Learn Italian online


While waiting for some students the other day I noticed an Italian golfing magazine lying around, so I picked it up and flicked through.  I’m not a golfer, and will probably never take up the sport.  However, I can understand the appeal of the sport and I rather like golf courses, which, more often than not, tend to enhance and not blight their surrounding environments.   

The Italian golf courses which were being shown off in this magazine were magnificent.  You could play a round in the midst of the mountains or on the stunning Sardinian coast.  Heck, if I were a golfer, I would think seriously about coming on a golfing holiday to Italy.  Not in the summer months, when it is too darned hot, but around April or May and during September or October.  You would not have to worry about rain-stops-play and wind should not be too much of problem either.

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.

Not being a golfer, I have no idea whether golfing hols in Italy are promoted outside this country. If they are not, they should be.  If they are, then that is perfect. 

Between rounds you could explore this wonderful country, eat interesting food and down lots of good wine.  Italy almost sounds like the perfect golfing country.  I’d choose it over St Andrews any day, but then, as I have said, I ain’t no golfer.

Photogenic Italy – A Tuscan Doorway

Here’s a photograph I took from my summer trip to Tuscany to help brighten up those winter blues a little. It’s not the photograph displayed next to this entry if you have come to the home page of BlogfromItaly.com, just in case you were wondering.

Hope you like it. For the technically minded, it was shot in RAW and then processing into .jpg via the interesting DxO Optics Pro 6 RAW processing program.

I’m quite happy with the end result.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could send and receive information on Italy via Twitter about just what we want? Well, we could, if we all agreed on which hashtags to use.
