This week, EasyReaders.Org published a new ebook ‘easy reader’ for students of Italian.
It’s called La Via Francigena, and tells of the author’s 20-day, 300 kilometer trek down the pilgrim’s trail from Lucca in Tuscany to Rome, where he lives (and teaches Italian.)
This is an excellent read, comes with free online audio, and includes many stimulating exercises.
Better still, it’s 25% off the usual ‘easy reader’ price, at just £5.99, instead of £7.99.
What’s not to like?
It’s a C2 level.
Which means that for a typical student of Italian, it’s going to be too hard, with complex language and an audio recorded at normal, native-speaker speed.
But I don’t want to put you off.
Check it for yourself by clicking on the free sample chapter download link below.
And the audio?
You’ll find the link to the free online audio – the WHOLE story – at the top of Chapter 1).
Too fast, right?
Roberto, the author with the blisters, has done other ebooks for us, too.
