Learn Italian online with free audio lessons

These easy Italian language lessons contain sentences in English and Italian and are taken from the Italian audio course “Ripeti con me!”.

Each audio lesson covers a particular grammar pattern. For example, there’s one lesson to learn singular and plural (one cat, two cats…), one lesson to learn how to say “can” (I can speak, you can eat…), etc. It also repeats useful vocabulary on the way.

While this preview showcases the concept and the program of the course, you start to feel the effects – thinking and speaking naturally in Italian – only after a few days of taking the full lessons (each made up of 30 sentences).

And now, it’s time to learn!

There are 3 files for each lesson. You can download them and listen to them like the best podcast to learn Italian. However, passive listening won’t work. You need to repeat what you hear!

Click on the audio player in each lesson to listen to the audio and speak along with the speaker.

You can also download free Italian lessons in mp3 format.

It’s an excellent way to learn Italian while driving.

Now, let’s learn how to speak Italian free.

How to use these free Italian audio lessons

  1. In File A, you listen to a sentence in English and Italian, then shadow the Italian sentence (saying the same sentence while the speaker is still saying it).
  2. In File B, there’s a pause where you’re meant to say the sentence yourself in Italian. It’s alright if you can’t remember everything, just do your best and say what you can. Then, you can shadow it again.
  3. In File C, you only shadow the sentence.

This material is useful only if you repeat what you hear. Passive listening of resources like courses or podcasts has never made anyone fluent in languages.

If you takes these lessons in a series, you can learn how to speak Italian free.

italian audio course ripeti con me

Easy Italian lessons to learn Italian fast

“Ripeti Con Me!” is a uniquely effective course that teaches its users how to use a foreign language. It doesn’t just spit out vocabulary and grammar.

You’ll learn whole phrases and entire sentences so that you can learn the language in context, instead of learning words or grammar rules in isolation. Language learning needs context!

It’s perfect if you’re looking for a practical way to improve your ability to create correct sentences in Italian on the fly and speak Italian in a natural way. This collection of easy Italian audio lessons is so natural that you may find it hard to believe that something so simple could work so well!

Ripeti Con Me functions as a language learning gym. The entire program is built on top of a scientifically proven set of principles designed to take a learner directly to the heart of the language. This method is based on a few key principles:

  • Graduated Interval Recall. If you’re reminded of new words at gradually increasing intervals, each time you remember longer than the time before.
  • Teaching syntax over vocabulary. Most language courses focus on teaching a mixture of grammar and vocabulary, while this course is based on syntax. Have you ever invested a ton of time and energy into learning the grammar and vocabulary of a language, only to struggle to create intelligible sentences? While grammar and vocabulary are important when you’re learning a language, it’s knowing how to use both of these elements to create a correct sentence that really unlocks your Italian conversational abilities.
  • Principle of Anticipation. By systematically asking for understanding, pausing for a response, and then reinforcing the correct response, the audio in Ripeti Con Me accelerates learning, increases understanding, and activates new neural pathways in your brain.
  • Practical approach. The program’s focus on teaching syntax makes it ideal for increasing your ability to have conversations in a foreign language. If you work through the training sessions daily as they were designed, you will gain practical working knowledge of the Italian language. You will see improvement in your language abilities where they matter most: in real-life conversations.
  • Core Vocabulary. Effective communication in any language depends on the mastery of a relatively limited number of common Italian words and structures. Like Italian numbers. Trying to learn too much at once substantially slows the process, and many people quickly become discouraged. Ripeti Con Me deliberately limits the amount you learn at any one time, giving your brain a chance to internalize each new item before moving on. Once this foundation is built, adding new words and phrases becomes easy and natural because there’s a clear framework to attach them to.
  • Organic Learning. Every new item introduced Ripeti Con Me is given within the context of a conversation or exchange. This helps learning and retention in a multitude of ways, from allowing your brain to automatically integrate Italian intonation, rhythm, melody, and pronunciation, to embedding prompts for your memory. When you need a word, it’s there!

Learn Italian for free, better than books or podcasts!

So, you want to learn Italian for free?

Indeed, you can learn Italian with free audio lessons.

There’s plenty of resources to learn languages: podcasts for listening, grammar books, vocabulary lists to download, online courses. They’re all useful in some way.

However, listening passively to a podcast won’t make you fluent. Reading a book won’t improve your speaking skills. Stuffing vocabulary in your head won’t make you able to actually use it in conversation. Language learning needs practice.

So, if you liked these free Italian lessons and find them useful, download the Italian audio course “Ripeti con me!” and practice listening and speaking for real!
