Free Online Lesson reminder & Saturday’s Easy Italian News

Just a quick reminder about this week’s Free Trial Online Italian Lesson offer, which ends tomorrow night some time (Sunday February 17th).

There won’t be another chance to try a FREE one-to-one online Italian lesson until November, when the next promotion is scheduled.

This week we’ve already given away over a hundred free online Italian lessons, worth £20 each.

But we still have capacity for a few more trial students.

So, if you’d like to try an online lesson (via Skype) with a native-speaker Italian teacher, click on
this link.

You don’t have to buy one to get one free, and there’s no need to provide credit card details.

In fact, there are no tricks at all.

Everybody who wants to try an online Italian lesson, gets one for free!

The idea, of course, is that some of you will buy additional lesson credits and continue to learn this way.

Others won’t, but that’s fine – hopefully they’ll say nice things about us to other people they know who are learning Italian.

Our marketing budget has to be spent…

So why shouldn’t YOU get a part of it?

PLEASE NOTE: this offer is for new students only. And that the Free Trial Italian Lesson offer is limited to one free online lesson per person.

Click this link to book your free trial Italian lesson

When we receive your order, our teaching manager, Lucia, will email you to find out what your needs and preferences are and, importantly, WHEN you’d like to do your free lesson.

That doesn’t have to be this week, by the way.

Though the offer ends on Sunday night, there’s no hard and fast deadline for actually doing the free lesson.

  • The Free Trial Online Italian Lesson offer ends on Sunday, 17/02/19
  • You don’t have to DO the lesson this week, just ‘book’ it
  • A hundred or so people have already signed up for a trial lesson, there are a few slots still available
  • This offer is for NEW STUDENTS ONLY
  • If you booked a free trial last time but didn’t take it – try again!
  • But if you’ve already done a free trial in the past, sorry but this isn’t for you
  • Once you’ve completed your lesson, you’ll be sent a 15% discount coupon

100 FREE Online Italian Lessons (10,000 Missing Listeners?)

Overnight I had an email from Valerie:

I struggled with listening to … Italian dialogue …, including A1 books until I signed up for on line lessons. These Skype lessons are the best way to learn Italian. I have improved in every way, particularly my listening.

which was good to hear, in particular as this week at EasyReaders.Org we have a FREE TRIAL ONLINE ITALIAN LESSON promotion, and I’d been wondering how to promote it.

This is an offer we do every six months or so – the last one was in November 2018 and the next one won’t be until November 2019.

Each time we aim to give away a hundred free online Italian lessons, worth £20 each.

These are the only moments each year when you get to try an online lesson (via Skype) with a native-speaker Italian teacher at a cost of exactly ZERO.

There’s no risk –  you don’t have to buy one to get one free, no payment details are asked for, all we need to organise your lesson is your email address.

There are no tricks. It’s a genuinely-free offer!

N.B. This promotion is for new students only, and the free trial lesson is limited to one per person.

Here’s the link you need to book your free trial Italian lesson

Once we receive your order, Lucia, our teaching manager, will contact you to find out what your needs and preferences are and, importantly, WHEN you’d like to do your free lesson.

That doesn’t have to be this week, by the way.

The offer ends on Sunday night but that’s just the deadline for responding to the offer.

There’s no limit to the time available to actually do the free lesson.

  • The Free Trial Online Italian Lesson offer ends on Sunday, 17/02/19
  • You don’t have to DO the lesson this week, just ‘book’ it
  • This offer is for NEW STUDENTS ONLY
  • If you booked a free trial last time but didn’t take it – try again!
  • But if you’ve already done a free trial in the past, sorry but this isn’t for you
  • Once you’ve completed your lesson, you’ll be sent a 15% discount coupon

New Half-Price Italian ‘Easy Reader’ Book of the Week!

This week at EasyReaders.org we have a half-price ebook ‘Book of the Week’ offer!

Cover image: Nuovo cinema paradisoIt’s Nuovo Cinema Paradiso, one of the classics of Italian cinema.

Thanks to Caroline, whose class is doing the film for their Italian A-level exam, who suggested this.

Normally £7.99, this ebook version of the classic movie will be 50% off, just £3.99, for the next week or so.

So, what’s it about?

One of Italian cinema’s masterpieces, the Oscar-winning ‘Nuovo Cinema Paradiso’, directed by Giuseppe Tornatore, is retold here for learners of Italian.

