This fall we’ve been busy publishing ‘easy reader’ ebooks based on famous Italian operas.
The first was a simplified text + audio version of Nabucco, one of composer Verdi’s most famous operas. Next we did Puccini’s romantic classic, Turandot, then another Puccini weepy, La Bohème, and back to Verdi, and his Rigoletto.
This week, yet more Verdi, this time ‘La traviata‘, and as always, the first week it’s 25% discounted (offer ends Sunday 11th December 2022).
Liven up your language studies with this interesting skills practice material, while learning about Italian culture at the same time!
