  1. I like pasta al dente, too! 🙂 Great episode. I’ve enjoyed Jane’s explanation of nouns ending in ‘e’. So, basically, they need to be memorized, right? — Keep up the good work!

  2. Great Lesson, great explanations. I look forward to your podcast every week, I’m learning so much for only a few dollars a month. Keep it up, Jane and Massino!
