Information on learning Italian

To the students of the Italian Course.                                                            April 16, 2016

As we talked about at the last Cultural group meeting with a few of the students in the class, here are the links to some of the videos and sites to help you review your Italian lessons.

I have collected and copied some of these lessons in a folder in my Google drive that I have used in the last 2 summers to introduce the language  to the middle school students that participate in the Youth Ambassador Exchange Program (part of Walnut Creek Sister Cities program with Noceto (PM).

The 2015-2016 YAE Italian and Hungarian students were here this week. This concludes a very successful   and enjoyable exchange and now we get to work for the 2016-2017 exchange.

The folder name is YAE- Noceto Language videos and audios

The link is:

and it should be viewable to anyone with the link.

The subfolders are:


Rich Steve Italian Phrase book    (This is a folder where I read the pages from the book I gave the students that they take with them to Italy)

and the Italian Living Course CDs both in CD format and Mp3 in subfolders, here:

I copied these videos from YouTube and if you have problem accessing the Google Drive here are the original links and the sequence.
