  1. This was one of your very best lessons – I especially appreciated the review and drill of the verb mettere – I hope you will work more verb reviews into future lessons

  2. Ma e’ vero che si dice “biro” per penna? Lo vedo sui libri di grammatica ma non lo sento mai. Maybe because I’m not in an elementary school environment. Please explain. Anche “cestino per la merenda”. Never heard anyone say it. Matter of fact is this a new thing, the “lunchbox” for Italians?
