    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.

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.

    Lesson #090, Friday

    Lesson #090, Friday

    Adjectives are words which modify or describe nouns. Since they tell us about a noun, they must agree in number and gender with the noun they are describing.
    Numbers and adjectives which tell how many, precede the nouns they modify:
    tre arance = three oranges
    molti libri = many books
    troppo rumore = too much noise
    Adjectives of color always follow the nouns they modify:
    una casa rossa = a red house
    una penna gialla = a yellow pen
    Most other adjectives will follow the nouns they modify, but you will learn through conversation that some are flexible and may come either before or after the noun:
    una donna intelligente = an intelligent woman
    un uomo gentile = a kind man
    Adjectives ending in 'o' agree in both number and gender with the noun they modify. Adjectives ending in 'e' only agree in number:
    ragazzo alto = tall boy
    ragazzi alti = tall boys
    ragazza alta = tall girl
    ragazze alte = tall girls
    uomo forte = strong man
    uomini forti = strong men
    donna forte = strong woman
    donne forti = strong women
