Bilingual Children's Stories

Day 150 of My Italian Learning Journal*

As a beginner in learning Italian, I regularly see the need to back up a bit and review what I have previous learned or even forgotten. On youtube.com I came across BookBox.com children's story videos, with subtitles in different languages. I enjoy a good story and why not children stories in the language I'm striving to learn? Below is a sample, a story about Rosa, and elephant that escapes from her zoo, followed by a practice script in Italian. (Grammar corrections are welcome.)

Ascolta Questo:
  • Ho trovato un utile sito web su internet.

  • Una nuova lingua può essere appresa con storie per bambini.
    A new language can be learned with children's stories.
  • Sei d'accordo o in disaccordo?
    Do you agree, or disagree?
Alla prossima!
