Francesca and Mark introduce more -are verbs including some verbs which have spelling changes, and then talk about what they do at the weekend - in Italian, of course! Isla practises what she has learned by talking about her weekend in Italian, and there are some translation challenges to help you consolidate the new language in the lesson.

Inizieremo, parlando del video, pubblicato domenica sui social da Arnold Schwarzenegger, in cui l’ex governatore della California condanna con forza l’attacco al Campidoglio. Subito dopo, discuteremo della decisione di molte aziende americane di cancellare le donazioni politiche, dopo l’assedio del Campidoglio. Poi, vi racconteremo di come la genetica sia ora in grado di offrire nuove spiegazioni sulle differenze fisiche e comportamentali dei gemelli identici.

Poi, vi racconteremo di una trasmissione russa che, in occasione del Capodanno, si è presa gioco degli stereotipi della tv italiana commerciale degli anni Ottanta. - Arnold Schwarzenegger reagisce all’assalto al Campidoglio del 6 gennaio - Molte aziende statunitensi cancellano le donazioni politiche, dopo l’assalto al Campidoglio - La genetica offre nuove spiegazioni delle differenze fisiche e comportamentali tra gemelli identici - La guerra dei sandwich al pollo si accende in tutto il mondo - La controversa serie televisiva di Netflix dedicata alla comunità di San Patrignano - “Ciao 2020”, la tv russa celebra il Capodanno con una parodia dell’Italia anni ‘80
