Today I have two new Italian exercises for you to try. The first one’s really easy – you just have to match the nouns and adjectives. Anyone with a reasonable general knowledge should do fairly well at it.
The other one, unfortunately, didn’t go so well for me – I scored only four. But don’t let that put you off.
Whether you get the answers correct or not, the exercise is a helpful way to brush up on the main uses of the verb ‘mettere’, all of which are ubiquitous in spoken Italian.
Just don’t say I didn’t warn you…
Consumed those? Hungry for more?
Allora, don’t forget this week’s ‘Book Of The Week‘ offer, another Fellini masterpiece retold by our script-writing online Italian teacher, Giovanni, as an easy reader (8 short chapters, glossaries, exercises and audio).
What’s it about? Basically, a year in the life of Rimini (where my in-laws live) in fascist-era nineteen-thirties.
Check out the US trailer on Youtube (it’s in English) to get an idea.
If you don’t see the video box here below (you won’t, if you’re reading this in an email) then copy and paste this link [https://youtu.be/BtG9ZM-ZHnY], without the square brackets, into your usual browser. That should take you right there.
(Above is where the video box should be – if you don’t see it, click here.)
Obviously, if you want to watch the whole movie, you’ll need to find the DVD some place or hope Netflix has it.
But if you’re OK with our brief retelling of the story, specifically-designed for language learners like you and lovingly-crafted by a real-life scriptwriter, well, here are the links:

Oh, and just so you know, I’m planning to contact our existing online students privately with a pre-offer, which I’ll send by personal e-mail.
The idea is to give them a chance to reserve a place with their usual teacher, before the rush starts.
So, if you’re one of our regulars, or would like to restart your one-to-one lessons, look out for an email from me (probably tomorrow) with your advance coupon code.
