Learn Italian online


Please Help Me find a New Look!

One of my readers, Rajab, has pointed out that this blog is becoming a bit messy. I have to agree, so I’ve been trying to find a new look. Only I can’t quite find what I’m looking for.

The people who have voted in my little poll have indicated that they prefer to see full posts, and not the snippets which so many ‘mamazine’ style blogs are erring towards.

What I’d like to do is to find a WordPress theme which does a bit of both. I’d like to show two or three full posts on the front page (with side bars), and then have six or so snippets beneath that show posts from my long list of categories (without side bars).

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.

If anyone knows of a free or even a commercial theme that can do this, then please let me know. I have tried messing about with WordPress code, but, a) I’m not very good at this and b) I don’t really have the time to do it. However, I would like to make this blog as easy to read as I can. And I’d like to be able to show a few ads, in the hope that this blog can become self supporting financially. I sort of like the idea of creating my own on-line newspaper about Italy.

Any and all practical suggestions will be considered.

Thanks, as ever, for reading.

Entrata libera

The title of this post, Entrata libera’ can be translated as being ‘free entry’. To where? You might well be asking. Well, the answer is: to shops in Italy.

Can’t sleep in hot and humid Milan? A Cotton Pillow is the Solution.

Our little one fell out of bed the other evening with a thump, which scared us a little, I have to say. Luckily, apart from frightening himself, he was OK and soon went back to sleep after shedding a few tears. However, what got to me more than the fall, was the puddle of sweat I noticed on his pillow. In fact, he had probably turned over in an attempt to get away from the damp. Hence, his fall.
