Our Italian language podcast is up and running and we’d like to offer our first five episodes for free, right on our website.
This, our first, takes a deeper look at an idiom we explored in S2E1 of Idiomthèque: “In bocca al lupo,” or the traditional way Italians wish each other good luck. Listen in for an explanation of this expression’s roots, a closer look at the subjunctive mode in action, a retelling of the story of Remus and Romulus — or the founding of Rome — and my very own wolf-inspired short story. We recommend it for Intermediate learners of Italian.
If you like what you hear and would like more information about my short story and the verb tenses I use to tell it (passato prossimo, passato remoto, imperfetto, presente dell’Indicativo, presente del Congiuntivo), leave a comment below or send us your e-mail address to subscribe to our mailing list, where we offer our followers more free content.
If you are not yet familiar with our Idiomthèque webseries, have a look over at our YouTube channel! You’ll find the first episode of season 2 (In bocca al lupo) below.
Buon ascolto, buona visione e a presto!
