In the autumn/fall of 2018, Imparareonline Ltd. launched a new website, EasyItalianNews.com.
Our aim was (and is) to encourage students of Italian around the world to READ and LISTEN TO Italian more often, so it becomes a habit.
Reading and listening to the language you’re learning gives you a vital context for the grammar and vocabulary.
It makes your course, lessons or self-study more effective – as if you’re planting seeds in fertile soil rather than scattering (the new grammar) on stony ground!
Reading/listening to EasyItalianNews.com will help you develop the skills you need to deal with ‘authentic’ texts and situations in which you need to understand speech.
The site is designed as a ‘stepping-stone’ to help you transition to reading and listening to ‘real’ Italian.
It’s an intermediate stage, between not reading/listening to Italian at all (many people’s current state), and happily reading/listening to Italian media (an important future goal!)
Of course, we recommend that you read/listen regularly.
Read/listen just once or twice and you probably won’t notice much difference – your brain needs time to learn new things.
But make reading/listening a habit?
Listen to & read each ‘easy news’ bulletin for several weeks, or better, months?
You WILL notice the improvement, we promise!
But in any case, EasyItalianNews.com is FREE to use, so there’s no reason not to give it a try!
