Oggi parliamo ITALIANO!

Posted by Monica Corrias on August 27, 2007

Parlo italiano

Ciao a tutti, oggi è la giornata dell’italiano. Il gioco di oggi è provare a parlare solo in italiano: sotto la doccia (va bene se cantate una delle canzoni che trovate nella pagina “Italian classes”), davanti allo specchio, al bar e al ristorante. Per chi non vive in Italia consiglio di andare al bar e chiedere solo un caffé o un cappuccino, invece se volete mangiare (a pranzo o a cena) vi suggerisco di andare in pizzeria o al massimo in una spaghetteria (già, tra le parole più conosciute al mondo ci sono pizza, mozzarella, pasta, spaghetti …)

“Buona fortuna” o meglio … “In bocca al lupo!”

P.S. ciao Zintia, scusa, “Cinzia” (con pronuncia italiana)
piaciuta la risposta?

Un grande saluto a tutti gli studenti di luglio e agosto e a presto.

Italian songs and “imperfetto” tense

Posted by Monica Corrias on August 18, 2007

Ciao, come state?

Qui il tempo è incantevole e la giornata è molto rilassante. Ho pensato che forse avete voglia di studiare qualcosa di nuovo. Che ne dite dell’imperfetto? Ho inserito una scheda e dei link a due canzoni che usano anche questo tempo verbale.

I suggest that you read and listen to the Italian songs “Non me lo so spiegare” by T. Ferro and “Studentessa universitaria” by S. Cristicchi: I underlined the “imperfetto” tense with bold, so you could hear and look at Italian language.

If you need to develope your comprehension skills, but you cannot speak to Italian people, I think that music is the right way to do that.

Ciao, buon fine settimana

Study Italian in Rome

Posted by Monica Corrias on August 15, 2007

Are you moving to Italy to enjoy Italian life and culture? Would you like to study Italian in relaxed and friendly atmosphere? What about Rome? I suggest you to come in September or in October.
Ciao Italia (Italian language school in Rome) is open the whole year round and lessons are normally given from Monday to Friday (mornings and afternoons), except during national or local holidays, and today August 15th is one of them, but Rome is amazing and museum and tourist place are open today so our students are enjoying Rome.
The school offers courses for all levels – from beginners to advanced – therefore generally I teach students in different levels. I can teach classes with people of different nationalities who have a similar language level (group are maximum 12 students), or private lessons.
The teaching structure in Ciao Italia school breaks down into 5 levels:
Level 1, for absolute beginners;
Level 2, elementary: for those who have some basic knowledge;
Level 3, pre-intermediate: more complex sentences and terms;
Level 4, intermediate: higher comprehension of spoken and written Italian.
Level 5, advanced: is for students who have a good knowledge of the language, both theoretical and practical.
Also I taught students for the University entrance exam or the C.I.L.S. certificates (Università per Stranieri di Siena).

If you like, you can test your Italian on line here.

Ciao, a breve la prossima lezione on line e ricorda: “All roads lead to Rome” = “Tutte le strade portano a Roma”

Learn Italian language and eat carbonara spaghetti

Posted by Monica Corrias on August 12, 2007

How are you today? Ciao, come state oggi?
How is your Italian language?
I know, you would not have to study only grammar but speak and live Italian, but since you do not live or study in Italy you have a few time to practice the language, therefore learning some basic grammatical structures speeds up the rate at which you improve your Italian.
It is extremely useful for you now to keep your Italian fresh by continuing to study it as well as use it.
I am sure your Italian skills will improve more if you have time to review and make note for it. But if you have got the time, why don’t make a good “Carbonara” pasta and study Italian grammar too?

(In Italian language, when we speak in general or we give direction we can use the infinitive or the imperative mood, but also we can use the Impersonal form, so here I used the Impersonal form)

You could even listen to Italian songs (new links are on page “classes”)
It is a very useful and good way to learn and practice Italian!

Take care, ciao e buon appetito

Italian “passato prossimo” and modal verbs

Posted by Monica Corrias on August 5, 2007

Ciao, come state?

Are you learning Italian or are you on vacation/holiday? You could read and listen to this ironic song.

I wrote for you the last lesson on “Italian passato prossimo“.

Sì, ho inserito l’ultima parte delle lezioni sul passato prossimo, così ora potete ascoltare un po’ più facilmente la musica italiana e noi possiamo cambiare argomento grammaticale.

Buona giornata a tutti e soprattutto godetevi l’estate.
