SEI UN FRATELLO, I TUOI VIDEO MI AIUTANO TANTO. GRAZIEEEEEE……!!! :-* :-* :-* Reply Mikasa Ackerman says: April 8, 2017 at 8:53 pm io sono italiano, e sei molto bravo! 👏👏👏 complimenti, sembri quasi madrelingua, tanti stranieri che abitano qua da anni lo parlano molto, ma molto peggio di te, e da parte di tutti ti ringrazio di fare la tua parte per insegnare questa fantastica lingua, che a mio avviso è troppo poco studiata nel mondo… 😊 se volessi, potrei mandarti un video anche con una raccolta di modi di dire, abbreviazioni, anche suoni che utilizziamo per descrivere certi stati d'animo o situazioni…Il francese per noi non è difficilissimo, ma devo ammettere che, personalmente, gli accenti, e a volte la pronuncia di essi… Reply maria elena jimenez says: April 8, 2017 at 10:21 pm grazie mille tom. come sempre I tuoi video sono molto utili. e non fù annoiosa la lezione 😁 se mi permetti una domanda: che significa cioè?? non mi ricordo, lol.

Reply Fabian López says: April 10, 2017 at 7:10 pm I would like to know how much time do you spend learning a new language, and it could be amazing if you start a serie (or something like that) learning a new language with us.

Reply Zane van Niekerk says: April 13, 2017 at 3:54 pm Awesome man, I have been learning Italian with Duolingo for more than a year already. I am happy that I found you on YouTube. I still have not had a conversation in Italian yet but listening to you speak slowly is awesome and understanding what you saying is really motivating. Keep up the good work. Maybe I should try some French as well as we do have some French speaking people living here in South Africa. Reply Claudia Oliver says: April 15, 2017 at 1:26 pm If I watch this and slow the speed down one notch I can follow it.

Reply Mattia Manisi says: April 16, 2017 at 3:50 pm tranquillo, ho appena visto questo video per la prima volta e pensavo fossi italiano, raddoppiavi anche troppo alcune consonanti e ti mimetizzavi bene, se non fosse per "naturalmente", che lo dici spesso natoralmente. Reply GAMIETTE Cloe says: April 16, 2017 at 6:16 pm Capisco tutti! Mi piace questi video, è uno buono esercizio per migliorare mia comprensione.

I ve been learning Italian for the past two years and I find your videos very useful. I hope you don't mind my telling you that you forgot using the congiuntive mood on the second half of your statement on minute 3:30. That shows how much I enjoy your videos and how much attention I pay to your explanations. Take care. Reply patrick john says: May 14, 2017 at 12:45 am sir what is. vi sia piaciuto?why you used 'Sia'?Along with it im very much greatful to you for this video i have understood for the first time each and every single word you spoke. sono molto contento che lei fatto questo video solo nel l'italiano per noi.

Ho sentito che tu hai detto "nel modo DI cui" ma io credo che bisogna dire " nel modo IN cui" Reply Maria P. says: May 21, 2017 at 7:45 pm I can't believe you're not Italian.

Hai la nonna italiana e vai da lei a fare la salsa.. certo che è tua a pieno diritto! Ma è anche ovvio che ognuno ha il diritto di impararla 🙂 Reply Camille S says: May 29, 2017 at 5:37 am Weilà Tom grazie mille! Reply id k says: June 4, 2017 at 4:04 am hai davvero una bella pronuncia italiana Reply life issimple says: June 17, 2017 at 5:04 pm sono algerino, ho 17 anni, la mia madrelingua è diversa dalle altre.. ma penso che imparare le lingue sia stra-facile.. per il francese, dovresti essere determinato.. and there is something special concerning the french pronunciation, which is fragility and delicacy Reply Kyla Grace says: June 17, 2017 at 9:06 pm So I learned Spanish in Argentina and it's pretty easy to understand everything you're saying. How interesting. Reply j says: June 21, 2017 at 7:55 am How long is he learning italian? 🙂 Reply brinyite says: June 23, 2017 at 1:41 am Nice to see your return to us beginners…i followed you for a while, but i lost you in most of your all Italian videos..Glad to see you teaching to us n00bs again. !!

