Chapter 2

Chapter 2 works just like Chapter 1

Watch the conversation between Chiara and Vittorio, then click through the rest of the videos to see them speak their words directly into the camera.

In addition, written materials are provided for your reference. In the vocabulary tab, you can see the vocabulary used in the video; in the grammar tab, you are introduced to basic Italian grammar.

Watching and listening to different people say the words and carry on a conversation lets your brain process the language on several levels.
