This week we’ve published a new Italian easy reader in our ‘eBook of the Classic Italian Movie’ series, ‘Io la conoscevo bene‘.
As always with our ‘classic movie’ ebooks, this one is written by an Italian teacher who is also an award-winning scriptwriter, so knows his stuff – they’re ideal for students of Italian who need reading/listening practice, but also for anyone interested in Italian cinema! Browse all eighteen titles in the series here and here.
The latest one is Io la conoscevo bene, level is B1, so intermediate. Until Sunday February 26th it’s reduced 25% from the usual ebook price of £7.99 to just £5.99.
You’ll find more details below, but as always, I suggest checking out the FREE sample chapter (.pdf) before you buy a copy. That way, you’ll know whether the level is suitable, and that the format works on the device you intend to use it on.
The FREE sample chapter (.pdf) also contains a link to the audio for the WHOLE STORY, which is available online for anyone who’d like to listen to it (though having the text, which is not free, obviously helps with that…)
Antonio Pietrangeli’s 1965 movie, ‘Io la conoscevo bene’, features Stefania Sandrelli as beautiful Adriana, an aspiring movie star who’s looking for something more than just a career on the screen…
Giovanni Galavotti’s re-telling of the story of the film for learners of Italian makes a great introduction before watching the movie itself (ideally in Italian!) Or it can be used simply as supplementary reading/listening material, guaranteed to liven up any study program!
