Lighthouses


Day 192 of My Italian Learning Journal*
_____________________

In a few previous posts, I have mentioned that I live on the coast of Texas and have the good fortune to be near a large body of water, the Gulf of Mexico. I have often wondered what it would be like to live in a lighthouse. This evening I was surfing the Internet looking at some of the lighthouses in Texas and then discovered a website that catalogs lighthouses in the United States and Canada. The website has a wealth of beautiful photographs, directions, histories, and GPS coordinates. I also looked for lighthouses in Italy and found a good listing on Wikipedia. Click the links below to access the two websites. (Italian grammar corrections for the practice script below are welcome.)

Ascolta Questo:
  • Penso che i fari siano interessanti.
    I think lighthouses are interesting.
  • Mi chiedo se mi piacerebbe vivere in un faro.
    I wonder if I wouldlike to live in a lighthouse.
  • Il Faro di Alessandria fu il primo faro del mondo e la costruzione iniziĆ² nel 290 a.C.
    The Lighthouse of Alexandria was the first lighthouse in the world, and the construction began in 290 BC.
  • Giulio Cesare menziona il Faro di Alessandria nei suoi scritti.
    Julius Caesar mentions the Lighthouse of Alexandria in his writings.
