Before I forget, ‘Happy Independence Day’ to all club members in or from the USA!
And for those of you north of the border, a belated ‘Happy Canada Day’ for last Friday.
I think I’m a bit late for Australia day (Jan. 26th) so we’ll skip that.

So today, I’m continuing to push the free listening materials on our new site learnitalian4free.com.
As I’ve already told you, it’s still in its embryonic stage, but there are some good audios with transcripts, so no reason why you shouldn’t take advantage already.

Listen while following the transcript. Then take some time to read it again slowly, without the audio. Finally, test your understanding by listening without the transcript.
And then? On to the next one!

Poi, I should mention this week’s ‘Book Of The Week‘ offer. That’s a half-price deal on an easy reader e-book that we published six months ago and which you may not therefore have seen.
‘Segreti e polpette‘ (‘Secrets And Meatballs’) is for students at intermediate/upper-intermediate level.
Meet the Agnolottis: father, mother, son and daughter, who together run “Da Ettore”, a trattoria in a small Italian town. The restaurant has been in the family for generations, and everyone pulls together to make it a success! But when the chance comes to win an important gastronomic award, the pressure starts to mount…
