Chigusa: Now, if you’re brand new and don’t know what the Dialogue is...
Peter: Listeners, it’s a Premium study tool you can find in every lesson.
Chigusa: In fact, you probably saw it when you first signed up.
Peter: The Dialogue is a line-by-line breakdown...
Chigusa: ...of the conversations in your lessons.
Peter: With it, you get the dialogue script in the target language...
Chigusa: You get the romanized version, the translated script...
Peter: ...audio pronunciations...
Chigusa: ...and access to a voice recorder for each line.
Peter: But, what makes this Study Tool so powerful?
Chigusa: Listeners, the Dialogue makes mastering conversations super-easy.
Peter: Here’s why. It breaks down the lesson conversations, one line at a time.
Chigusa:...so that you understand every line, phrase and word...
Peter: ...without getting overwhelmed. And you can also use it to master...
Chigusa: ...speaking, reading, listening and writing.
Peter: So, Chigusa, let’s start with speaking first.
Chigusa: Okay. First, when you listen to a lesson, use the dialogue to read along...
Peter: ...and listeners, this is important- as you listen, speak out loud. Repeat what you hear.
Chigusa: You can also click on the audio icon next to the line to hear it... and then just repeat out loud.
Peter: You can do this as many times as you want. Now, if you want to perfect your pronunciation...
Chigusa: ... click on the microphone icon to start recording,
Peter: Then record and compare your pronunciation with the native speaker.
Chigusa: These tactics get you speaking in minutes, and if you apply these to every lesson...
Peter: ...you’ll be speaking a ton!
Chigusa: Next, here’s how you master listening.
Peter: Listeners... this is one of the EASIEST skills to master.
Chigusa: Yeah, all you have to do is ...listen!
Peter: So, since the Dialogue is a line by line breakdown of the conversation...
Chigusa: ...you can listen to each line separately, as much as you want.
Peter: Just click on the audio icon to listen again and again...
Chigusa: ..and review the script. Read along so that you can pick apart every word.
Peter: That way, you master listening...
Chigusa: ...and never miss a word.
Peter: Next. Here’s how you can practice reading with the Dialogue.
Chigusa: This is another easy skill.
Peter: As you listen to the conversation, just read along with the lesson script...
Chigusa: ...that’s inside the lesson dialogue. If you don’t know a word...
Peter: Check the translations. They’re right there in the dialogue.
Chigusa: You can even read with the romanized script to help you sound out the words.
Peter: So, speaking, listening, reading... and finally, listeners...
Chigusa: Here’s how you can practice writing.
Peter: Now...This advice is not something you’ll hear often because... it’s so simple.
Chigusa: It’s so simple that most people don’t even think of doing it.
Peter: Exactly, Chigusa. Here it is. Copy out the dialogue by hand into a notebook.
Chigusa: So literally just grab a pen and paper and copy it down?
Peter: That’s it. I’m applying this tactic to my French learning. I also did this with Japanese. I’d write out whole passages out of my textbook. In fact, I used this tactic so often, it also improved my reading!
Chigusa: ...Ah, because you had to read and understand it first before you’d write it down?
Peter: Exactly. Okay, listeners, the final tip is, whether you’re practicing speaking, reading...
Chigusa: ....Listening, or writing... use the Dialogue to review again and again. Repeat the same phrase 10 times.
Peter: Listen to 10 lines 10 times. Read the dialogue twice. Write it out twice.
Chigusa: Because the more you do it, the faster you’ll improve.
Peter: If you’re a Premium or a Premium PLUS user, you already have access.
Chigusa: You can find the Dialogue Study Tool in every lesson.
Peter: Just click on the Dialogue tab or scroll down.
Chigusa: But if you want to get access to this feature and…

Hi Debra Pond,


Thank you for taking your time to leave us a comment and share your feedback.

You are right, in some of the first podcasts, we didn't provide literal translations. We have learned a lot since then and now we try to deliver better lessons and learning materials.

Feel free to leave questions directly on the lesson pages, whenever you have doubts, we'll be glad to help.


Sincerely,

Ofelia

Hello - I have purchased Premium Plus and for the last four or five weeks been in the intermediate learning sessions. My teacher, Valentina has been wonderful. She is responsive and has given me extra tools and hints to assist in my speaking....wonderful to have her as my teacher. I am writing to comment on one criticism that I have. As advised in "How to Perfect You Italian Speaking, Reading and Writing and Listening with1 Tool", I do take the lessons and write them in a notebook and try to identify each word in English. In Intermediate Lesson #6 - How did you like that Italian Opera? I have found, to me some very blatant inconsistencies in translating the written Italian from Italian to English 😳. If I am mistaken please provide feed back. I will let you figure out the three or four mistranslations. I am bringing this to your attention because it is very confusing when you truly are trying to break down the language as used and the voice of the speaker, the writing in Italian and the dialogue in English. I would suggest you go back and rework this lesson to provide more purity to the translations and less confusion to the student. Thank you for taking my suggestion and accepting my feedback. Sincerely, D. Pond. P.S. If you want me to write further and specifically point out the inconsistencies just let me know.👍❤️️
