eBook of the Week, ‘Per colpa di una lettera’ (B2), £4.99

This week’s half-price eBook of the Week offer is the B2-level ‘Per colpa di una lettera‘.

Is B2 (upper-intermediate) too hard for you? No worries! We’ve reorganised our ebook catalog by level, from the easiest to the hardest. Find something more appropriate by following these links: A1 | A1/A2 | A2 | A2/B1 | B1 | B1/B2 | B2 | B2/C1 | C1 | C1/C2 | C2 

As with other recent eBook of the Week offers, we only published ‘Per colpa di una lettera‘ last summer, but sales were slow. Don’t let that put you off, though. It was July, and who studies Italian in July?

Per colpa di una lettera‘ is an entertaining and readable story for intermediate/upper-intermediate-level students of Italian. If that’s you, do take a look, as reading and listening to Italian at approximately your level is a great way to improve your Italian comprehension skills – which you will of course need in the future – as well as being a huge help in consolidating the grammar and unfamiliar words you’ll encounter elsewhere.

Plus a chapter a day of an ebook ‘easy reader’ is much more fun than memorising grammar conjugations and vocabulary lists! Below you’ll find a link to a free sample chapter. Why not give reading in and listening to Italian a try?

And for lower-level students? There’s no promotion this week, but the audios for the entire story of all of our easy readers are available online, no purchase required. Browse the lower level catalog pages and click on the audio links, until you find something that feels about right for you.

eBook of the Week, ‘A Cagliari ci sono i fenicotteri’, £4.99

This week’s half-price eBook of the Week offer is A1/2-level ‘A Cagliari ci sono i fenicotteri‘.

(Too easy for you? No worries! We’ve reorganised our ebook catalog by level, from the easiest to the hardest. Find something more challenging by following these links: A1 | A1/A2 | A2 | A2/B1 | B1 | B1/B2 | B2 | B2/C1 | C1 | C1/C2 | C2 )

As with last week’s eBook of the Week offer, we only published ‘A Cagliari ci sono i fenicotteri‘ last summer, but sales were slow. Don’t let that put you off, though. It was June, and who studies Italian in June?

But ‘A Cagliari ci sono i fenicotteri‘ is an entertaining and readable story for elementary-level students of Italian, of which there appear to be many. So we figured it would be worth promoting again!

That said, elementary-level language students tend to fixate on grammar and long lists of new vocabulary, ignoring reading and listening practice. If that sounds like you, then hold up a second!

Reading and listening to Italian AT YOUR LEVEL is a great way to improve your Italian comprehension skills – which you will of course need in the future – but it’s also a huge help in consolidating the grammar and unfamiliar words you’ll encounter elsewhere. Plus, it’s much more fun than memorising stuff! Below you’ll find a link to a free sample chapter. Why not give reading in and listening to Italian a try?

And for higher level students? There’s no promotion this week, but the audio for the ENTIRE STORY of ‘A Cagliari ci sono i fenicotteri‘ is available online, and can be listened to without buying the ebook itself. That would be good Italian listening practice for students at any level, no matter how advanced! You’ll find the link to the online audio on the new A1/A2 catalog page:

A1 | A1/A2 | A2 | A2/B1 | B1 | B1/B2 | B2 | B2/C1 | C1 | C1/C2 | C2 )

and in the free sample chapter .pdf, linked to below.

New B1-level ‘easy reader’ ebook, – 25% this first week!

Improve your Italian reading and listening skills with our newest ‘easy Italian reader’, La volta buona.

This one is level B1 (intermediate), and perfect for dog lovers who, between walks and treats, manage to find time to learn Italian.

La volta buona (B1) Easy Italian reader ebook - La volta buona - cover image

“In Italia ci sono circa 1.200 canili e rifugi per cani. In queste strutture vivono circa 120.000 cani. In Italia esiste una legge che impedisce il sacrificio dei cani in canile. Però, solo il 30% dei cani abbandonati viene adottato da una nuova famiglia. Il resto passa la vita in una prigione.”