Growing up without a father in post-WW2 Sicily isn’t easy, but Totò makes friends with Alfredo, projectionist at the town’s only cinema, and develops a passion for movies…

And for £3.99 you get:

  • .pdf e-book (+ audio available free online at soundcloud.com)
  • 8 chapters to read and listen to
  • comprehension questions to check your understanding
  • an Italian/English glossary of ‘difficult’ terms for the level
  • download the Free Sample Chapter (.pdf) to check the level and format BEFORE you buy

Your e-book will be emailed to you within 24 hours of your purchase.

What else should I add?

Nuovo Cinema Paradiso is included elsewhere in our online shop as part of the ‘Nine Book Of The Film Easy Readers – Save 50%!‘ bundle, which offers exceptional value.

So film lovers might already have this one. Sorry!

But anyone who tries Nuovo Cinema Paradiso this week and, enjoying it, would like to buy the ‘Nine Book Of The Film Easy Readers – Save 50%!‘ bundle, don’t let the fact that you already have one of the titles put you off.

As with all of our great value ebook ‘bundles’, there’s a note in the product information which goes something like this:

And if you have already purchased some of these previously?

No problem.

Just write to us at the time of your order, telling us which ones you already have, and we’ll offer substitutes which you’ll like just as much!

Not interested in classic movies?

We have plenty of original stories for you to choose from, in both ‘easy reader‘ and ‘parallel text‘ formats.

View all the material for learning Italian (and other languages!) on our Catalog page.

P.S.

Don’t forget the latest bulletin from EasyItalianNews.com, will you? It’s free!

New! ‘Indagine su un cittadino al di sopra di ogni sospetto’

Today at EasyReaders.Org we’ve published a NEW Italian easy reader!

It’s Indagine su un cittadino al di sopra di ogni sospetto, which has got to be one of the longest ebook titles ever!

Italian easy reader ebooks - Indagine su un cittadino al di sopra di ogni sospetto - cover image

However, lengthy moniker or not, the 1970 political thriller on which our ‘easy reader’ is based was a massive success for director Elio Petri, winning many prizes, including that year’s Oscar for the best movie in a foreign language.

The story takes place in Rome in the summer of 1969, at what would be the beginning of Italy’s ‘years of lead’. It reflects on the power of the apparatus of the state, and the roles played by those who worked within it or rebelled against it.

The unnamed protagonist, a senior police officer and head of the homicide squad, murders his lover but then immediately sets out to leave as many clues as possible…

There’s a free sample chapter (.pdf) to download, so you can check the level and format is suitable and listen to the online audio (look for the link at the top of Chapter 1.)

From next week Indagine su un cittadino al di sopra di ogni sospetto will be priced at £7.99 in our online shop.

But this first week, it’s 25% less – at just £5.99!

P.S.

It’s 2019! And so the perfect moment for building new, positive language-learning habits!

Just to check then, have you listened to today’s FREE edition of Easy Italian News?

Each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday you can get simplified Italian-language news stories directly in your inbox – that’s eight or so brief articles along with an online audio recording to listen to as often as you like!

New Italian easy reader: ‘Valeria, Michele e le maschere’

This week at EasyReaders.Org sees the publication of a NEW Italian easy reader: Valeria, Michele e le maschere

Easy Italian readers - Valeria, Michele e le maschere - cover image

If you’re still learning Italian, you should definitely take a look!

But if not?

Then do ‘unsubscribe’ from receiving articles like this one – you should see a link at the bottom which will do that for you.

Valeria has been single for months now. She meets men but after going out a few times they seem reluctant to commit, or even return her messages! She wonders whether the dating app, Tinder, might be worth a try?

Michele spends his Saturday evenings alone, playing computer games. If only he wasn’t so shy, he’d meet more people. And then, maybe find a girlfriend? Perhaps the solution is online…

There’s a free sample chapter (.pdf) to download, so you can check the level and format is suitable (and listen to the online audio – look for the link at the top of Chapter 1.)

From next week Valeria, Michele e le maschere will sell in our online shop for £7.99, but this first week it’s 25% less, at just £5.99.

Get it while it’s cheaper!

And if you’ve already spent your ‘learn Italian’ budget this month?

No worries!

Listen to this morning’s edition of Easy Italian News, instead.

You get eight minutes of Italian listening practice, accompanied by a simplified transcript to help you figure out what you’re hearing.

All absolutely free, with no registration, logging in, or other messing about required!
