Are you attending an evening class in Italian?
Perhaps you’re planning to visit Italy and study intensively for a few weeks, or months?
Or maybe you take online Italian lessons via Skype?
But did you know, you’ll get more out of your classes, course or online lessons if you can boost your comprehension skills (reading texts & listening) before you begin?
Picture this – it’s the first day of your course, or your first online lesson, and the teacher is speaking Italian.
Perhaps you haven’t listened to much Italian recently, in which case you might not feel prepared, which is a shame…
Here’s an alternative scenario – it’s the first day of your course, or your first online lesson, and the teacher is speaking Italian.
But you’re cool with that, because you pratice listening in Italian often.
You know you won’t understand everything, but you’re confident you can pick out key words and phrases.
Experience has taught you that you don’t need to understand everything that’s said.
Also that if you relax and listen, you can usually get the gist of it.
Thank goodness for all those hours of practice you did…
So how exactly can you build those vital listening/reading comprehension skills before you start your classes or lessons?
And isn’t that what the course is for, anyway?
Well it is… Certainly!
But you’ll make a lot better progress, and feel a lot happier, if you do some preparation before you start.
