“La mia macchina si è fermata!”
Fortunately I’ve never had to phone for help from the side of the ‘autostrada’ because my car radiatior has overheated.
But I’ve had enough conversations with car mechanics to attest to the authenticity of our second ‘Italian Conversation’. The intern voicing the mechanic in today’s dialogue sounds JUST LIKE one!
Unfortunately he sounded just the same way when he was buying dollars at the Bureau de Change in Wednesday’s conversation, Cambiare i soldi. Perhaps he’s a car mechanic who likes to travel…
Anyway, as I mentioned on Wednesday, this is a new series of recorded Italian dialogues with transcripts. There’ll be sixty of them in total, so I’ve created a special page to ‘house’ them.
Find it by clicking on the Listening in our main menu. Near the top of the page, you’ll see:
Visit our NEW Italian Conversations page.
There’s a brief introduction to the series, then the numbers and titles of the dialogues published so far.
Listen to today’s car mechanic dialogue.
Coming on Monday!
Hold the press, as they say. On Monday we’ll have a new Italian easy reader for you.
It’s called ‘Alta moda, alto pericolo‘ (you do the translation…) and is a short thriller set at a fashion show in Milan.
Due to a misunderstanding between writer and editor, there are just six chapters (with a glossary and exercise for each), instead of the usual eight.
Of course, there’s the full audio available for you to listen to online. And a free sample chapter, so you can evaluate if the level and content are appropriate for your stage of learning Italian BEFORE you buy.
So that’s Monday. Watch out for the special launch price, which will be good for the first week only…
Buon fine settimana, allora!
