Italian Language Game: A mezzogiorno



Italian Language Game: "A mezzogiorno" - At noon.
Learn and practice 13 Italian words and phrases in the context of a mini-story.
This mini-story is also part of our gamified Italian 1 course. (You can play the complete course for FREE by registering HERE.)
Say the words and phrases OUT LOUD after the native speaker. It will help improve your pronunciation and your listening skills.
Note that in Italian, the words for "I, you, he, she" etc. are often dropped, unless they are needed for clarity or emphasis. In our mini-story, the context will tell you if "gli mostra" means "she shows him" or "he shows him."
After you've practiced and recalled the individual words, you'll hear the mini-story again.
Listen and say the sentences along with the speaker. Try not to translate!
