Hope you had a pleasant weekend?
We were in Rimini and got out on the boat for the first time this year.
And I had my first swim, which was cooling. Though I was mostly scraping mussels and barnacles from the hull.
Anyway, here we are again and, as promised, it’s time for the SUMMER SALE!
What follows is mostly the same email I sent out on July 2nd last year – but it worked well then and, hey, it’s HOT in Bologna – we’re learning to conserve our energy, and stay out of the sun.
Save 20% on everything in our online shop – online Italian lessons with a club teacher, self-study workbooks, Italian easy readers (including our ‘Day in the life of..‘ series and our Classic Italian Movies series), and of course Italian-English parallel texts, of which we have 21, at different levels from near-beginner to strong-intermediate.
The coupon code you need to get your discount is:
A word to the wise: if you’re interested in ebooks, make sure to download (and OPEN) the free sample chapter .pdf first.
That way, you can check if an ebook will display properly on your iPad, Mac, Kindle, etc. BEFORE you buy the full version, so saving yourself a lot of stress.
I don’t use any of those infernal devices, and while I am unfailingly helpful and polite in giving technical support, I am all out of miracles when it comes to Apple products or ebook-readers like the Kindle.
‘Try it before you buy it!’
It’s easy (and fun!)
If you look at our catalog page, you’ll find links to all of our titles along with links to the sample chapters that you can click to view or download right there and then, with no searching around.
Use the catalog page to ‘scroll’ through the levels, checking sample chapters until you find texts that challenge you but that aren’t TOO difficult.
And if you’re selecting easy readers, don’t forget to listen to the audio, too.
The audio is available free online. To see if it’s suitable for your level (i.e. not too fast), try it first!
The link to the audio is usually at the top of Chapter 1.
So, make your picks from the catalog page, checking sample chapters as you go.
And when you’re done, and go to your cart to complete your order?
Don’t forget to use the coupon code!
Every time I do an offer, someone writes in to say they bought some online lessons and/or ebooks but forgot to apply the discount code.
I can give refunds in case of slip-ups, but better to get it right the first time if poss.
So here are what I hope will be simple-to-follow instructions:
First, make your selections from our online shop.
Then visit your shopping cart and copy and paste the coupon code ( 2019-Summer-Sale-20%-Off ) into the box where it says ‘Apply coupon’.
Press the ‘Apply coupon’ button.
Note that the 20% discount is applied to the cart total, not to each indivdual ebook or online lesson package.
Which means that when you’re looking at the shopping cart, the prices of individual items won’t change when you press the ‘Apply Coupon’ button.
Only the total changes, and you won’t see that if it’s off the bottom of your screen.
This confuses me every time, and it’s my shop!
Scroll down to check that the cart total has been discounted BEFORE you proceed to the payment stage.
Any problems, just email me!

Remember, the next offer won’t be until the end of September, so better stock up now!
If you get fed up with hearing about the Summer Sale, you could just stop reading for a week (things will be back to normal next Monday.)
Or, look for the word ‘unsubscribe’ in the footer section of this email and follow the simple instructions.
Here’s that coupon code one more time…
