Half-price Ebook of the Week – two options this time!

Next week, from the 5th to the 12th of October, has its Autumn Sale, with a 20% reduction on EVERYTHING in our online shop, assuming you remember to use the coupon code (watch this space!) If you’d prefer not to hear about it, click on the ‘unsubscribe’ link, in the header or footer of any emailed article you receive from us.

This week’s 50%-Off ‘Ebook of the Week’ is the B1/B2 (intermediate/upper-intermediate) level ‘easy Italian reader’ Segreti e polpette, and it’s also available as an Italian-English parallel text ebook, Italian/English Parallel Text: Segreti e polpette.

What’s the difference? Well, why not download the free sample chapter for each one and take a look?

It’s bascially the same story, but the ‘easy reader version’ (.pdf) comes with an audio recording, glossaries and exercises, whereas the Italian/English parallel text version (.pdf) has none of those things but DOES have a full translation from the original Italian into English, with numbered lines, so you can compare the original and the translation.
