Hi everybody, my name's Mike and this is the Let's Speak Italian podcast. So you've listened to a few sample lessons, and hopefully you're learning how to speak Italian.

Well with the first 100 lessons completed, I wanted to release the first few lessons for free as a little teaser so that you can see just how easy it is to learn to speak Italian. Now, by going to the website, you can buy the first 100 lessons for only $15.00. That includes 100 lessons, plus 20 review lessons as well, for a total of 120 lessons in all. That's 24 weeks of lessons, for only $15.00.  It's over 13 hours of Italian lessons, for the price of what you might pay for one music CD.

I've found that the key to learning to speak Italian is to learn a little bit every day, and to practice it with your friends. So get lessons 1-100, and listen to one lesson, every day for 24 weeks. By the end, you'll be amazed at how easy it was, and just how much you can learn by practicing a few minutes every day.

To buy the first 100 lessons, just go to the web site at www.letsspeakitalian.net and click on one of the banner ads. If you want to Download Lessons 1-100, click on the 'Download' banner ad. Once I get your payment, I'll e-mail you a link to the files. Be patient though, it might take a few hours before I check my email.  If you would rather Get Lessons 1-100 on CD-Rom, click on the 'CD' banner ad and once I receive your payment, I'll mail the CD-Rom to you.  For only $15.00 you'll be speaking Italian before you know it.

Grazie tanto, arrivederci.

capire = to understand

finire = to finish, to end

preferire = to prefer

To conjugate these types of verbs, you will drop the 'ire' and:

io = add 'isco'

tu = add 'isci'

Lei/lui/lei = add 'isce'

noi = add 'iamo'

voi = add 'ite'

loro = add 'iscono'

Then to conjugate the verb 'capire':

io capisco

tu capisci

Lei/lui/lei capisce

noi capiamo

voi capite

loro capiscono

Il ragazzo capisce la linga l'italiana. = The boy understands the Italian language.

Noi preferiamo dormire. = We prefer to sleep.

Tu preferisci mangiare? = Do you prefer to eat?

Io finisco il discorso. = I finish the speech.
