Lesson #090, Friday


Fri, Dec 02, 2016


Adjectives are words which modify or describe nouns. Since they tell us about a noun, they must agree in number and gender with the noun they are describing.

Numbers and adjectives which tell how many, precede the nouns they modify:

tre arance = three oranges

molti libri = many books

troppo rumore = too much noise

Adjectives of color always follow the nouns they modify:

una casa rossa = a red house

una penna gialla = a yellow pen

Most other adjectives will follow the nouns they modify, but you will learn through conversation that some are flexible and may come either before or after the noun:

una donna intelligente = an intelligent woman

un uomo gentile = a kind man

Adjectives ending in 'o' agree in both number and gender with the noun they modify. Adjectives ending in 'e' only agree in number:

ragazzo alto = tall boy

ragazzi alti = tall boys

ragazza alta = tall girl

ragazze alte = tall girls

uomo forte = strong man

uomini forti = strong men

donna forte = strong woman

donne forti = strong women

Hi everybody, my name's Mike and this is the Let's Speak Italian podcast. So you've listened to a few sample lessons, and hopefully you're learning how to speak Italian.

Well with the first 100 lessons completed, I wanted to release the first few lessons for free as a little teaser so that you can see just how easy it is to learn to speak Italian. Now, by going to the website, you can buy the first 100 lessons for only $15.00. That includes 100 lessons, plus 20 review lessons as well, for a total of 120 lessons in all. That's 24 weeks of lessons, for only $15.00.  It's over 13 hours of Italian lessons, for the price of what you might pay for one music CD.

I've found that the key to learning to speak Italian is to learn a little bit every day, and to practice it with your friends. So get lessons 1-100, and listen to one lesson, every day for 24 weeks. By the end, you'll be amazed at how easy it was, and just how much you can learn by practicing a few minutes every day.

To buy the first 100 lessons, just go to the web site at www.letsspeakitalian.net and click on one of the banner ads. If you want to Download Lessons 1-100, click on the 'Download' banner ad. Once I get your payment, I'll e-mail you a link to the files. Be patient though, it might take a few hours before I check my email.  If you would rather Get Lessons 1-100 on CD-Rom, click on the 'CD' banner ad and once I receive your payment, I'll mail the CD-Rom to you.  For only $15.00 you'll be speaking Italian before you know it.

Grazie tanto, arrivederci.
