LearnItalianPodLearn Italian with LearnItalianPod. Longtime VIP Member Patricia from Boston sent us a terrific email. She writes: “One of the fondest memories I have of my recent trip to Italy is the discovery of some great Italian tales written by an ancient author called Fedro. It all happened one night, by absolute chance, as I heard my Italian friend Luisa reading two fables to her children, before they went to sleep. Such a fascinating moment… and a great idea for a Culture Shot, right Jane & Massimo?”

Absolutely, Patricia! So, let’s feature a terrific, super famous, ancient Italian tale: “La Volpe e Il Corvo” (The Fox and the Crow). On the grammar section, we’ll be reviewing the hypothetical constructions, and we’ll learn and practice some more useful Italian sentences. Enjoy!

Nice one, Jane & Massimo. I especially loved Jane’s way of telling the story, and practicing this episode with the PDF really makes a difference.

Antony Says:

Il famoso favolista Jean de la Fontaine disse “l’estrema eleganza e la brevita’ di Fedro sono impossibili da imitarsi”.

Ken Says:

 Che bella favola! Mi pianciono molto le parole della favola. There is such a musical sound to this particular fable. It is fun just to read it.
