to a sentence in English
  2. say that in Italian during the pause
  3. repeat the sentence in Italian while you hear it.

Don’t worry if you can’t recollect exactly. Try to say something anyway.

Sequence C

  1. speak along in Italian

Pro tips to boost your progress

  • Take one lesson a day, every day. Neither more nor less.
  • Listen and repeat what you hear. Don’t listen passively, or it would go into one ear and come out from the other.
  • The first time you listen to a lesson, only rely on audio.
  • Go through A, B, and C on the same day, in that order, all in a row, without pausing the audio. Together, they take about 15-30 minutes.
  • Don’t worry if you can’t remember or even understand everything you hear, miss words and mumble phrases. You’ll catch them later.
  • If you can keep up somehow with about 70% of the content, move on to the next lesson; or else, repeat the lesson the day after.
  • If you hit a wall, go back a few lessons and everything will feel easier than before.

Grammar notes

Personally, I never study grammar explicitly, but I rather acquire it by making mistakes in conversation.

That’s why my lessons do not include grammar notes in order to focus on speaking.

However, you do find a link to grammar notes on every lesson of Ripeti con me!

Try reading after you finish the lesson, not before.

A good read

Reading the smart way

Usually, people read silently. This makes it difficult to recollect and recount what you just read.

That’s why you should always speak along or read it aloud. This also improves your pronunciation.

What’s in a reading

  • Audio with adjustable narration speed.
    First, rely on the audio without reading.
  • Italian transcript.
    After the first round of listening, read aloud the Italian text without looking at the translation.
  • English translation.

Pro tip: bookmark a story and review it after a few days. You’ll be surprised by how much more you can understand!
