I’m in a rush, so I’ll just share the link to today’s new, free Italian exercise, which is on ‘preposizioni articolate‘.
Personally I can never get enough practise with these – I’m still mixing up ‘del’ and ‘dal’ after so many years of learning Italian.
Click here to refresh your memory. It’s worth paying particular attention to any that you get wrong.
And of course, you’ll find explanations and other practise exercises under ‘P’ (for preposizioni) in our Italian grammar index.
I soliti ignoti
Next week, as I mentioned on Monday, there’s the publication of the latest in our ‘Book of the Film’ series.
I watched ‘I soliti ignoti’, the film that our new Italian easy reader is based on, with my family last night.
Of course I didn’t understand everything. The film is over fifty years old, and the characters use words and expressions that have long fallen out of favor.
But with the subtitles on, I managed to follow the story with no problem, and to enjoy the jokes and the twists and turns of the plot, which is about a group of career criminals planning the robbery of a pawn-broker’s shop.
Having already proof-read the text of Giovanni’s excellent simplified version of the story certainly made it a lot easier.
So maybe you should hold off streaming the film until after you’ve also had the chance to read the easy reader version next week (publication is on Monday.)
In the meantime though, you can find the others in the ‘Book of the Film’ series in our online shop.
Sample chapters (with a link to the complete audio) for all of these are available in the easy readers section of our online shop, here.
