Italiano in Famiglia
Italiano in Famiglia is a fantastic online video series created specifically for foreign language speakers trying to learn italian.
The programme itself and website are completely in Italian so you get that sort of immersion feeling but in a much gentler way (it is aimed at people with no knowledge at all).
Each episode is split into 2 videos, “La Puntata” – the episode and “La Didattica” – the hosts talk you through the words used. There’s also PDF downloads of the dialog and various other resources.
Anyone at beginner level should definitely check this one out.
From the site, click “Il Progetto” for a list of episodes (it runs for 2 seasons)
