I’m late again!
Don’t ask why – it’s too painful.
But in a word, taxes.
Having spent most of the morning getting my knickers in a twist, I’m now in a rush.
There are lessons to plan, homework to mark, and I was rather hoping to do my Swedish homework before tomorrow morning’s online lesson.
So I’ll keep this short.
Click here to take a look.
You’ll see the page itself is not very interesting. There are no exercises to do, and there’s not even a picture of a delicious cake!
We could do better, don’t you think?
If you’re learning Italian and also like baking, why not send me your ‘ricetta per una torta Italiana’, and maybe a photo??
I’ll then add your text and photo to the boring page, which will be a huge improvement!
N.B. Your recipe doesn’t have to be original in concept. A chocolate cake is a chocolate cake, after all.
But it does have to be typed out ‘in your own words’, rather than copied and pasted from someone else’s website, which would be naughty…
Ditto with the photo – it should be your own. But please do send a mouth-watering image to make me drool.
If you don’t have a camera handy, no worries. Just ask a passing teenager with a smartphone to take a few snaps (you could bribe them with a slice of cake).
Email your recipe and photo to the address at the bottom of every page on the club website, or just reply to any article you get from me.
And the prize?
What about your choice of a free ebook or online lesson from our new shop, for each ‘original’ Italian language recipe/photo that I publish?
P.S. Don’t agonise about making mistakes in your writing.
Life’s too short.
And to err is human, to forgive divine, innit?
I’ll get my wife, or one of the kids, to look over your masterpiece before publishing it.
