I received an e-mail today from a fellow travel writer who is looking for someone who doesn’t currently speak Italian but would like to begin learning. Perhaps in preparation for a summer trip?
She would like that person to try a particular brand of books and tapes (she will be provide them and you are free to keep them as compensation) and report back to her in about 30 days with his/her impressions.
Sounds like a good deal to me! (UPDATE: We have enough volunteers! Thanks for your enthusiasm!)
