Having finished our Italian Conversations series on Monday, it’s time for something ‘new’.
Well, when I say ‘new’, what I mean is that I’ll be pulling together material from across our site to create ‘Italian lessons’ with explanations of the grammar, listening practice and exercises.
The material itself isn’t actually new, but the way it’s presented will be. Instead of having to go hunting around the site for something on, say, articles, you’ll be able to find it all in one place.
To better understand what I’m hoping to do, take a look at Lesson 01: Italian Articles.
The level is, of course, rather basic, but I personally could study articles a million times and still not be sure about which one to use.
I hope, therefore, that you’ll find this new series of Italian lessons to be a useful refresher, or a useful starting point, according to your situation…
New Italian Easy Reader: Amarcord!
It would be remiss of me not to remind you about our new Italian easy reader, Amarcord.
Directed by the brilliant Federico Fellini, ‘Amarcord’ is a masterpiece of Italian movie history. The title means “I remember” in dialect. The movie is Fellini’s heart-felt homage to his hometown, Rimini. Through the eyes of Titta – the young protagonist – we meet some of Rimini’s characters and live through a typical year in the town’s life in the early 1930s.
The free sample chapter (.pdf) should give you an idea of the level of difficulty and also contains a link to the audio of the story (all of it), which you can listen to online.
Amarcord is on offer this week at -25%, €7.50 instead of the usual easy reader price of €9.99.
The other titles in our ‘film series’ of easy readers are:
- La dolce vita
- Nuovo cinema paradiso
- I soliti ignoti
- Ladri di biciclette
- Il sorpasso
- Divorzio all’italiana
and free sample chapters are available for those too!
