After all these years in Italy, I still occasionally mix up the food (pizza) and the city (Pisa).
As you surely know, the first is pronounced with a /ts/ sound.
While the second, confusingly, is said with a /z/ rather than the ‘s’ it’s written with.
Perhaps it’s that spelling/pronunciation difference that sometimes sends my brain cells haywire…
Anyway, talking of Pisa, today I’m pleased to announce the publication (and special launch price) of our latest easy Italian reader: ‘Galileo, Pisa e la luna‘.
And very good it is too!
So today, instead of exercises, I recommend you take a look at the FREE SAMPLE CHAPTER (.pdf).
Click here to view the .pdf, which contains the text of Chapter 1, a glossary of ‘difficult’ terms, and an exercise to test your understanding.
There’s also a link to the online audio for the whole story – all eight chapters, free!
To save the .pdf to your computer or tablet, right click on the link and choose ‘save link as’ or whatever similar option your device gives you.
That way you can print it out to study in the traditional way, should you so choose.
And if you like the sample, be aware that this week only the full version is available from both of our online shops at 25% off.
That’s €7.49 instead of the usual €9.99 in the OnlineItalianClub shop.
Or, if you prefer to get rid of some of those now-much-devalued British pounds, over at easyreaders.org it’ll set you back just £5.99 instead of the usual easy reader price of £7.99.
And yes, I know I’m getting killed on the exchange rate. But I’m patriotic…
(EasyReaders.Org also offers the popular the ‘Pay With Amazon’ option, by the way…)
OK, so that’s it for today.
Enjoy the sample chapter!
Ci sentiamo mercoledì.