Reply maximum power says: July 21, 2017 at 12:25 pm un´aiuta perfetta per studiare l´italiana. grazie ! Reply John P says: September 25, 2017 at 12:00 pm Hey Tom – I have a question for you. @ 3:23 you used the congiuntivo presente to conjugate the verb piacere, but your following statement @ 3:28 you used the indicativo presente to conjugate the verb avere instead of the congiuntivo presente. I would've thought that since you started both sentences with "spero" that both would be using the congiuntivo presente? Just confused. Thanks for the great work! Reply Татьяна Крапивина says: October 29, 2017 at 2:03 pm Ottimo lezione, grazie. Capisco tutto. Ciao Reply UseCactus says: November 24, 2017 at 2:39 pm Speed this video by 2x and u'll get the speed of average italian monologue 😀BTW grazie mille per fare il questo video 😉 Reply Maria Prato says: December 1, 2017 at 4:28 pm ottima idea tom! grazie Reply hania Brown says: December 25, 2017 at 8:26 pm hey tom can you recommend italian movies and songs for us beginners or i think this is how i get hooked to learning new stuff Reply Paul Donati says: January 18, 2018 at 4:09 pm Excellent.

Reply viola lapantera says: August 28, 2018 at 7:18 am BRAVISSIMO!!!! Sono italiana e la tua pronuncia è pazzesca, parli davvero bene!!! Solo per aiutarti a migliorare (e diventare quasi perfetto): "Nel modo IN cui sto parlando….". Reply Super Intendend says: August 28, 2018 at 4:23 pm I tried to translate everything he said in this video. Please, let me know if you find any mistakes! Hey there! How are you? I hope very good! In this video, I will talk entirely in Italian and only in Italian. And why am I only talking in Italian and so slowly? What are the reasons? So, I am trying to do an exercise for all those who want to improve their pronounciation and also their comprehension of the Italian language. I know, for me, a language student, it is very useful to listen to a person speaking slowly to the language I am studying. But I would like to stress (out) that Italian is not my mothertongue. My mother language is English. Not all Italians talk in the same way as I’m talking now. And, naturally, I am speaking quite slowly trying to pronounce every single word and to put emphasis to where I think it is necessary. Not long ago, one of you had written to me, wondering if it would be possible to make a video like this. And immediately I made myself (an) account that this was a good idea. (?) (E subito mi sono reso conto che questa era un’ottima idea.) Because I know in terms of students it can be very useful and also I am studying French at the moment. And also, if French is a different Latin language – a different language which derives from Latin – It is not difficult for a person like me who can already speak a different language that derives from Latin – Italian. But, of course, with each new thing that we are looking for to learn, like a foreign language, there are always on of these difficulties. And, for me, one of the problems that I have withFrench is the pronounciation and then of course the comprehension. Namely, how we cane or in general understand the French when they talk. Because, of course, I don’t live in a country where the people speak French, not even Italian, everyone here in my country speaks Italian. You are all fantastic! Reply Jaime Acosta says: September 8, 2018 at 5:06 pm I could understand almost everything because as he said, it is a latin language and I'm native in another latin languageSPANISH! 😃 Reply Dado † says: September 13, 2018 at 6:19 pm pensavo fossi italiano 😂😨 hai una pronuncia perfetta Reply Natnicha Srichamnarn says: September 18, 2018 at 4:20 pm Love your video. I have been learning Italian for a while. It’s good to practice listening at this pace. Reply QuirkyQuillify says: October 8, 2018 at 9:17 am So helpful! Please do more videos like this. Appreciate you speaking more slowly and clearly. Reply Tony M says: November 23, 2018 at 9:06 am This is video is excellent, but would be even better if (1) you did the same thing, speaking at a normal speed, and (2) had a native speaker speaking the same thing, at normal speed. I think that sort of progression would really help train the beginner's ear. Reply Mariposa Zuzu says: November 27, 2018 at 8:34 pm Thank you .I understood all Reply Giorgio Colleoni says: November 28, 2018 at 10:31 pm Devi essere orgoglioso Tom, noi italiani (mi permetto di dirlo a nome del popolo intero) siamo contenti di te. Sei uno di noi ormai. Grazie per tenere viva la memoria della nostra lingua e cultura. Reply Walt Miller says: December 14, 2018 at 3:26 pm Io capire in velocità 2x 🤣 Reply Feyona van Dalfsen says: January 18, 2019 at 6:34 pm Didn't understand why you said "lentamente" because to me it was very fast. Turned out I had the speed on 1,5 without realizing 😅 Reply ع . ن . says: February 21, 2019 at 6:25 am I'm so glad I found this, thanks!
