The above links as of this date are/were current. If anyone has any suggestions for any other additional web sites and/or links for reference, please feel free to post your comment and I'll update this blog entry.
Broken links: Since November, 2005, I have written over 300+ blog entries with 1,000's of corresponding links/URLs for Moving2Italy2, covering a varied and wide range of topics. In the event that you come across a broken link or a non-functioning link/URL, please post a comment and report the non-functional link. I wish to thank you in advance for assisting me in the ongoing maintenance and the updating of this successful and informative blog.
Please note: If you want me to reply to your comment or request any further information by email, please include your email address in a separate comment. I will NOT publish any comments with an email address in it.
Several of the above link(s) and the blog postings contains "Sound clips". When you see the words "Sound clip" or the "+" sign, please turn on the speakers on your PC. I have tried to indicate wherever there is an embedded "Sound clip" within these respective listings.
You may wonder why I made comments on some of the above links for Thai, Swedish or some other foreign language. In the Spring, 2005, my wife and I attended a class titled, "Italian for Travelers" at Northern Virginia Community College (NVCC) at the Annandale campus. In this class, there were students from several foreign countries taking this course. I had already started collecting links for Italy and as the class progress, I started another listing for Italian language links. The above list with updates was passed out to my fellow classmates. This class was taught by Sybil Haynes. When Sybil is not teaching, she leads tours to her native Italy. You may read more about these tours at Dolce Vita Adventures.
Please check back for updates because my wife and I will need to further our knowledge of the Italian language before we move there in a few years. Some of the sites mentioned above will lead you to other interesting web sites on Italy.
While most of the above sites are "free", there may be other portions of these sites that are fee based. That is why I stated that the above are suggested reference links to learning the Italian language. You have a choice and many, many options.
That's it for Monday, 5 December 2005: lunedì, 5 dicembre 2005
Today’s quote is an Italian proverb, author unknown.
"A buon intenditor poche parole."
"A good listener needs only few words."
