Buondì. You’ll be aware that we have an online shop, as well as totally-free-to-access websites like OnlineItalianClub.com and EasyItalianNews.com. The shop pays the bills for the free content. It’s a separate site, in part so people don’t get confused, and in part for technical reasons (the software setup varies, for example.) And where there’s a […]

Back to language-learning!
Buondì. Well, we’re all pretty exhausted here at club HQ, after a week of Spring Sale (now concluded). Processing hundreds of orders, which come in day and night from every time zone, is very wearing, especially when we run up against the odd ‘problem customer’. The vast majority of people are very nice, though, and […]

What’s selling like 20%-Off hot cakes in the 2021 Spring Sale?
(This is a modified, mish-mash of two articles published in March 2020, as I’m rather too busy with the Sale to write anything new. Things will be back to normal on Monday!) Buondì. It’s human nature to want what other people have, not in the tenth commandment sense of coveting your neighbours’ goods but, for […]
2021 Spring Sale: Your Lockdown Italian Skills Workout!
(This article was published twelve months ago, in the 2020 Spring Sale, just when we were all locked down for the FIRST time… I’ve updated the coupon code, so it’s valid for this year’s promotion, which began yesterday. Also the sales figures, so you can see what others are buying. Other than that, though, I’ve […]
2021 Spring Sale: Save 20% on Italian Lessons and Ebooks!
(This is basically the article I used this time last year, way back at the beginning of the pandemic. Hence the jokes in questionable taste about temperatures and face masks… Depressing that so little has changed, though, isn’t it?) Buondì. Our Spring Sale starts today, which means you can save £££ by stocking up on […]
Spring Sale Starts Soon! And how to keep languages from ‘leaking’.
Buondì. The 2021 Spring Sale (20% off everything – online lessons and ebooks) starts on Monday! I’ll be promoting the heck out of it all next week. Why? Because we have teachers who need work, ebook writers to invest in, but above all, a legion of regular online students who take lessons with us and […]
Buondì. A handy way of categorizing language-learning activities is to separate things into one of two broad boxes, so ‘input’ (grammar explanations, new vocabulary, help with pronunciation, learning advice) and ‘practice’ (everything else, so class or study activities that focus on one or all of listening, reading, writing and speaking, that is to say development […]
Back in Italy
Buondì. I’m back in Italy. Actually, I never left. Due to the virus, it’s been more than eighteen months since my last trip. But, despite writing these articles about learning Italian (and stuff), I mostly live in a more multi-national, multi-lingual space. I listen to the news highlights each day on Radio Sverige, for example, […]
