News in Slow Italian

Learn Italian through current events!

Since 2013, we have been producing a weekly intermediate Italian podcast with news stories, conversation and culture for Italian language learners and language lovers around the world.

On our program, we emphasize key aspects of language learning, including listening comprehension, rapid vocabulary expansion, Italian grammar, common idiomatic expressions, interactive pronunciation and grammar exercises. Each week, our hosts discuss current news and Italian culture at a slow pace that will help you understand.

On our website, you will find a comprehensive catalog of grammar and expressions lessons, from beginning to intermediate Italian. However, you don’t actually need an extensive vocabulary to start enjoying our program! The transcripts available on our website and mobile app offer optional, contextual translation. That means we don’t translate the entire text. Instead, we focus on key words and phrases that appear when you hover over them. This maintains the natural Italian sentence structure, and allows us to preserve an immersive listening experience.

What we offer is much more than multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank activities – we bring you real language you can understand, and use. Listen to engaging conversation and follow along with the interactive transcripts, and you’ll be surprised to discover that you know more Italian than you think!
