Word for the Travel Wise (12/22/06)

It doesn’t surprise me a whole lot that About.com also has a word of the day feature for foreign languages, but what was does surprise is how long it took me to stumble upon their cool little lessons. After thumbing through some of the archives I decided to borrow this word from their teachings to pass on to you guys here. Go check out their feature.

Today’s word is an Italian word used in Italy:

mondo – world, humanity, mankind

Seeing how popular the language is there isn’t much difficulty finding learning resources on the web. I’m a little unsure about what’s going on with this June29 site, but they have three very simple lessons to get your learning motors going. You might find the BBC your one stop shop in handling your needs. Dictionaries, lessons, audio, and slang are all included. Distance learning is always recommended in my book. Check out some of these programs abroad where you can study in various cities across the country and even Lugano, Switzerland. A few links to study abroad are as follows: Amerispan, World Link Education, and ILUSS. Head over to this Italian Book Store for suggested text.
