This is going to be a record-breakingly short article, as with all the Black Friday promotions going on, I don’t expect anyone to read it.
1. Have you listened to yesterday’s FREE Easy Italian News, yet?

2. Message from Lucia, our teaching manager
This part is only for those of you who booked a free trial lesson recently.
Lucia, our teaching manager, has got ants in her pants that only about a third of those who booked a free lesson have actually taken it so far.
I told her, chill babe, it’s Thanksgiving, and November. They’ll get around to it!
But what if you haven’t forgotten? Suppose you’re just too anxious to respond to Lucia’s pleas?
Then think, what’s the worst that can happen?
Skype doesn’t work… You freeze up and can’t say a word… The teacher is mean to you… In short, it’ll be embarassing… Humiliation! O.M.G.
Probably it’ll go OK, though.
Nothing unsurvivable will occur.
You might even ENJOY it.
There – consider yourself reminded.
3. Keep your credit cards locked safely in a drawer today
Black Friday or no, personally, I don’t plan to buy anything today, except beer and wine from our local supermarket.
And I’ll be paying cash.
My wife wanted to buy a new smartphone that she’d seen on Facebook or somewhere, which was going to be crashingly good value!!!
So I told her about an article I’d read (in Swedish), about how prices are put up in the period before an offer so that they can then be reduced dramatically, to tempt people to buy something they wouldn’t otherwise have purchased.
That’s our household budget safe for another few weeks, at least until Christmas…
But if you really must spend something, why not buy our half-price, £3.99 ebook?
I stress, this is NOT a Black Friday offer.
But that way, you could spend the rest of the day quietly studying and so easily ignore whatever other temptations invade your inbox and social media feeds.
Here are the details again:
‘I soliti ignoti‘ is Mario Monicelli’s 1958 classic comedy, retold for learners of Italian by our own award-winning scriptwriter cum Italian teacher, Giovanni Galavotti.
And yipee! Until Sunday night, ‘I soliti ignoti‘ is half-price, so just £3.99, rather than the usual £7.99!
