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 comment in the Times must have had an effect on Italy’s president Napolitano too, as he made a public plea on TV tonight to the politicos.  And he told them, in no uncertain terms, to pull their fingers out and do something productive for a change.

Oh, and the Visco case continues to fizzle away.  The fallout from what appears to be a case of political meddling may well bring Prodi’s house of cards crashing down.   Not a great loss for Italy.  But, alas there isn’t much of an alternative to Mr Mozzarella.

Talk about being caught between the devil and the deep blue sea.

Think about the food, the weather, the wine, the women and ‘real’ Italians – I shall keep repeating to myself…….
