Just a quickie today.
Here’s the link to the 4th in our series of new Italian listening comprehension exercises:
You can see the previous exercises in the series here.
Or find exercises at other (harder, easier) levels here.
That’s it. Buonagiornata!
Except, of course, that’s not it. There’s always a P.S. Usually trying to sell you something, right?
Well, hah! Not this time.
In fact, this P.S. is for people who have already bought one of our Italian easy readers.
Recently I’ve been buying DVDs for my kids from various Internet stores – Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, and so on.
It’s good for their English, or at least that’s what I tell myself to justify the money I’ve spent.
Then, often, an e-mail arrives to ask me to leave feedback – was the DVD the one I ordered? Did it arrive intact?
Do I rush to the vendor’s website to leave an enthusiastic ‘yes’?
Do I hell.
Unless the service was really lousy, of course.
For example, when I ordered ‘Breaking Bad’ Series 4.
After the cliff-hanger at the end of series 3, the whole family was on the edge of their sofas waiting to discover how Walt avoids being murdered by his drug-distributing associates…
Two days later the package arrived, in time for Saturday night family TV.
Delighted, I phoned the kids to tell them to clear their schedules. We have Series 4!
Indeed we did. Series 4 of ‘Little House on the Prairie’.
Of COURSE I’ll visit your site and leave feedback!
Back to the point, we’ve had hundreds of people buy our easy Italian readers since we started publishing them around a year ago.
But very, very few ‘reviews’.
Is that because you like them?
Or because you don’t?
Or maybe it’s because you couldn’t work out how to leave your comment? Or simply forgot?
Feedback is important to OnlineItalianClub.com because it helps us improve.
Also because it guides other ‘members’ to choose products that will help them learn Italian (and avoid the ones that won’t.)
Leaving a comment/review just takes a few seconds, especially if you’re visiting our site regularly.
OK, put like that, it DOES sound a bit complicated… But we’d love you to try, anyway!
