My town: an Italian listening comprehension for beginners

My town: an Italian listening comprehension for beginners

How can you train your Italian listening comprehension when you’re a beginner (or false beginner)?

I hear so many students with the same two problems:


1) I struggle when speaking

2) I struggle when listening


This is not a surprise.

When you learn Italian, or any other language, on your own, you often do a lot of grammar, you read a lot, but then you don’t get the chance to speak or find something to listen to that is easy enough for a beginner.


So, here you have a simple listening comprehension to help you understand your first Italian words.


It works like this:


1) You’re going to listen to a short audio track three times.

2) After listening, you will find a few questions. Try and choose the correct answer.

3) Remember that you can listen to the track as many times as you want. 🙂


Are you ready?


Press play and have fun! 😀
