This episode’s audio doesn’t exist, and we have technology to blame (poof! gone into cyberspace!). Instead of listening to this episode, feel free to use the notes below to learn more about the topic. And if you’re like, “CHER, NO. I NEED THIS EPISODE,” then let me know in the comments below. I’ll put it on my list to record again!
If you haven’t listened to episode 7 yet, hop back and do so as it’s the first part to this 5-part series for the last week of the month.
As mentioned previously, during the last week of every month, I share a mini-story with you which could be about my past travels, my Italian friends, cultural experiences, etc. This one in particular happens to be about my thoughts about Italy before and after my first visit.
The Breakdown (not to be confused with dubstep)
Prima di arrivare in Italia, ho letto molti libri di autori e viaggiatore Italiani.
Before arriving in Italy, I read many books by Italian authors and travelers.
Da queste storie, ho imparato molte cose dell’italia.
From these stories, I learned many things about Italy.
Per esempio, ho imparato che tutti gli uomini italiani sono romantici, comprensivi, e alti.
For example, I learned that all of the Italian men are romantic, understanding, and tall.
Ho imparato che tutti gli italiani sono golosi.
I learned that all of the Italians are gluttonous.
Ho guardato anche film italiani e pensavo che tutti i film sono triste.
I also watched Italian movies and I thought that all of movies were sad.
e che la gente del sud Italia è pazza, perchè la mia migliore amica ha frequentato due ragazzi, uno siciliano e l’altro napoletano, ed erano così.
And that the people of South Italy are crazy because my best friend dated two guys, one Sicilian and from Naples, and that’s how it was.
Your task for today, should you choose to accept it, is to choose an Italian movie that you really want to watch and find a time this week to watch the whole thing.
