Will there be a spoken component for Italian soon?

I just started the Italian section. I can read it a bit and understand when spoken to, but my accent has always been attrociously embarassing. This has kept me from trying to speak it. I would like the chance to practice it here.

Italian accent of Duolingo is terrible! (I'm a native italian speaker. I heard the speaker of the italian section and... I felt sick!). However, it does not exist a real italian accent, it changes according to cities. For example, I live in north of Italy, and my accent is very different than a person from south of Italy. So, if you have troubles with pronunciation of words, you also ask!
