Explainer Lesson #1

Expressions explained in this lesson:

COME CI SIAMO CONOSCIUTI

TRAMITE LA MIA MAESTRA

STAVI CERCANDO

CI SIAMO MESSI IN CONTATTO

Italian Accelerator is the course you’ve been dreaming of for the longest time! 

Each Episode is made up of two components
First a chat 100% in Italian between me and one of my Italian friends. These chats are 100% real, authentic, unscripted Italian, including very colloquial expressions and … at full speed! Just like you would speak with your friends in your language. 

Then there is an Explainer Lesson, this time in English, where we revisit the chat in Italian and analyze its content, including:

– vocabulary
– slang
– idiomatic expressions
– specific grammatical points
