  1. Molte grazie ! Questa idea e stupenda! Il modo piu divertente di imparare l’italiano!
    Grazie ancora una volta! 🙂

  2. Bella idea. A mio marito e Io ci piace molto cantare. Bravissimo. Aspettiamo la prossima canzone
    Grazie mille

  3.  Fantastic idea. Ever since your lesson about Andrea Bocelli, I have been listening to his songs and finding translated lyrics on the web. An extremely effective way of expanding vocabulary, and discovering some wonderful new songs. Grazie mille. Diolch yn fawr.

    Ps “Time to say goodbye” is a classic.

  4. Amo troppo questa idea. Mi hanno insegnato mia classe elementare, (Year 6) questa canzone e Mambo Italiano e That’s Amore per gli ultimi tre anni, con un CD di Dean Martin. I studenti amano tutti. Sarò in attesa di vedere che cosa avete.. Molte grazie,

  5. How do the doubled adjectives work? I’ve run across them before (I’m slowly reading “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” in Italian) and took it to mean an intensification of the adjective. Is that correct?

    Also, may I suggest “Lasciatemi Cantare” by Toto which I adored from the first hearing.


  6.  Ah to think think this all started with Jane vocalizing the title from Strani Amori from the At the Concert episode. I believe I sent an email to you when I first heard it. Ever since that episode, I have become a major Laura Pausini fan, and listening to her songs has brought much joy (and joyful, easeful learning!) to my life. Then, from Laura, I discovered Tiziano Ferro, Nek, and Vasco Rossi. Classics like Return to Sorrento could introduce Neopolitan dialect.
    And thank you for the bonus VIP “How Would You Say It” re: phrases helpful at an airport.
    I’ll be en route to Malpensa airport in Milan tomorrow!!!!!!
    A Presto, Rosemarie

  7. Thank you so much! This is the greatest idea ever! I’m from Russia and italian music has always been very popular here. I’m very exited that I’ll now learn all these songs! I love Italian classical music as well as popular!

    Could you please release a list of songs you are planning to discuss?!  

  8.  Hi,

    Early on in the dialogue for the ‘Volare’ Canta che ti passa, Jean says something like “Non potresta di meglio” I couldn’t be better.
    Please could you let me know exactly what she says and what tense of the verb Potere she is using.
    Many Thanks,
