CBI To Go 2.01 | Per te è importante viaggiare? – Is travelling important to you?

In this episode of Coffee Break Italian To Go, Francesca asks the question, per te è importante viaggiare? (Is travelling important to you?). You can use the answers of our interviewees to help you answer this question in Italian.

Access the podcast version below in which Mark is back in the studio helping you understand all the responses.

In the first part of the video, watch the interviews without subtitles and try to understand. In the second part of the video, we’ve provided subtitles in Italian at the top of the screen. You can choose to turn on subtitles in English using the Subtitles/CC button.

In this second series of Coffee Break Italian To Go, Francesca is in Stresa on the shores of Lake Maggiore, and in each episode she’ll ask passers-by one question. Of course, that one question will result in many answers, and it’s through these answers that you can practise your Italian and build your vocabulary.

Coffee Break Italian To Go will be published every two weeks here on YouTube, and each Season will be filmed in a different part of the Italian-speaking world. If you’d prefer not to wait for all 10 lessons of Season 2 to be published, you can access downloadable versions of the videos along with audio versions and lesson notes / transcripts in the Coffee Break Academy.

Coffee Break Italian To Go is based on the popular podcast series and online course Coffee Break Italian. For access to the free podcasts, please click here.

  1. Per me, si, è molto importante, perché viaggiando scopriamo posti belli e culture nuove. E anche ci aiuta a stare bene e fa crescere le nostre menti!

  2. Pensavo fosse per me importantissimo viaggiare, perché ho viaggiato tutta la mia vita e così facendo ho conosciuto molto del mondo. Anche è importante viaggiare per fare il mio lavoro, e in tempi normali viaggio costantemente (effettivamente avrei dovuto essere in Italia per quasi tutto l’anno 2020, ma ovviamente questo non è successo). Ma nella pandemia da COVID-19 ho imparato che non è solo importante viaggiare, ma è anche importante stare a casa con le persone le più importanti.

  3. Ciao! Sono Lisa da una città prossima di Philadelphia, PA, USA. Posso viaggiare è importante per me perché desidero praticare la mia lingua italiana. L’ultima volta che ho visitato l’Italia avevo 21 anni nel 2004. Voglio portare mio marito in Italia e presentarlo alla famiglia allargata che ancora vive in Italia.

  4. I think traveling is the fullest form of education, because you are exposed to different places, people, languages, customs, and cultures, and different ways of thinking and doing things. I believe we would all be a lot smarter in the ways we live our own lives, if we had more traveling experiences. (I had the fundamentals and most details right in the below statement, but I got a little help from Google Translate in the final refinements.)

    Credo che viaggiare e la forma migliore per essere istruiti, perche e esposto a posti diversi, le gente, lingue, usanze e culturi, e percio’ modi diversi pensieri and fare cose. Credo che saremmo tutti molto piu’ intelligenti nelle mode abitiamo le vite nostre, se abbiamo avuto piu’ l’esperienze viaggiatore. Grazie, e ciao !
