some practice in Italian?

Post Posted: Wed Apr 13, 2005 5:35 pm

Hi all.

I have an English + Italian bilingual site called "the voLabulary" at volabulary.blogspot.com, which is "For Italian and English learners (and hey, you never stop learning!)".

Every day I propose an interesting word (chosen for not being too similar in the two languages), and a short post (I hope not too boring) in both English and Italian. You can also subscribe to the mailing list and receive the word of the day by email. Everything is "free as in beer".

I was originally targeting this at italian students of English, but since:
1. the voLabulary is (I hope) perfectly symmetrical
2. students of the Italian language may have more dificulties in finding internet learning resources
3. the voLabulary is not commercial
someone I know suggested that some of you, as English speakers possibly wanting to practice Italian, may be interested too.

Any feedback of any nature is infintely welcome, since we're still in beta.

The current URL is volabulary.blogspot.com

Thanks, and hope this is not to OOT...

Hi there,

A warm welcome to Expat Focus and our forums, thanks for the site tip. I had a look yesterday and have now bookmarked it...I've only been to Italy a couple of times but it is stunning and I like the idea of looking at a couple of sentences in Italian, with the English to compare to...great stuff.

Thanks a lot, hope we can call on you if we get Italy queries from other members Wink ??

Stay in touch,

Jo

Please by all means go ahead with any Italy-related queries!

As long as they don't relate to how our current political situation came to be, I will try to answer them... Wink
