This time next week is Christmas Day.
Now, how do you say that in Italian, I wonder?
Coincidentally, today’s ‘tided up’ page from the club’s vocabulary section covers Festività [Festivals and Holidays].
It’s basically just a list of the names of the main holidays, plus some associated words like Christmas tree and Easter egg.
But don’t miss the link to the FOURTEEN FREE LISTENINGS, one for each of the holidays.
You get to listen with or without the transcript, up to you.
Personally I’d do the listening WITH the transcript first, then the second time around just look at the text without the audio, before finally doing the audio without the text.
Here’s that link again. You’ll find the link to the listenings (on one of my undeveloped websites…) at the bottom of the page.
Oh, and just in case all of that is not enough to keep you going until Wednesday, here’s another ‘tidied up’ vocabulary page.
It has what looks like a random list of nouns, at best vaguely associated with ferie / holidays.
Make of it what you will…
