The perfect restaurant where you can speak Italian Magically

Scritto da speakitalianmagically.com il 3 agosto 2012

If an image is worth a thousand words…what is an image (or a collage of images) that you created yourself worth?

What do you think about it?

Of course there are people who like to learn by listening, others who prefer to see things and others who really enjoy doing things to learn. And there’s an ancient Chinese proverb that goes:

“I listen and forget, I read and understand, I see and remember, I do and learn”

Imagine if you listen, read, create something with the material you need to learn…do you think you’ll remember it? My opinion is that if you do all of them together you increase the chance to remember and absorb what you want to learn.

A dear student of mine, let’s call him Vittorio (his Italian identity;-)), is doing this in his learning journey and he even created a menu out of the episode 7 of Speak Italian Magically. With his permission, I am sharing it with you and you can consider it as an extra bonus material for the Speak Italian Magically course. Click on the image below or here to enjoy a free and nice meal out of the course.

What about you? If you have spare time and you want to speak Italian very well, why don’t you create your personal collection of images or personal movies out of what you’re learning? I’ll be happy to check it out and share it through this web site.That would be really worth more than un miliardo di parole;-)

By the way, Vittorio has also written what he thinks about the book and the course and you can read it here!

How do you want it? Paperback or digital ebook?

Scritto da speakitalianmagically.com il 24 dicembre 2010

That is a strange question, indeed, if you think about the fact that a few years ago the only thing you could have was a book in paperback. When I was a teenager I didn’t even have  an mp3 reader! We had cassettes that could only give us 60-90 minutes of music. Well, if I think how the world has changed, my mind starts to wander and let me feel that we dreamed of the future, but we may not have realised that the future is here.

You can have everything you want today. You can if you want. Let me tell you the secret history of this book. Ten months ago I had an idea. Well, it was a question to answer after all. How can you learn and speak a language faster than you do now? Then I had the idea…I saw my self already having the answer to that. I saw myself as vividly as I could and with all my senses. I saw my self with this book in my hands, I heard what I could hear having this book in my hands (I even listened  to what my wife could tell me in such a case) and I felt as if I had already done it. Given the results, I think that this is really the secret to achieve anything in life. To see yourself having already done what you want to achieve. After all, didn’t they say “the body won’t go where the mind has not gone first”? And if you want to Speak Italian Magically,why don’t you imagine yourself as if you already speak Italian and fluently?

What about me then? What happened to me after this visualization then? I just found the right books, the right web links and the right ideas to create an improvement of other ideas and approaches to learn Italian faster. I just found my self at the right moment and at the right place. I also had an intuition about the book title. I remember as if it was now, I was in my car and I had what people call it an AH AH moment and I thought: “This is the right title for this book!”

Then I used Mary Loverde approach and I broke what I had to do into several micro-actions and only did those.

Four months ago I managed to publish the digital version  of the book.

As you may have realised by reading the first part of this post, I grew up in a different world (even though I like today’s world too), so I felt as if something was missing. When I imagined myself having this book in my hands, it wasn’t a digital version, it was a proper paperback and I could touch it, smell the paper pages.

How could I have a paperback without spending much money?

I found the answer for this too: print on demand!!!

So for those of you who, like me, want to have something in your hands, I am proud to announce that the paperback version of Speak Italian Magically is available!!!

Go to https://www.createspace.com/3497042 e insert the following discount code to get 30% off: ZHC3APRR Valid till January 15, 2011

The main difference with the ebook version: Beside being it in paper;-), I decided to give to you included in the price all 20 audio files, almost 3 hours of guided phantasies into Italy and Italian!

Here you have a video where I touch with my hands both versions! Enjoy!

And, by the way, BUON NATALE!!!

A free preview of Speak Italian Magically

Scritto da speakitalianmagically.com il 28 ottobre 2010

Ciao a tutti! Many of you have been asking for a more complete free preview of the method. So, I decided to let you try the course using the ISSUU technology.

Before clicking on the following multimedia files remember the suggested steps to maximize your experience with the course.

Steps for each episode

1. Find a comfortable place in a relaxing environment, such as an easy chair or on a bed. Imagine you are a child again and you are about to have fun while discovering your new language -Italian. Listen to the adventure while enjoying the experience and let your mind wander with the images and feelings from the recordings.

2. Listen to the adventure again as you read the script from the playbook. Get involved! Highlight each new words, underline and circle the book with colored pens and markers. Color the drawings in the script. Draw your own! It’s fun! This playbook is yours to draw in: do it and enjoy! All this helps activate your right brain.

3. After that you will feel comfortable to listen to the Italian only version of the adventure and feel proud as you understand everything.

4. Playfully answer the questions presented at the end of each script.

5. Speak in chorus with the Italian only version of the adventure. Get synchronized with the Italian voice and speak with it. This is a little challenge, but it is fun and really helps your brain understand that you really want to speak Italian!

6. Look at the mind map and imagine the adventure while looking at it. Write down the words you easily remember on the mind map branches. Create your own mind map. It’s fun and will help you remember words.

7. Do you also want to improve your writing skills? Use play and pause to create your own dictation exercise. Write down what you listen, then check how good you are!

Now, click here and enjoy the free preview!
