Learning Italian through translation
I created a new blog about Italian language learning for English speakers a couple of weeks ago. Basically the main purpose of the blog is to provide an Italian translation of English articles I found particularly interesting.
You'll also find a link to the original article, the name of the author etc. It is meant to be a free resource for language learners and teachers.
In order to improve your Italian you could try to translate the original article into Italian and then compare it with my "native translation".
Also, you can leave a comment for any kind of question (maybe you don't agree with a particular translation or you don't understand why I decided to use a word instead of another). You could also suggest an article to translate. Feel free to comment in Italian or English.
Since I work as a professional translator it's also a way of promoting my services (let's be honest).
I know that Duolingo is already doing an amazing job with translations, but this is is meant to be an additional resource.
As a language learner I've found translations to be one of the best ways of improviding one's written proficiency.
Come visit the website and keep in mind that it's still in a "beta phase".
Anyway, have fun on Duolingo!
This looks great, but just to let you know when I click on the link to the original article you posted today, it takes me to the wrong article. Keep up the good work!
Non riesco vederlo oggi... dice che non funziona. E' normale? Grazie.
Grazie per il link! Cercavo oggi un sito per leggere diversi tipi di articoli e per caso trovo il tuo! Mi sembra anche che sia esattamente cio che mi piace leggere. Thanks, I'll bookmark that.
