About

When I started this blog I was just trying to share the contents of my lectures. I am teaching a course called  “Words & Music” at the University of the Third Age of my small Italian town, with the aim of letting people enjoy a little English in a cheerful way. The blog was intended as a way to reach those who had been unable to attend the course: you know, we are still young, but only at heart!

Then I began to enjoy it … and here I am!

      In reciprocating the spirit of your blog and resonating with the aim of your course, it is with great pleasure that I offer you my special post containing plenty of “Words & Music” to share with the students in your lectures.

      1. Italian songs were very popular in the 60’s and my parents had many records. 🙂
        Una lacrima sul viso is one I remember. (I think that’s where I picked my poor Italian. Out of old records…) Non ho l’etta. Sometimes I think about poor Gigliola. The only song she can only perform in public! I will look up Mina and Alberto Lupo. I don’t “situate” them. Buona sera.

      2. I don’t “remember” them. Think sixties, in Africa, no TV. Just records. 🙂 (And I now realize it’s a Bossa Nova!) Or maybe I remember Dalida’s version? Mina had a wonderful voice.
        The 60’s (and 70’s) were an incredible time of exchange between Italy and France. Actors, directors, singers, movies, songs crossed the border back and forth. I wonder why that stopped.
        Ciao ciao

  1. Ho cominciato a leggere il tuo blog, ma ci vuole molta calma per assorbire le tue parole. Quanto sono vere e in quanti tuoi articoli mi ritrovo, Sembra che tu stia scrivendo per me, così mi aiuti a capire meglio certe situazioni che sto vivendo. Grazie.

      1. Hi Luisa – I am always sort of mystified by how to set up my blog the best way — because it looks different depending on what device one reads it from. On my ipad, using the worpress reader, the translate widget doesn’t show at all. From my desktop, I see it all the way at the bottom – just a suggestion, but why not put it at the very top? Either way, wishing you the best, that it entices many more folks to stop by & read your lovely posts ❤

      1. Yes, and there are so many beautiful little town in Itay and great food, but I find that not many people speak English. I am optimistic leaning the language, since I already speak French and Spanish. Hope to take a two-week course in Italy next spring.

      2. You’re right, in Italy not many people speak English, but I can assure you that they do everything to understand a foreigner and make themselves understood.
        Furthermore, if you already know Spanish, it will be easier for you to learn Italian

  3. Spero mi perdonerai se ti scrivo in italiano ^_^
    Bella la tua iniziativa, insegnare penso che sia una nobile professione, ma anche molto difficile e impegnativa e voler raggiungere, tramite la tecnologia, tante persone per espandere il proprio cerchio di influenza, è lodevole, complimenti ❤
