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.

Today, I popped into a local butchers here in Milan which is a whole five minutes on foot from my house and had a chat with the friendly owner Silvia about the possibility of making the sausages here in Italy.

I am good at eating them though. Anyway, next stop: find a sausage recipe.

The sausage recipe and ingredients have been located. Now I shall have another word with the butchers and see what they say. With a little luck Cumberland sausages may soon be available in Italy…..
