What are conversational Italian classes?

If your current method of studying does not allow you to practice speaking or to practise it enough, a speaking class is what you need.

Firstly, we design our conversational Italian class to develop speaking. To achieve this, the lesson needs to offer stimulating topics so that students are compelled to speak. Moreover, and especially at lower levels, the lesson needs to be structured so that students don’t lose focus and don’t run out of things to say. Hence, the lesson needs to be divided into stages: some of them will focus on speaking, some on lexis and some on pronunciation. And in so doing, the lesson will be varied and more interesting.

Why are they different from regular lessons?

Conversational classes are different from a regular lesson because they have one main aim: speaking. Specifically, the focus of a conversation class does not have to compete with different aims such as developing other skills, for example listening, writing and reading and of course, grammar. Undoubtedly, these skills are essential for learning Italian and indeed are the basis of our more complex Italian courses. Please see our full range here.

Having said that, if you are taking an online course or doing self-paced learning, you can develop all of the above skills with the exception of speaking. So this course is focused on filling that gap.

Finally, even though speaking is the focus of the conversational class, it will also focus on developing your vocabulary and pronunciation. These are crucial to your speaking and should go hand in hand in a conversation class.

Why is a conversational Italian class not a chat?

A conversation class is not just an informal chat, but a class planned to develop speaking. To clarify, a chat is great in real situations especially when you can take your time. This can be very beneficial to your language skills. However, in a classroom setting, time is limited. This is why planning and structuring the lesson offers a richer and more effective way of developing speaking.

In addition, at Parla Italiano, we design the activities specifically for your level so that you can feel in control and enjoy the experience in a relaxed environment. Having said that, students in our classes, can experiment with new language and unleash their creativity as well.