Gigio is overweight and has skinny legs so, unless there’s food on offer, he moves slowly, or not at all. His cellmate, Pablo, is a ‘cane corso’, a large, powerful and intimidating dog. The human, Carola, who brings their meals often tells Gigio, “Pablo è un cane alfa, tu no… Tu sei un pacifista.” It’s just as well, thinks Gigio!

Only the most heartless students of Italian will read Gigio’s entertaining ‘prison diaries’ without wondering whether they’ve space at home for a dog…

Check the Free Sample Chapter (.pdf) to confirm that the material is appropriate for your current level in Italian.

If it’s too hard, or too easy, there are plenty of other ‘easy reader’ ebooks listed on our Catalog page, organised by language, type and level (all with free sample chapters!)

Final Two Half-Price Italian Movie ‘Ebooks of the Week’

This week we have our final half-price Italian movie easy reader ‘Ebook of the Week’ promotion (for this year, at least.)

Final because next week we’ll be publishing something new, and after that we have other promotions and offers scheduled – there are lots of other ebooks for learners, besides classic Italian movies, for you to explore!

So on to this week’s discounted ‘easy reader’ titles from our Classic Italian movie series – the last two bargains (for now) are  Amarcord (level A2/B1, pre-intermediate/intermediate) and Ieri, oggi, domani (level B1/B2, intermediate/upper-intermediate).

The two short texts with online audio were written for you by an award-winning scriptwriter, who teaches Italian between movie projects, the idea being to make well-known films from Italian movie history accessible for all learners of the Italian language, not just advanced students with developed listening-comprehension skills.

As in previous weeks, I’d advise checking out the reviews and downloading the sample chapters BEFORE you buy your copies. Both of these films are ‘non-traditional’ by Hollywood movie-making standards (except virtually everything by Tarantino, obviously), which is to say that you don’t get spoon-fed, that a certain amount of thinking is involved, that the narrative might not proceed  in a linear fashion, that the ending might not be what you were expecting, and so on…

Cioè, read what other people thought, and check the level is suitable for where you’re at with your Italian:

‘Amarcord’ reviews | Free Sample Chapter (.pdf)

‘Ieri, oggi, domani’ reviews | Free Sample Chapter (.pdf)

Don’t forget that this week each ebook will cost you just £4.99. Why not get BOTH, but pay just £9.99, the usual price for one?

For a complete learning and cultural experience, read/listen to the ebook, then seek out the movies online and give them a try, too.

Cover image: Amarcord

Directed by the brilliant Federico Fellini, ‘Amarcord’ is a masterpiece of Italian movie history. The title means “I remember” in dialect. The movie is Fellini’s heartfelt homage to his hometown, Rimini. Through the eyes of Titta – the young protagonist – we meet some of Rimini’s characters and live through a typical year in the town’s life in the early 1930s.

New B2-level ‘easy reader’ ebook, – 25% this first week!

Improve your Italian reading and listening skills with our newest ‘easy Italian reader’, Il sesso nell’antica Grecia, level B2 (upper-intermediate).

Easy Italian reader ebook - Il sesso nell'antica Grecia - cover image

Motivating Italian reading and listening practice, memorable insights into human sexual behaviour, and plenty of triva to quiz friends or colleagues with!

Check out the cover image for an idea of whether this material might be unsuitable for you (in which case, please don’t download it…) Then use the free sample chapter linked to below to confirm that the material is appropriate for your current level in Italian.

Il mondo occidentale contemporaneo è figlio della civiltà greca. La nostra cultura è nata nelle antiche poleis, piccole e combattive città-stato come Atene e Sparta. Però il passare dei secoli e nuove civiltà, l’influenza del cristianesimo e le scoperte scientifiche hanno modificato profondamente il nostro sistema di pensiero, le nostre abitudini e convinzioni. Anche in tema di sesso le cose sono cambiate radicalmente.

Nelle prossime pagine, utilizzeremo i miti greci e i loro protagonisti, gli dèi e gli eroi, per introdurre gli argomenti. E poi tratteremo questi temi da un punto di vista storico. Quali abitudini sessuali e quali perversioni avevano gli antichi greci? Quali comportamenti sessuali erano socialmente accettati e quali no? Insomma: come vivevano la sessualità gli uomini e le donne nelle poleis greche?
