Gesticuli' gesticula'

We italians are definitely famous for the way we use non-verbal language: lot of gestures which are totally part of our daily routine but to a foreign person probably seem really weird and mysterious. Here's a video form the American Consulate in Milan showing you some of  the most well known ones.

Sognando Primavera

Lovely lesson last night, we talked about food (ate some too!) and ended with me singing this traditional italian song L'inverno e' passato  that tells about winter having past, april too, may is back with the cucu singing

It's really easy, if you want to try it yourself here's the text:
l'inverno e' passato
l'aprile non c'e' piu' 
e' ritornato il maggio al canto del cucu'
