Even if you’ve never been to Italy, you’ve seen them.
I’m talking about the hand gestures that Italians use to complement their vocal language.
Indeed, sometimes all you’ll get is a hand gesture to get your point across. So “fai attenzione” – pay attention – and learn a few with these videos from Nada’s Italy.
These videos are also a lovely little primer because you get a glimpse of some piazze, cafes, alleyways, and the countryside while the gesture demonstrators give their little lessons.
If you want to take your Italian language learning even further, consider taking an Italian immersion course in Italy.
