Here we go with the last onlineitalianclub.com email of 2016! I was planning to email each day during this sale period. But here at the clubhouse, the primary topic of conversation is still influenza. So frankly, I don’t have the energy. I think we could all do with a break, don’t you? A couple of […]

January Sale 2017 Starts Today!
Buondì. I’m back home after our Christmas holiday on the Adriatica coast. Unfortunately, colds and flu kept us in the house almost the whole time. If Rimini got painted red during our visit, we weren’t helping. It’s nice to be home, though with a house full of sick kids sneezing and blowing their noses, I’d […]
What is the POINT of this email from OnlineItalianClub.com?
Thanks to the various people who wrote in on Friday with their gut reactions to my suggestion about orientating people to the mass of materials on our site. Sorry, I don’t have all your names handy, as I’ve been ill, but I think I did manage to reply to each of you personally. Everyone was […]
Just these two free Italian exercises? What a scam!
Thanks to Elsbeth, a UK Italian teacher and talented proof-reader, who has found yet another glitch in one of Monday’s exercises, now corrected. Many thanks also to Steve, who wrote to me about a typo that even Elsbeth hadn’t spotted! Goes to show, however many times you get something checked, there are always more mistakes […]

Try as I might, I couldn’t think of a unifying theme for this. So, let’s just do the easiest stuff first, OK? #1 on the list is to thank Steve, Sieglind and Harold, all of whom spotted glitches with Monday’s exercises. If you want to have another look at them, now they are ‘new and […]

Two free grammar exercises to try (and some vocabulary too!)
Buondì. The clubhouse move was completed smoothly. If any club members run websites and want the name of our (expensive but usually efficient) hosting company, drop me a line and I’ll be happy to pass on their details. Also in miscellaneous this morning, thanks to Steve who pointed out a mistake in the ‘Alex’s Day’ […]
Two gapfills (and possible downtime at the clubhouse)
Buondì. Today onlineitalianclub.com is moving house, and I’m sure you know what kind of chaos can result from that! While I think of our clubhouse as being a building, with an address and a layout, of course it isn’t. Despite having been laboriously hand-built by our team, brick by brick, beam by beam, tile by […]
Four Free Italian Vocabulary Exercises To Try
I’m in a rush today. A rare morning meeting has me already shaved, showered and shampooed, all ready to jump onto my motorbike and head into the mean city. Just as soon as I’ve completed Monday’s ‘must do’ onlineitalianclub.com post. So, today I have four free Italian vocabulary exercises for you to try. Three of […]

Thanks to Sieglind, Linda, Rosalind and Anthony, who all wrote pointing out an error in Wednesday’s Sentences Gapfill exercise, which I have now fixed. The Swedish has stalled since Tuesday as I’ve been working on other (less interesting) things. But I’m determined to finish the book over the weekend, so catch up with my progress […]
