  • FUN

    You want to learn the language while having fun and learn about a bunch of other interesting topics


    You are willing to integrate the Italian language into your life and learn the natural way

You will probably not like our membership program if


    Your are a total beginner in Italian (A0, or A1). To find out listen to one of my podcasts, if you understand less than 30% this master program is probably not the best way for you to learn yet


    You are looking for in-depth explanations about the grammar and the structure of the Italian language


    You want to drill verbs and you are looking for specific exercises about how to use the tenses correctly


Improving your language skills with Simone’s Podcasts is fun and it’s fascinating how fast you can see progress. It’s really great way to get better in understanding native speakers talking and to enhance your vocabulary and learn expressions that you will never find in schoolbooks or when learning a language with non-native language teachers.

I’ve found Simone’s podcast on Spotify and decided to listen without knowing that I was going to discover a whole new world in Italian. Simone’s podcast, I think you already know it is good, period. But when I became a member of his membership program, I started to listen again to all the episodes reading the transcription along.
I can say that my Italian had a big improvement after that, and not only my listening skills, but also my reading and understanding. Even my speech has improved after I became a member. But it only helps if you decide to be consistent, of course.
I just have to thank Simone for his work, all his effort to bring his stories and share his adventures with us. I am grateful to be part of this and to be able to encourage Simone to continue his good work in teaching Italian in an easy and simple way.
Thank you, friend.

Thank you so much for your amazing podcast Simone. Listening in my car & reading your transcripts is really helping me recognise, commit to memory & use correctly all the grammar & vocabulary I have been taught over a long period of time that I was struggling to process.

It is exactly what I needed to bring connection & more rapid progress to my continued learning in a fun & enjoyable way. I love your variety of content with my favourite episodes being the ones on language learning, self care & improovement as well as your stories on travel.

Ho scritto in Inglese perchè voglio che il significato è esatto e non è cambiato da traduzione. Grazie di cuore.

Rogor xar?

Me pare chi tutto che tu dice e molto interesante, ormai, actualmente io chiamo questo podcast “il podcast interesante” Ho iniziato a ascoltar Italiano básico in podcast in gennaio fino a agosto, per 8, 10, 12 ore ad giorno. Il tuo Italiano e molto chiaro e la tua voce facile per comprenderé. Ho imparato un sacco di cose italiane, di regioni, sulla vita, i luoghi da visitare, le città, il tempo, etc. Ho finito tutti i tuoi podcast e altre in Italiano.

Ho iniziato a ascoltare portugues podcast perche io dico, “eu non falo portugues, eu intendo”. Ormai ascolto tutto podcast, beginner, intermediario, e avanzati. E davvero molto grazie a te per tutto.

Also since everything that you tackle you do it well and the variety is such that one is kept interested since your podcast is “interesante” remember? You have become a Jedi of Italian teachers, lol.

I wrote this without looking up any words, and I am not writing as i should so I could get some practice but I do work long hours, hence i can listen for hours on end. I spoke English in 2 months, back in ’78, then in ’80 I took a semester of Français, and loved it. But what interested me in languages was a Romanian, and began asking anyone how do you say, How are you mostly and other simple phrases, I am on #56 or so now, and I love to see people ‘s faces when o say, hello thank you, see you later, etc.

Che me gozo escuchandote y después de un brake, he comenzado a escucharte durante todo el dia y voy avanzando rápidamente. A causa de tu correo electrónico y tus preguntas. De nuevo gracias por enseñarnos a aprender a aprender.

Quello che mi piace del programma membership è avere accesso alle trascrizioni degli episodi del podcast.

Ascoltando e leggendo allo stesso tempo si accelera il processo di apprendimento delle lingue. Mi piace anche la varietà di contenuti del podcast.

Mi piace molto il programma membership perché mi aiuta ad ascoltare la lingua a un ritmo normale.

Sono eccitata quando riesco a leggere 2-5 minuti di trascizione e a capire senza usare google translate.

Le trascrizioni sono molto utili per la prima o seconda volta.


I enjoy the personal nature of your podcasts, you have interesting thoughts and ideas about many things. I am challenged and encouraged, and my view of the world is expanded by listening to your podcasts. I am learning how to learn a language and trying things that I would not have before.

There are many things I enjoy about the program.

How can one not enjoy listening to his many travel adventures?

He has a “gusto” for life that is contagious, though I will never “fare l’autostop”.

One of the many ways his program has helped me is that it has made me get used to the spoken Italian language. It has made my ear grown accustomed to the language and can understand it so much more. I can understand so much more when I hear it spoken at a natural speed.

Also, as someone who has learned so many languages and has been a beginner himself, you don’t feel awkward making mistakes. He understands this is part of the learning process, and it is the natural way to learn a new language.

Grazie Simone!

I absolutely love your podcast and look forward to it every week. You’ve accompanied me on many walks and drives, Simone! I’ve watched my Italian comprehension grow with each episode. I’m only writing in English because it’s 6:30 am and I’m rushed. Anyway, thank you so much! Please continue with your awesome and inspiring work!!

I’m not sure how he does it, but Simone is able to come up with really interesting topics very regularly, and the way he speaks sounds entirely natural but I can understand every word. I even forget that I’m listening t something in Italian! This is the Stephen Krashen method exactly as it should be. Thanks Simone.

