Is 7 seasons enough? I loved the Mentalist in Italian.


Unable to use VPN with Amazon prime. Do they have the DVD in italiano?

Maybe I can open an amazone.it account and order it?

There surely are DVDs, but I have no clue.

I will look into it.

I was not able to find it in Italian. However, I purchased a several series form Amazon.It as well as a couple easy readers. Just getting ready for a French redo in il italiano!

For Amazon Prime here in Djibouti, I pause my VPN, reload the Amazon Prime page, start the movie or show, then when the VPN comes back on, the film still plays.

Maybe that'll work? If you're ok with your VPN being off for a minute or two?

You're not a C1 (or B1 or whatever) if you haven't tested.

Hi all,

Does anyone have any italian anki decks or any Subs2srs anki decks available?

Trying to make my own but the software just isn't working for me and i'm not tech savvy at all.

You can download premade decks from the ankiweb site. Just search the premade decks for Italian.

For subs2srs I made a 5 part series on how to do it.

Hey! I was actually just watching your videos! I've tried with 7 different movies/episodes and it hasn't worked once, it just doesn't format on my anki.

I looked on shared decks for any Subs2SRS but couldn't find any.

Back to the drawing board I guess. Thanks for taking the time to create the videos, they're really helpful even for someone as old as me!

Hi,

I don't study Italian, but I recently started working with an anki deck for Spanish verbs. The creator of that deck actually made an Italian one first. It's only verbs, but it's pretty much ALL the verb forms. The link for the Italian deck is here:
https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/1891639832

He describes how he made the deck, why he suggests front-loading all the verb forms, and how he designed the prompts here:
http://www.asiteaboutnothing.net/w_ital ... cards.html

This may not be what you are looking for at this point in your studies. I'm impressed by the design, but I'm only a week in. He also has an interesting comparison of the relative difficulties of Italian and Spanish from the point of view of an English speaker:

Hope you find some useful materials somewhere!
