Thanks to everyone for your patience during Autumn/Fall Sale week, which is now over.
Today it’s back to normal here at OnlineItalianClub.com HQ – that is to say, another Dante canto, given that Dante and Virgil still have a good bit of hell to see.
But before that, a quick ‘Ciao’ to Liz and Ennis who dropped by the school last week. It’s always nice to chat with club members who are visiting Bologna.
‘Ciao’ also to Marci, who I just met this morning.
I also thought I’d briefly mention what we’ve got planned for the period between now and Christmas.
So next week, we’ll be publishing the first in a trilogy of easy-reader ‘historical detective thrillers’, set in Italy at the time of the Borgias. More about that on Friday. The second and third in the series will come out in successive weeks, probably.
Which brings us more or less up to November. And that month is when we do our ‘Free Trial Lesson’ offer – your chance to try a FREE 30-minute one-to-one via Skype with one of our team of online teachers, assuming you haven’t previously done so.
Later in November there will be two more ebook launches – both good stories, both high level. One’s about a prostitute who wants to change career, while the other’s set during the famous Palio di Siena (an urban horse race.) You’ll like them both, I’m sure!
Then, in December, we’ll have the year’s final ‘ebook easy reader’, this one a sentimental Christmas tale, from the writer of the wildly popular ‘Dante, gatto vagante‘ (club members are cat people, it seems.)
And that brings us up to Christmas, and the January Sale.
For now, though, let’s enjoy the calm – while it lasts!
OK, so here’s the promised and long-awaited Dante extract – Canto XXVII.
If you haven’t been following, the earlier ones are on our Literature page.
A mercoledì, allora.
