Do you want to read texts written in Italian on a simpler level? Our magazine collects the best short stories or writings which were written by students for our blog, accompanied by illustrations and unusual and interesting facts about the Italian language, culture, and society. The magazine is formatted and illustrated in a way which makes reading it an enjoyable way to study the Italian language. Every three months you will receive a new issue in a digital format which you will be able to read on a pc, tablet and smartphone. Or, you will be able to print and read on paper.
Do you want to learn Italian through writing? Sometimes writing lets us think more about the language and enables us to correctly put into place what we have learned. You can send up to 4 texts, each one up to a maximum of 2000 keystrokes (one page), on a theme of your choice or on the one we have chosen. The compositions will receive individualized and thorough corrections through the use of a page explaining the grammar. Later, if you wish, your compositions will be published in our blog and in our magazine.
Do you want to put into practice what you have learned? You will have one hour to talk about everything that you want to discuss. This is the moment to delve into the questions you faced in the course of the webinars, in the writings in the magazines, or in the writing of your own texts. If you like this time for conversation, you could choose to enroll yourself in individual conversation lessons.
