Thanks to Sieglind, Linda, Rosalind and Anthony, who all wrote pointing out an error in Wednesday’s Sentences Gapfill exercise, which I have now fixed.
The Swedish has stalled since Tuesday as I’ve been working on other (less interesting) things. But I’m determined to finish the book over the weekend, so catch up with my progress or lack thereof on Monday.
For now, two more free Italian exercises from our ‘tidy up’ pile, and something related…
The first link takes to you a beginner-level exercise on dates. It’s worth a look if you haven’t done those yet, as well as being useful revision for everyone else.
Poi, we have a matching exercise – ‘chocolate egg’ goes with ‘Easter’, that sort of thing. It’s a little harder than it sounds…
Which, in turn, reminded me that over on one of our ‘developmental’ sites, I posted some nice listenings on Italian ‘feste’.
Whatever your level, listening to these and checking your understanding with the transcript, would be very appropriate in this festive time of year!
They’re in order, through the calendar year, so start at the beginning.
That’s the weekend sorted!
The new ‘bundles’ of easy readers over at easyreaders.org have been selling well!
The three-for-two format is popular, for obvious reasons.
And it seems people have been following my suggestion to start with the level below their actual one, then to do the level they think they’re currently at, before pushing forward to the next level up.
The idea is to build confidence and skills which will have a long-lasting positive effect on your learning.
The absolute best-seller, however, has been the ‘Eighteen Italian Easy Readers – HALF PRICE!‘ bundle, which is intended to be a longer-term ‘staircase to reading and listening’ in Italian.
So, many thanks to everyone who has already supported us with their purchase.
But of course, we hope that you actually make use of the material to improve your Italian.
A minimal approach would be to aim to complete one reader a week, say three a month, and to move up to the next level after a month.
With six ‘level bands’ in the ‘Eighteen Italian Easy Readers – HALF PRICE!‘ bundle, that should get you a significant improvement in your comprehension skils and overall level by the summer of 2017!
Well, that’s the theory, anyway. Let us know how well it’s working by leaving a review of the ebook or ‘bundle’ you bought. This page tellls you how.
If you don’t know what to write, you could start with the basics – did your ebooks arrive promptly? Was I helpful? Did the payment system work as advertised? Would you recommend this to others?
Oh, and by the way?
If you get stuck, don’t know what to do next, have a problem, or just fancy writing down your theories about what works and what doesn’t, do feel free to email me.
Replying to anything you get from me will work, or seek out the email address at the bottom of every page on our site(s).
I like to hear from club members, and will answer questions or offer help if I am able…
