Italian Calendar

Every morning my husband I read the day’s phrase or cultural tidbit on our Living Language’s Italian2013 Day-to-Day Calendar. The calendar is clear and offers pronunciation help, too.

It isn’t easy to teach your partner Italian, or well, anything. The dynamic changes and not in a good way. With the calendar, we can discuss vocabulary and grammar without hierarchical, didactic lessons. Plus, it’s fun. (Well, at least on the days when we’ve had enough coffee before we flip the calendar page.)
