I like giving stuff away for free, but sometimes things can get out of hand. So the fewer people that read this all the way through, the better. By far.
Do you get multiple e-mails?
Yeah. So do I. Every time I write something like this, I get about 8 copies.
It’s because I joined each new mailing list I started over the last 5 years or so. And each time I write an article, it gets sent automatically.
So, I’ve decided to “disconnect” all the old lists from OnlineItalianClub.com, so that an article here ONLY goes to the people on the OnlineItalianClub.com list. If you see what I mean. Not the others.
That’ll happen in the next few days. Sundays are good for jobs like that.
Which means that if you’re not on the “official” list, you might not hear from me again. But also that a load of people who maybe aren’t really interested, won’t be bothered.
If you don’t want more e-mails like this, don’t do anything now.
But if they keep coming, it means you’re ON the “official” list. Unsubscribe yourself by clicking the link located at the bottom of every mail sent.
If you do want e-mails like this, it’s complicated to explain how to check which list you’re on (I’m not really sure).
So, also, don’t do anything right now.
But if these fantastic articles no longer arrive joyfully in your in-box, just stop by the website and fill in the form you can’t help but see in the sidebar (right-hand side).
That’ll do the job.
Membership of OnlineItalianClub.com should be unaffected. This is just about stopping multiple e-mails. No one will be stopped from entering our “Members Only” areas.

You didn’t, huh? So it’s true what they teach on those marketing courses!
Well anyway, a week or so ago I ran a promotion for our Italian school in Bologna. It’s now ended, but we were offering a voucher for a week’s free Italian course.
Yes, really free. And no, there is no cost involved.
The idea was to attract new clients who aren’t really sure if learning Italian is going to work for them, show them a great time, and hope they come back and pay for a course in the future, or at least tell their friends what a nice school we run and how much their Italian improved.
We had 180 or so people sign up for their voucher in just a few days, which was a great response. Some of them started right away, so the school’s pretty busy right now, and will likely remain so for a while, which is fun.
But a few people, who I know also to be OnlineItalianClub.com enthusiasts (they’ve bought e-books, Skype lessons and so on), wrote to say they’d missed the offer. That’s a shame. They were up a mountain, or somewhere and had no Internet.
So, just between you and me, it IS still possible to get a voucher for a week’s free course. You just have to know where to click.
By the way..
I promised I wouldn’t hassle you about this, but remember that Lucia’s .pdf e-phase book “L’italiano in viaggio” is still available to download at the special launch price of just €7.50.
The offer runs out on Tuesday, after which it’ll be €9.99.
