Learn Italian online


I've not been writing anything on this blog recently due to our little son being in hospital, once again. It's the seventh time with the same problem. The operation to remove part of his adenoids and his tonsils which took place in August last year does not seem to have had enough of an effect and the poor little chap's left eye has swollen up once more. It's a stressful time, and it looks as though he will be in hospital for at least another week.

The doctors are not sure what to do, but are discussing surgery as they seem to be worried that further attacks may lead to other complications which could affect his brain. This is a worrying thought indeed, as I would hate to lose him or to see his marvellous character altered by some brain damage.

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.

The problem flared up on literally the last day of our holiday in Sharm. Not a great way to end a holiday, as I'm sure you will agree.

I'm afraid that blogging is the last thing on my mind at the moment.

The Berlusconi government is on the brink of introducing a raft of cost cutting methods which are designed to reduce Italy’s spiralling public debt level, and help put Italy in a better position to face the post global economic crisis world. If all goes to plan, Italy will have another 24 Billion Euros in its coffers.
