At first I was a bit skeptical to do listening exercises, as I was used to doing such exercises at school. But Film al Taglio is different. I love the fact that it uses movie dialogues to do it. So I'm getting used to real spoken Italian and it's actually a lot of fun. What helped me most was the breakdown of sounds and the different speeds of the dialogues. I hoped to work on my listening skills, but I learned so much more and I now have even some Italian movies to put on my watch list. If there'll ever be a sequel, I'd buy it immediately :-)
I'm learning Italian and I'm making much more progress with Film al Taglio. You can listen to dialogues, idioms and useful expressions in a much more didactic way. Since I am studying alone this method is easier and helps me a lot. If you love movies it's a great resource. I can warmly recommend it for Spanish-speakers.

Frequently asked questions
Which movies are the main dialogues taken from?
From movies of Italian production ranging from the 70s to the present day. There is comedy, drama, action, horror. A good immersion in Italian culture. Click here to find out the included movies.
What is the difference between doing such exercises on my own and with the package?
The difference is that I am giving you feedback and explanations about things that might be difficult to catch.
For this reason in the pdf you will find explanations about sounds, pronunciations and accents used by actors and explanations of words and expressions.
What is the difference between Film al Taglio and the 14 Day Italian Movie Listening Challenge?
Film al Taglio includes an e-book with information and trivia about the movies, explanations
of the context of the scenes from which the dialogues are taken, analysis of the sounds, accents and pronunciations you hear in the dialogues, explanation of some expressions, and it offers you additional exercises to repeat expressions in other contexts. Film al Taglio includes 3 different audios (slow and fast version, original scene). You'll receive all the material immediately after your purchase. In a nutshell, Film al Taglio goes down deeper than the 14 Day Italian Movie Listening Challenge.
14 Day Italian Movie Listening Challenge is a email course that does NOT include any e-books and further analysis. You'll simply receive a dialogue every day for 14 days via e-mail (2 different audios: original scene + slow version) together with a worksheet and the transcription and explanation of some expressions.
Will the package be sent to my home address?
No, this is a digital download package.
Are there any English translations included?
No there aren't. It's not because I want to annoy you, it's just because you should get familiar with not constantly translating in your mother tongue.
When you read a translation your brain will start to make bidirectional associations, which is not effective when you are seriously learning a language. You can use, of course, a bilingual dictionary if there's any need.
How long does it take me?
It depends on you. You could of course finish the whole package in one day, but I don't recommend that. I suggest you work with the package regularly in short sessions for at least 2 weeks. It's more effective. Your brain will be grateful. Film al Taglio is an active, deep learning resource.
Why this title?
Have you ever heard of pizza al taglio? It's a variety of pizza. It's rectangular-shaped, sold by weight and consumed in slices. The dialogues represent the slices cut from an entire movie.
Can I get a refund?
If for any reason you are not satisfied, write me an e-mail within 24 hours of your purchase and you will get your money back.
