Italian Accelerator – Episode 1

By Manu Venditti | Advanced

Italian Accelerator Episode 1

This is the start of a new series for intermediate to advanced students. This is called “ITALIAN ACCELERATOR”.

It is a series of interviews divided into sections. Each episode is associated with lessons that will take your Italian speaking skills to the next level.

What you are about to see is a conversation between two Italians in their most natural way of speaking, just the same way Italians would speak when you go to Italy.


  1. Try to understand the overall context.
  2. Focus on the part/s that you don’t understand.
  3. Make a guess about the meaning that will provide the missing information.
  4. Practice makes progress! If you find it too hard for you at this time, then later as you build up your skills it will be easier.

In the next video, we are going to review the difficult parts that you might have misunderstood. And also, I’m going to teach you how to use it for you to become more conversational.

See you there!..

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
