Tutti Matti per l'Italiano!


In today’s podcast we are talking about "la leggenda del ponte del diavolo" (the legend of The Devil’s Bridge)…or how to trick the devil and make him madder than Hell! My special guest in this episode is Daniela Bonaccorsi, one of the head teachers at Lucca Italian School. Recently I recorded Daniela as she told the story about the famous “Devil’s bridge” that crosses the River Serchio just north of the city of Lucca. This is a wonderful opportunity to listen to Daniela’s Tuscan accent and hear her version of this famous story.

In this podcast I will be talking about AFS Cultural Exchange Program. Here in America we are at the end of the American school term and summer vacation has begun. Normally this is a thing to celebrate...but for some it is a sad moment too as this year’s 2014/2015 AFS class returns to their home countries. In the podcast you will hear from two Italian girls who participated on the AFS program in the U.S Both girls will make a presentation and you will have the opportunity to hear their different voices and accents - one from the south of Italy and one from the north. You will also learn more about the AFS program and how you too can host an exchange student!
