Intrepid Italian for Confident Conversations is a 20-part story training program that uses comprehensive input and my 80/20 method to improve your ability to understand and take part in real-life, fast conversations.

That way, you never need to figure anything out or wonder what to do next. Not sure what an expression means? I give you transcripts and vocabulary lists with explanations so you're never lost. Not sure why they used the subjunctive tense to say that phrase? I explain why, step-by-step. Think of any questions you may have about colloquial Italian and I cover it inside this comprehensive training program.
Q: “Why should I invest in this course when Duolingo is free?”
Duolingo is a great language tool to learn vocabulary when you've got plenty of time on your hands and don’t have any specific language goals that you’re working towards. What Duolingo doesn’t give you is a clear roadmap to learning real-world, spoken Italian.
With Intrepid Italian for Confident Conversations you learn colloquial speech that is slightly above your current level in Italian. That way, you're challenged, but not overwhelmed. What you get is targeted learning for your level, that doesn’t waste your time.
Have you ever seen those funny memes called, “Stuff Duolingo Says” that share examples of strange phrases Duolingo teaches you? For example, one of them was “I’m eating bread and crying on the floor”, another one is “They are washing the holy potato”. Seriously, Google it and you’ll see what I mean.
Plus, with my course, you also get access to a private Facebook group with direct access to me (your teacher) where you can ask for feedback and receive extra support and accountability.
Q: "What if I am unhappy with the course?"
I would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact me within the first 30 days and I will give you a full refund.
