It’s not often that I get to write something like ‘Haunted House’ in the subject line of an e-mail going to over five thousand people, but hey, I couldn’t resist!
First though, today’s free Italian lesson, which is on the subjunctive past, a scary topic in itself.
You might, for example, want to go over the subjunctive present one more time before moving on to the past.
Here are those links again:
OK, I’ve waited long enough…
Scared you, huh?
This week’s Book Of The Week is ‘La casa dei fantasmi‘ (The Haunted House), and it’s on offer at just 50% of the usual price.
Leonard was kind enough to write an enthusiastic review, from which I quote just a few lines:
I bought this book yesterday. This morning I started to read it and could not put it down till I finished reading the last chapter. Not a long book, admittedly; but a compelling “read” that should reinforce the Italian that one already knows. It also introduces the reader to maybe unknown material, such as sentence structures, colloquial expressions and vocabulary. Reading books of this calibre is the best way to learn, and more importantly, to remember vocabulary, and to get used to the natural flow of a language.
Thanks Leonard. Couldn’t agree more, which is why we publish them.
For those of you who haven’t taken a look yet, here’s the link to the free sample chapter (.pdf).
Remember, this week only La casa dei fantasmi is just €4.99.
