Italian Conversation Clinic

Come to the clinic and work out the kinks in your Italian conversation skills!

FOCUS:Speaking – the most critical part of  foreign language skills, and usually the one that scares people the most. Here you’ll find a fun and supportive environment that will put you at ease and gently encourage you to express yourself with greater confidence.

Isola d’Ischia

THEME of this month’s* clinic:  Ischia!  

The idyllic island of Ischia will be the setting of this clinic to help you improve your ability to communicate in Italian, complete with slideshow of recent photos from the Italiano With Jodina Amalfi Coast Tour that will serve as a springboard to lively and interesting conversation. (*If it’s well-received, we’ll try to do a monthly clinic.)

Join us for an enjoyable (and productive) Saturday morning where you can practice speaking Italian!

All levels are welcome – from beginner to the most advanced. And because all are welcome, everyone who attends will gain something of value from this conversation experience. Those with mid to greater level of skills will have a chance to speak, and those just starting out will (at the very least) have the important opportunity to hear the language spoken and learn new words and phrases, with lots of encouragement and support from other attendees.

Under the gentle guidance of Jodina, a certified language teacher who exercised her skills for nearly a decade in Milano and has been instructing Italian in North County since 2009, this Conversation Clinic will focus on key words and language structures, listening comprehension and conversation-starter questions to break the ice and get you conversing in Italian. Plus, you’ll have the chance to get your pressing language questions answered by an experienced teacher.

Whether you’re already enrolled in a regular Italian class, studying on your own, or have been waiting for a chance to brush up on your speaking skills, this special gathering is for you!

Come to the Conversation Clinic and give your Italian speaking skills a booster shot!

Coffee, tea and water will be provided. Feel free to bring snacks if you’d like.
