Tip 4: Think in Italian!
Sometimes the little things make the difference. You may think it strange, but thinking in different language is a good exercise.
When you are alone, try to think in Italian – what are your plans for the day, what would you like to do, etc. – and you will see that this small exercise will help you a lot, even just to revise those structures, like simple present, reflexive verbs, modal verbs and prepositions, or past tense if you do it at the end of the day.
