Hope you had a nice ‘fine settimana’, relaxed, ate good things, studied Italian…
And here we are again, è già lunedì…
But as promised, it’s time for the Autumn/Fall Sale!
Those of you who’ve been with us for a while will know that we do four sales a year, spaced out so that people who want to take lessons with one of our online teachers won’t have too long to wait from one promotion to the next.
The next one will be the ‘January’ sale, that starts in December, right after Christmas.
Then the Easter/Spring sale, depending on whether Easter is early or late.
Then the Summer Sale (first week in July), and we’ll be back to late September and the Autumn/Fall sale.
This one is timed for the moment when students are starting college courses, non-students are joining evening classes, and autodidacts (like me and perhaps you) are giving themselves a kick in the pants and setting ambitious goals for the remaining months of the year.
Buy a set of ten online lessons now, for example, and you’ll have enough to get you most of the way towards the next sale, at Christmas/New Year. That’s the logic, anyway.
During a sale, my emails tend to be a LOT MORE COMMERCIAL, and there’s no new free stuff (like, for example, our ongoing Dante series).
There’s still loads of materials on the club website, open to anyone to use at zero cost. A good place to begin is our Levels Page.
But this week, and for the whole week, I’ll be focusing on selling online lessons and ebooks, so as to pay the club’s bills and to keep our team of online teachers gainfully employed.
Don’t want to hear about the Autumn/Fall Sale?
Then stop reading these emails, at least until next Monday (30th Sept.), when things will go back to normal.
There’s a link at the bottom of the page. Click on it and follow the very obvious and simple procedure to permanently remove your email from the club mailing list.
Così. So, on to the SALE!!
Save 20% on everything in our online shop – online Italian lessons with a club teacher, self-study workbooks, Italian easy readers (including our ‘Day in the life of..‘ series and our Classic Italian Movies series), and of course Italian-English parallel texts, of which we have 21, at different levels from near-beginner to strong-intermediate.
The coupon code you need to get your discount is:
Don’t know what would work best for you?
If you look at our catalog page, you’ll find links to all of our ebook titles along with links to the sample chapters that you can click to view or download right there and then, with no searching around.
Use the catalog page to ‘scroll’ through the levels, checking sample chapters until you find texts that challenge you but that aren’t TOO difficult.
And if you’re selecting easy readers, don’t forget to listen to the audio, too.
The audio is available free online. To see if it’s suitable for your level (i.e. not too fast), try it first!
The link to the audio is usually at the top of Chapter 1.
So, make your picks from the catalog page, checking sample chapters as you go.
Then, when you’re done, go to your cart to complete your order.
Don’t forget to use the coupon code!
New to online shopping? Not sure about coupon codes and the like?
So here are what I hope will be simple-to-follow instructions:
2.) Then visit your shopping cart and copy and paste the coupon code ( Autumn-Sale-2019 ) into the box where it says ‘Apply coupon’.
3.) Press the ‘Apply coupon’ button.
Note that the 20% discount is applied to the cart total, not to each indivdual ebook or online lesson package.
Which means that when you’re looking at the shopping cart, the prices of individual items won’t change when you press the ‘Apply Coupon’ button.
Don’t start cursing or banging your iPad against the wall. Only the cart TOTAL changes, and you won’t see that if it’s off the bottom of your screen.
This confuses me every time, and it’s my shop!
Scroll down to check that the cart total has been discounted BEFORE you proceed to the payment stage.
Any problems, just email me!
If you make a mistake, we can fix it, don’t worry.
- Coupon code Autumn-Sale-2019 gets you 20% off everything!
- The sale ends at midnight on Sunday 29th of September 2019
- There’s no minimum or maxium spend

- The code will work on items which are already discounted, such as ebook multipacks
- Though it can’t be used together with other coupons
- Choose from a range of payment options (Amazon, Paypal or bank transfer)
N.b. AMAZON PAYMENTS – Amazon has been buggy recently. It’s probably something to do with the interface between them and our shop, but we haven’t been able to fix it. Anyway, what MIGHT happen is that there are TWO payment authorisations not one, which can be alarming. People think they’re going to be charged twice. That never, in fact, happens. Rest assured that I now check every ‘Amazon order’ very carefully. Duplicate authorisations are cancelled or eventually expire. And if you have any doubts whatsoever, just email me for reassurance.
So, ready to save on online Italian lessons and ebooks?
Remember, the next offer won’t be until the end of this year – stock up now!
Here’s that coupon code one more time…
