Buon Natale. Here’s your present!
Yes, I know it’s not Christmas, but Natale is the topic of today’s elementary Italian listening comprehension exercise, which you can try free, here.
View all of the free Italian listening comprehension exercises in our current series on the elementary Italian exercises page.
Or check out the other levels for something more challenging! Starting from here.
OnlineItalianClub.com members from around the world email me with questions or comments.
The email address is at the bottom of each page on our site.
Here’s a selection of comments/questions from the last 24 hours or so:
Bryan wrote in Italian, full of enthusiasm for our club!
Sono Bryan, e sono studiare Italiano! Vorrei Lei ringrazia per le lezione online!! Sono perfetti perche posso studiare al lavoro e in casa. Anche, le lezioni sono appropriate per mio livello.
Gerald, one of our most loyal customers, wrote to thank me for emailing his latest ebook purchase.
Now I need to find the time to read and learn the material-but it will be fun!
Time is always the enemy, isn’t it? I wrote back suggesting
Start with the easy stuff, listening to the stories at least once and following the text with your finger.
That’s a minimal committment, and quick to do, but it’ll get your brain working the right way, and you’ll get through the material in no time at all.
You can always go back and listen again when you have more time, and/or spend more time on the text, exercises, glossaries, etc.
Still on the topic of e-books, Parvati asked:
I am interested in buying the Italian book level A2 (then maybe A1). Is it possible to receive it by email? because I am in Australia at the moment and just want to have the pdf.
That’s exactly what you get, Parvati. An email, with .pdf attachment. We don’t offer paper books or plastic DVDs, as many of our clients are also in Australia, or the US.
Another source of feedback is the comments people leave when they unsubscribe from our mailing list…
(If you’re fed up with hearing from me, there’s an unsubscribe link in every email – usually at the bottom of the page.)
You get the chance to leave a reason for unsubscribing, as Giulio kindly did:
It was not the type of lessons I had in mind…………..too much English used in explaining the lessons.
All that said, e-mailing me, while very welcome, is a very private form of communication…
And now we have our shiny, new forums, there’s no reason not to communicate in such a way that everyone can read, appreciate and maybe respond to your ideas.
I’ve started a new ‘feedback’ topic (in the ‘English’ forum, sorry Giulio).
