Learning Italian: Why would any English speaker in Rome look on the Internet for Italian language-study resources? Well maybe because that's where they are. You don't have to spend a lot of time searching for things either -- that part is already done. Go to http://www.mmdtkw.org/itlrnres.html.

Get extra practice.  Read the Italian media (newspapers, magazines, radio and TV transcripts, archeological news, government statistics) or listen to Neapolitan canzone, or find any Italian Internet site.  Go to http://www.mmdtkw.org/Italinks.html.

PS: 1. Everybody's favorite canzone is at http://medivia.sele.it/italiano/canzoni/oimari.htm.

2. Don't let the kids see the Alternative Italian Dictionary at http://www.notam.uio.no/~hcholm/altlang/ht/Italian.html
