Learn Advanced Italian: Improve Your Italian Comprehension and Cooking With Italian Conversation

Practice your Italian comprehension by watching this free video and audio. In this video I show you how to cook a dish called POMODORI COL RISO. This video is recorded in the Italian language and meant as a learning resource for you to practice your Italian comprehension and pronunciation skills. It is unscripted, natural and casual spoken Italian. One of the best way to improve your Italian is by listening to real Italian speak Italian. By doing this, you will train your ear to understand when people speak fast, and you will learn new idiomatic expressions, slang and vocabulary words. The better you get at Italian comprehension, the better your grammar will get too!

Even if students have Intermediate and Advanced knowledge of the Italian language, one thing they often struggle with, is speaking. You can know many Italian vocabulary words and phrases, but if you don’t know how to pronounce them, then no one will understand you. Many students used to tell me this when they were learning Italian with me, Manu. My response to them was, don’t overthink it! When learning any language – whether you are learning from English to Italian, or French to Italian, or Spanish, German to Italian, don’t overthink it! You can listen to more Italian videos and audios like podcasts or YouTube, to help your brain relax and just speak Italian.

  1. Grazie mille! I video mi aiutano tanto e sono anche molto interessanti. Studio l’italiano da 4 mesi ma posso capire quasi tutto senza sottotitoli e sono felicissima.
    Grazie mille, Manu!

  2. Quick question… What is the meaning/use of “ne”? I get something of a feel for it as some kind of “helper” word, but what is the difference between saying “Io ho un casino” and “Io ne ho un casino” as well as “ce ne serviranno due o tre de ti di aglio” as opposed to “ce serviranno due o tre…”?

  3. Excellent video! The option to use either Italian or English is a great, great tool because it allows students to entirely grasp (word by word) in both languages and one can then return to the video later for “shadowing” or just the next night up one’s ear and building up vocabulary. One again, excellent video and a great way to learn a recipe as well! Thanks!

  4. Hi from Iceland: you said “ci serve l´olio d´oliva, il basilico…, DELL´AGLIO” … why the use of del there? I have noticed Italians using this del in places where English and most other languages don´t use anything of the kind. “Vuoi della maionese nel tuo hamburger?” why use del ??

  5. wow….da vero che mi piace tantissimo guardare i tuoi video…supratutto questo video con i sottotitoli in italiano con la tua voce (excelente idea per practicare il mio accento)….a proposito, sto studiando italiano da 4 mesi e il tuoi video sono i megli (I typed this without use of my italian app) scusa si ho tanti errori
