La conversazione telefonica
Talking on the phone can represent the ultimate challenge for someone learning a foreign language. On the phone you rely on tone of voice and the words spoken, and you don’t have body language or gestures to help you out. Talking on the phone in Italian is both valuable when you go to Italy and a great way to practice your Italian.
While this workshop is not a “class”, it is a chance for Italian language learns of all levels to get together and help each other improve their skills. There are no teachers, no stress, no grades, no tests, the homework is fun (and always optional) and the facilitators make sure everyone gets a chance to participate, learn and enjoy the session. The group is relaxed, interactive, informal and above all supportive, making it a safe place to start your adventure with Italian or continue your progress with la bella lingua. If you are an expert or a native speaker, come and share your knowledge and precious gift with a passionate group of enthusiasts.
