  2. Excellent blog for all kind of learner who want to learn Italian...I really enjoyed your blog keep up the good work going.

  3. lesson two could have been a bit slower - the problem is to get the whole alphabet into the time slot allowed by youtube, but this does´t give the learner enough time to repeat. Maybe it could be divided into two parts, a-l and m-z, with more of a pause for repetition after each word ?
