The benefits of chatting with our native Italian speakers

Taking the leap and speaking with an Italian in Italian for the first time can be a very daunting thought, especially if you are a beginner. Even if you’ve been learning Italian for a longer period of time, you may have not had many opportunities to really put what you know into practice.

5/5

Cristiana

Laureata in “Lettere e Filosofia” – Ho insegnato Italiano, storia e filosofia alle scuole superiori italiane per 17 anni

Graduated in “Literature and Philosophy” – I taught Italian, history and philosophy in Italian high schools for 17 years.

La data di nascita non la dico… preferisco sperare che mi credano più giovane di quanto non sia!

I don’t tell people my date of birth… I prefer to hope that people think I’m younger than I am

Triestina fin nel midollo

Triestine to the bone

  • Amo la lettura e leggo praticamente di tutto… ma se volete farmi stare buona (e zitta) per davvero, datemi un bel libro giallo (sogno un’autrice che sia la vera erede di Agatha Christie!)

    I love reading and I read practically everything… but if you want to make me stay quiet (and shut up) for real, then give me a good crime novel (I dream of an author who is the true heir of Agatha Christie!).

  • Amo la musica di ogni genere ma deve essere melodica… anche e soprattutto quella degli anni 60-70-80. Il resto per me son “tamburi e rumore”. Se voglio rilassarmi ascolto la musica classica (adoro i Notturni di Chopin!) o le melodie celtiche.

    I love all kinds of music, but it has to have a nice melody… including and especially the music of the 60s, 70s and 80s. To me, everything else is just “drums and noise”. If I want to relax, I listen to classical music (I love Chopin's Nocturnes!) or Celtic songs.

  • Quando non parlo e non dormo, cucino! Amo il cibo… e considero cucinare per le persone che amo uno dei più bei modi di dire “ti voglio bene!”

    When I’m not talking or sleeping, I cook! I love food…and I consider cooking for the people I love to be one of the most beautiful ways of saying “I love you!”

La cosa che mi riesce meglio? Parlare, parlare, parlare… e se sto zitta vuol dire che sto dormendo! Posso essere sintetica se voglio, ma non mi piace!

What I do best? Talk, Talk, Talk… and if I’m silent then it means I’m sleeping! I can be brief if I want to, but I don't like it!

Ho un’ossessione per il Congiuntivo

I am obsessed with the Subjunctive

Detesto farmi fotografare… ma adoro fotografare gli altri!

I hate to be photographed…but I love to photograph others!

Sebbene sia l’ottavo nano di Biancaneve (mi hanno detto che sono alta 1 metro+ un’aspirina), da giovane giocavo a pallavolo. Ora invece mi piace fare lunghissime passeggiate nel bosco o lungo la spiaggia.

Although I'm Snow White's eighth dwarf (I've been told that I'm a smidgeon over 1 meter tall), I used to play volleyball when I was young. Now I like to take long walks in the woods or along the beach.

    Mens sana in corpore sano: I strongly value the importance of good skin care. As for make-up? It’s the art form that I do best!

Piccola ossessione: l'armocromia -> amo giocare con l’armonia dei colori e abbinarli tra loro nel mondo dell’abbigliamento, del make-up, degli accessori e dell’arredamento

Little obsession: armochromia -> I love to play with the harmony of colors and match them together in the world of clothing, make-up, accessories and furniture

Hobby inusuale? Mi diletto nell’arte del ricamo e del cucito

Diffido da chi si meraviglia per qualunque opera d’arte, senza distinzione: è così bello individuare i propri gusti personali!
