Over the course of 2019 6 million Americans travelled to Italy, that is a tenth of the entire population of Italy itself!

We will be covering basic phrases at the airport, hotel, restaurant, retail store, emergency room, pharmacy, beach and all details about coffee and pizza that only Italians know. No previous knowledge of Italian necessary, however you are very welcome if you already know some Italian and want to strenghten your travel-related vocabulary.

We are excited to offer a 4-week “Italian for travelers” program, with a session focused on the entire family, so you can bring your kids (8 years old and above) with you:

The program runs July 12th - Aug 2nd and Aug 9th - Aug 30th.

E' possibile vedere Eurovision in Italiano, importante e' selezionare l'opzione "Diretta LIS", che non e' bloccata dagli Stati Uniti (quindi ha il riquadro con interpretazione dei segni).
La principale differenza da Sanremo e' che una serata dura solo 4 ore invece di 6! Da mezzogiorno alle 16.

Con una VPN si puo' vedere anche la versione normale, la versione LIS funziona anche senza VPN.

In Italy, when you say “Il Festival”, it only means “Festival di Sanremo”, the most popular song contest in Italy. The winner of the Festival is going to represent Italy to Eurovision.

It is a great opportunity to expose the kids to the Italian language and culture: whether you like it or not, Sanremo is iconic!

The show streams on RAI 1 from today February 6th to February 10th from 12pm to 4:30pm Pacific Standard Time at:

RAI 1 realtime streaming

Moreover, RAI posts additional content, like recordings of previous nights, at:

Page about the Festival of Sanremo on Raiplay

Just for Sanremo the Italian television removes geographical restrictions, so you do not need a VPN.

You can watch it on a TV or smartphone by installing the “Raiplay” app, opening a browser (for example Amazon Silk on Firestick), or by streaming it on your laptop and casting the tab to the TV.
If you own a Chromecast, the easiest option is to install the Raiplay app on your phone and then “cast” it to the Chromecast to watch it on a TV.

Buon ascolto!
