Aiuta Guang Li A Trovare Il Suo Portatile

Reader Guang Li wrote to tell me that he lost his laptop on the 9th August on a train between Genoa and Florence.

Lettore Guang Li mi ha scritto a dirmi che lui abbia perso il suo computer portatile – altri dettagli in italiano seguiranno.

On his laptop, which was a black HP model, there were prized photos of a trip round Europe, and six years worth of dissertation research.

The operating system was in Chinese.   Guang Li would like his computer back, if at all possible, and he will pay a reward – but only once his computer is back in his hands.

I’m going to make an exception and post something in, badly written, Italian, so here goes.  Corrections more than welcome!

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

Portatile Perso

Non so come spiegarevi questo, e non so se voi potreste o vorreste provare a fare qualcosa.

Ve lo spiego.  Ho appena ricevuto un mail da un studente dell’università di Oxford.  Questo studente ha perso il suo portatile sul treno tra Genova e Firenze.  L’accaduto ha’ capitato il 9 agosto attorno a mezzo giorno. Era un portatile nera, HP, con un sistema operativo in lingua cinese.

Sul hard disk c’erano tutti foto di un viaggio in Italia, Francia ecc, ed in più, il lavoro di ricerca dall’ultimi sei anni che Guang ha messo insieme per il suo tesi di laurea.

Se qualcuno sa qualcosa, per favore fateci sapere – magari tramite un commento.   Grazie mille.  Ci sarà un compenso – ma questo sarà pagato soltanto quando il computer è nelle mani di Guang Li.

Nella speranza di sentire qualcosa.

More WikiLeaks Woes for Berlusconi

It has been reported that Silvio Berlusconi’s name crops up in 652 of the latest batch of officially secret documents revealed by WikiLeaks in what has come to be known as ‘CableGate’.

The 62 texts released so far which mention Berlusconi have tended to shed negative light on Italy’s beleaguered leader, who is fighting for his political life in Italy at this very moment.

Colourful Italian

Like most languages, Italian boasts quite a variety of bad language, and Italians, as I have mentioned somewhere elsewhere in this blog, are not too shy about resorting to it. Knowing what is OK, and what is not, can help those learning Italian avoid causing themselves some embarrassment.