I’ve been studying Italian (3-6 hours a day) for 6 months and I have now reached the point where I can listen to full length content and understand 90% of it.

The problem is, a lot of podcasts blow through new words and forms of speaking, thus causing me to miss a lot of it. This guy EXPLAINS new words whilst remaining in Italian, so that I don’t have to go look them up or switch to thinking in English at any point.

He speaks at the perfect pace for me and i can feel my comprehension skill level up with every listen. For the record I’d say I’m at about a B2.



BEFORE joining our program


    You struggle to understand native speakers despite all the hours spent learning the language and a 1000+ days strike on Duolingo.


    You are tired of content about pizza, lasagne, torre di Pisa and Colosseo and you want to learn something useful to grow as a person and live a better, happier and more fulfilling life.


    You have a hard time speaking Italian and using it with native speakers.

    You get stuck.

    Words just don’t come out.


    You lack a method and are often influenced by the next language learning guru that shows you how he learned Italian in 2 hours 31 minutes and 25 seconds.

    You are not familiar with language learning principles.


    Is your worst nightmare.

    You see articles and prepositions in your dreams.

    The difference between Imperfetto and Passato Prossimo is still a mistery.

AFTER joining our program


    You are able to understand native speakers, and you realize that what sounded like Chinese before now actually sounds like… Italian 🙂


    You are exposed to interesting and compelling content in Italian. You can now kill two birds with one stone: grow as a person and learn a new language while being comfortably seated on your couch.


    Words finally start to come out automatically, with you not even realizing it.

    Yes, you can speak Italian.


    You have a clear study-plan.

    A routine to follow that brings structure to your learning and to your life.

    No more time lost planning: you know WHEN to learn WHAT and HOW to do it.


    Thanks to the content and the study-plan delivered with the program, you surprise yourself by picking up grammar from context and improving overtime.

    Now you can sleep at night: no prepositions hunting you anymore.


Every week, together with a new podcast, you’ll get access to a special PDF with the transcript of the episode.

Simone, what do I need the trascript for?

Having the transcript will boost your understanding because you’ll be connecting the written language to the spoken one. This will allow you to understand even parts of the speech that you were not able to understand before.

Part of the input (Simone speaking, in most of the cases) that was not comprehensible before, after reading the transcript will suddenly become crystal clear. That’s the most effective way for your brain to learn a language.

Every transcript comes with a special section where new words are explained in Italian, in English and in German.

Simone, what do I need this for?

Here I decided to go the extra mile. Let me explain you.

Not only you’ll get the transcript, but at the end of every single transcript, there will be a table with the explanation of the most difficult words. These words will be explained in Italian (using synonyms or a short clarification) and in English (translation in context).

No need to say that this will increase your understanding even more, boosting in turn your motivation to keep on learning the language.

Every transcript contains an extra set of secret missions for you to reinforce what you learn and make it stick to your long-term memory.

Simone, what exactly is this?

The secret missions are a set of BONUS exercises (usually two per episode) that will make sure that you further engage yourself with your study material (the transcript).

Got it! But why is this so important?

Well… Use it or lose it, as they say.

Engaging yourself with the language is an essential part of the learning process. This set of exercises will make sure that you’ll come back to the trascript a second or a third time, which is exactly what will make the material stick and commit all the new words and sentences to your long-term memory.

You’ll get access to a specific study plan with clear explanation about how to take the most out of every episode of podcast to maximize your learning efficency.

This sounds awesome Simone, but can you be more precise?

So, now you got the trascript of the podcast, the explanation of the new words and a set of secret missions to further help your long-term memory to remember all this stuff.

Now the question is: when to do what?

When to plan what activities?

Should you listen to the podcast while reading the transcript?

Or better listen to it before and read the transcript afterwards?

Maybe a combination of both?

The STUDY PLAN is your ultimate tool to avoid wondering how to plan your days and when to use what material. You’ll get access to a clear and easy to follow study routine.

The plan is available in both Italian and English.

Isn’t that awesome? 🙂

You’ll get access to our private live events on zoom.

Simone, what’s happening during these live events?

Good question, my friend 🙂

ONE event per month is going to be with me. We’ll have a cozy chat while drinking coffee, and you’ll have the opportunity to ask me anything and interact with other listeners from all over the world.

A SECOND event is going to be with Elisa, my favorite (and very experienced) Italian teacher, who is going to tackle some interesting grammar topics each month. Don’t miss it if you want to polish your grammar skills!

You’ll get access to the archive of the PREMIUM material of  every single episode the podcast, starting from episode 1

Simone, what does this material include?

This means that no matter when you subscribe to the membership program, you can always access the old transcriptions with the explanations of the new words and the missioni segrete of every single episode.

Ready to rock? 😉

You’ll get access to a lot of BONUS material

Simone, what kind of bonus material?

Extra interviews (in video or audio format).

Recordings of our LIVE sessions about Italian grammar.

Backstage interviews with other members of my team.

Additional transcript and/or subtitles for the above-mentioned interviews.


Read this first.

This is not your usual Italian course.

The program has led multiple people to learn not only Italian but also to start learning Portuguese, Spanish and French – all languages from the same family.

Once you get the method, and you stick to it with one language, the rest is easy.

The membership program is highly addictive and makes you want to learn and grow.

Please don’t join unless you are ready to revolutionize your learning process, be happier and improve your life.
