A break from Italian pronunciation today, as I have several classes to plan for and to teach, which means that time is of the essence.
This week we publish a new ‘easy Italian reader’ ebook – it’s called ‘Giallo a Capodanno‘ (‘Mystery at New Year’), the level is upper-intermediate/advanced, and for the first seven days it’ll cost just £5.99!
It’s New Year 1970 and Martina’s all dressed up for the party, determined to enjoy it! But her roommate, Alida is more cynical:
“Ascolta: siamo bloccati dalla neve in un collegio in cui viviamo tutto l’anno. Dei duecento alunni che frequentano la scuola, solo sette (sette, porca miseria!) hanno dei genitori che non li vogliono tra i piedi nemmeno durante le feste. E noi siamo tra questi sette. Quindi puoi anche vestirti come Marilyn Monroe… ma rimani una disgraziata!”
Alida would rather read detective thrillers than pretend to have fun with just six fellow students. But who knows? Perhaps something interesting will happen?
Like detective stories? Currently learning Italian? Enough said then, this should be a no-brainer!
And especially in this festive season, as the story is set at New Year. And double-especially because Giallo a Capodanno is 25% off the usual easy reader price (so just £5.99) for the next seven days. From next Tuesday night, it’ll sell for £7.99. Hurry, hurry!
Check out the free sample chapter (.pdf) to get an idea of the level, length and format of this ebook, and so decide whether it will be suitable for you at your current level in Italian. This one isn’t suitable for beginners or for anyone with shaky reading skills, as you can verify for yourself if you click the above link and read/listen to the first eighth of the story.
If it’s too hard, or too easy, select something more appropriate from our Catalog page instead! There you’ll find all of our ebook easy Italian readers, from the lowest level to the highest.
