Buongiorno a tutti!
But first, the lesson. This week we begin the intermediate topics, and I’ve chosen to start with the Italian passive form.
In many respects the Italian passive is similar to structures in English, but there is a confusing degree of choice… Our lesson covers three different ways to express passive meanings in Italian.

After the successful launch of last week’s Un idagine molto privata, we’re back to flagging up e-books we published in the past that you might not be aware of.
This week’s Book Of The Week is one from our ‘Classic Italian Movie’ series, I soliti ignoti.
Personally, I’m not really into comedies, but when we published this ‘easy reader’ version back in September, I sat my family down with the DVD and it was much more enjoyable than I expected. Even the kids enjoyed it!
Our e-book is a good way into the film. It gave me an idea of what to expect and left me feeling more in control than I usually do with Italian films…
As regards the level, we put it as B1 (Intermediate) but you should take a look at the free sample chapter (.pdf) to get an idea if the material is right for you.
If you like the sample, this week you can get the full version of ‘I soliti ignoti‘ for just €4.99!
And while I’m on the topic of easy reader versions of classic Italian movies, I soliti ignoti is not the only one available in our online shop.
