Hope everyone had a good weekend!
It was warm and sunny here in Bologna but the forecast is for cooler, wetter weather over the next ten days.
So perfect for studying Italian.

In Italian, you’ll often hear adjective/noun combinations such as ‘a Ferrari red’.
So if you go around saying ‘a red Ferrari’, as you would in English, you’ll stand out like a sore thumb.
Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as just reversing the order of adjective and noun…

Right, what else do I have for you today?
Of course – a new ‘Book Of The Week’ offer!
This week’s half-price e-book is an easy reader that we published six months back: Un viaggio nel tempo (A Trip Back In Time).
Here’s the back cover blurb:
Antonino is newly-retired and is finding that, now he has as much leisure time as he could desire, his days pass rather too slowly. Depression threatens.
But, with the help of his adult sons, he discovers the Internet and its potential for tracing friends from his youth and so making good one of his bitterest regrets…
Give your Italian a boost this week by reading/listening to Un viaggio nel tempo, while saving 50% on the usual easy reader price (offer ends Sunday…)
