2012 in review

Posted by Monica Corrias on December 31, 2012

I folletti delle statistiche di WordPress.com hanno preparato un rapporto annuale 2012 per questo blog.

Ecco un estratto:

About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 190.000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 3 years for that many people to see it. Your blog had more visits than a small country in Europe!

How can I say good luck in Italian?

Posted by Monica Corrias on February 23, 2009

As you probably know, in Italian the traditional way to say “good luck” is not  only “Buona fortuna” (literally = good luck), but rather “In bocca al lupo!” –> similar to English “Break a legs!”

When someone says that to you, there is a traditional very important reply that you are expected to give: “Crepi!” or “Crepi il lupo!

Today I would like to say “In bocca al lupo!”  to the students that are visiting Italy for them first time and that  should speak Italian. 

First of all I suggest learning Italian on the page “Italian classes”, but the most important hint is to try to get to know Italian people!  Remember that the purpose is to communicate, not just to do some academic exercises and you need to have conversation in Italian: the main focus is “to practise“!

I wrote some expressions – but only in Italian 😦  –  to accept an invitation or to refuse an invitation.

And remember the proverb:   Chi trova un amico, trova un tesoro!  =  Whoever finds a friend finds a treasure!

Thank you very much 🙂 and say me “in bocca al lupo!”

Learning Italian with Italian songs

Posted by Monica on September 8, 2008

I have created this blog to help students to have more fun studying their Italian on line.

All of you can find useful tips and links on pageItalian classes”, but tips not only about the grammar. Mind you, on page “Italian classes” I selected a few songs so, while you learn the Italian language, you could have a good time listening to Italian music. Search for the links!

I suggest your listening to Italian songs to improve your listening skill, your vocabulary and your confidence in Italian language and Italian mind. Here you can find one Giusy Ferreri‘s song [clik here for song and lyrics]

Buono studio e buon divertimento!
