Remember your first day of school?
I have to confess that I don’t, or at least only vaguely.
But I vividly remember taking my kids for THEIR first day at (Italian) elementary school. The anxious parents all crowded into the classroom, the kids with their heavy new school bags rushing to get a seat near someone they knew, the noise level (though more subdued than usual…)
If you’ve been following our Italian Conversations series, you’ll have heard our hero search for an Italian language school, book his course, find out about accommodation, and arrive at his ‘homestay’.
We hope he slept well because today’s the first day of school!
But no need to worry – this isn’t first grade. He won’t be forced to sit next to some rough kid he’s never met before who picks things from his nose and flicks them at the other members of the class.
In fact, everyone’s going to be very friendly. Really!
And anyway, it’s only four hours…

I’ll have another Italian Conversation for you on Friday but in the meantime…
Book Of The Day OFFER!
We’re not publishing any new Italian easy readers this week (you’d have heard about it by now.)
Il sorpasso is part of our ‘Book of the Film’ series, one of the early ones but actually one of my favorites.
We first published it way, way back at the beginning of the year sometime, but it didn’t sell many copies, which is a shame because it’s actually very good.
If you’re one of the vast majority of OnlineItalianClub.com members that didn’t buy this the first time around, well here’s another chance to get your hands on a really great piece of original study material!
But why take my word for it when you can download your free sample chapter (.pdf)?
The link is for the first chapter of the book, so you can get an idea of the level and whether the story interests you.
There’s also a link to the audio for the WHOLE BOOK, not just the sample chapter, which is available to listen to free online.
Here’s the important part: for the rest of this week Il sorpasso is on offer at just €4.99, instead of the usual easy reader price of €9.99.
Done that? Now follow these links to also check out the other volumes in our ‘Book of the Film’ series:
