This fun video teaches you some basic hand gestures to complement your Italian language learning.

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 so “fai attento” – pay attention – and learn a few with this video from Nada’s Italy.

This is 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.
