Learn Italian online

Blog from Italy meets Volette.com

I met up with Nevadan Joe Tangredi, the guy behind travel site start-up Volette.com, and his Italian cousin Giuseppe, here in sunny Milan yesterday afternoon. Giuseppe works for Endemol, the tv production company, which makes a whole host of programs for Italian TV.

Joe, an ex-Capitol Hill legislative assistant turned web entrepreneur, and I chatted about a number of things including his Volette site and another very interesting project. He also told me that Volette is to launch an original new service shortly. Well, he did not actually tell me what the new service is, alas, but he told me enough to intrigue me.

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.

Once I know more, I’ll write about it here.

It’s quite late now (12:30), and I’m a little tired, so I’m not going to write much more. But I can assure you that I’ll be writing more Joe and his other interesting project. Suffice it to sat that it’s something that could do an awful lot of good for Italy, if it gets off the ground. And I really hope it does.
