Books in bites

An unconventional way to learn Italian in your spare time, at your own pace
booksinbites

Who is this program for?

If practicing Italian more often feels more like a challenge than a pleasurable moment. If motivation and excitement seem like a distant memory and the daily routine takes over and suddenly you realize that the last time you practice Italian was on the previous calendar page…

I get you!

Learning a language when you have a busy life is not easy! This is why I have created Books in Bites, a monthly program where you will gain confidence, motivation, and skills at your own pace.

How it works

Every week an interesting theme with an unconventional outlook will be prompted.

  • Mondays: a discussion prompt based on the week’s topic 
  • Thursdays: a reading and language focussed activities
  • Saturdays: play charades with the weekly vocabulary

+ Question Corner: a place to clear your doubts – ask Martina!

To have an example: take a look at the August Activity Calendar here.

The program runs monthly > next start date TBA

We will use FlipGrid as a platform to interact* (both available on computer and App) and your answers will be private (only I will have access to them), so you can feel free to experiment with your language learning!

You can do this at your own pace: during a break, at breakfast, in your PJs before going to sleep… when you have time! 

 

* Not familiar with FlipGrid? I made a full FlipGrid walkthrough video for you here.

Testimonials

  • I love the feedback

    I loved the feedback on my recordings… Being able to replay the feedback and then re-listen to my recording, really makes it stick, more than when I get corrected in a live lesson. It’s a great method.

  • It's different than 1:1

    By reading at your own pace you can get a different feeling vs grasping general concepts in 1:1 lessons.

  • Keeps me on track

    I enjoyed the reading exercises, crosswords, etc. and I like the idea of structure because it “forces” me to do a specific thing by a specific date so I don’t fall behind.

  • What I need to improve my speaking

    As time when on, my comfort level increased and so I very much appreciated this forum. It is exactly what is necessary to improve my comfort with speaking.
