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.

– idiomatic expressions
– specific grammatical points
