CAFFE’ CON CHIARA EXPERIENCE – BASIC ITALIAN to get by, COFFEE CULTURE, CURIOSITÀ, & LIFESTYLE
Understanding Italy through the language
“Caffè con Chiara”, together with “Caffè & Giornale” and “ Italiano in Cinquecento” are the three available on line courses that we offer based on different levels.
“Caffè con Chiara” is now also available as hands-on experience (field experience).
As soon as you will be again able to travel, follow me on a stroll (una passeggiata)in Siena starting the experience in the morning in front of a cup of coffee and a pastry. I’ll provide the meeting point at a nice café. We’ll get to know each other’s and you will learn basic Italian expressions to introduce yourself and meet other people (about 1 hour Italian lesson).
The lesson and our time together, will be, “naturalmente”, tailored-made around your Italian level. Whether you are a complete beginner or you are fluent with the language, I will adjust my pace to your needs.
After coffee and lesson, I will then take you for a walk in the old town to discover artisans and artists laboratories hidden among the narrow alleys.
We’ll visit some interesting food shopping places while learning some new language expressions for ordering food at restaurants/cafés and make grocery shopping.
We will meet vendors and you have the chance to practice Italian.
While learning the language, I will also teach you some curiosities about food culture in Italy. Our experience will end with a stop in one of my favourite places where you can enjoy cheese and salumi tasting …all to help you better understanding Italy of course!
Participating to my experience won’t make you fluent in Italian, but you will be able to order coffee, food and do some shopping using useful words and phrases while in Italy. You will get to meet locals and I will help you understanding Italian lifestyle and habits.
The experience includes a linguistic guide for “surviving in Italy”.
