Today Try These Three Free Italian Exercises
So I began with a painful bit of alliteration. But hey, it’s not easy coming up with 156 article titles each year.

Black Friday? 4 FREE Italian exercises to try!

Error from Monday, more exercises, parallel text reminder!
First of all, thanks to Maria from Canada and Sieglind from Australia who reported mistakes in the final exercise I linked to on Monday. I’ve now fixed them, but I’d mention that, as I publish on this site three times a week (which is time-consuming), help of this type is invaluable. I simply don’t have […]
