You are here to improve your ability to speak and understand Italian, and you will if you use these resources strategically.

Below are clear and simple instructions on how you should use these learning materials.


  • Read the TRUE/FALSE questions below; they will help you focus on the main points you need to listen out for.


  • Listen to the audio once. Don’t focus on trying to understand every single word and sentence.
    The aim is to get the overall meaning. What is Manu talking about?
  • Listen to it again and see if you can pick out the key words and find the answers to the questions as you listen.
  • Listen to the audio as many times as you need – the more you listen the more you will understand. Try and identify words that you don’t know the meaning of and look them up.
    The most important thing is that you listen more than once!
