You are attending Italian or French courses and you want to practice or maintain your level between the lessons with your teacher? The online resources are exactly what you need! A good teacher in languages knows that, to improve the level in a foreign language, 15 minutes of practice every day are more effective than 3 hours a week in one shot. All you need is a little bit of motivation and an Internet connexion. Online resources are free and you will quickly see your improvement.
Follow my suggestions, try these useful on-line ressources to practice French & Italian languages between the lessons with your teacher: you will find news, fun activities such as singing or cinema, e-books, interactive exercises… I also teach Italian and French to children and adults during fun cooking lessons!
French and Italian language are at your fingertips: what are you waiting to start?

Some useful Tips:
Post written by Serafina Loggia, Graduate in Foreign, Applied Languages (Italian, French and English), working as freelance translator, Interpreter and trainer in languages since 2010.
“I teach French & Italian to children and adults. In France, I collaborate with important language Schools such as InLingua, AST Language Services and Adiscos. During my experience I have noticed that, to improve a level in a foreign language, activities and demonstrations are more efficient than reading books and doing written exercises. In my courses, I mostly use the method called “immersion”, which combine the use of the languages with demonstrations and fun activities (here an example). I believe that communicating and sharing knowledge and experience is the easiest and quick way to efficiently learn a foreign language”.
