Sento spesso dire "l'inglese è facile" , "lo capisco abbastanza bene". Ne sei sicuro? New York, che pullula di italiani, è un ottimo terreno di prova: in una città che va veloce, anche le parole corrono veloci e se non capisci alla prima, certo, sono gentili e te lo ridicono, ma forse anche no; ho avuto modo di osservare le espressioni disperate di connazionali che tentavano di capire cosa stesse loro chiedendo l'agente della dogana o, per restare "in casa", la faccia attonita di mio marito che, di ritorno dalla cassa di Shake Shack, mi mostra il panino e un bicchiere vuoto dicendomi "boh, mica ho capito cosa fare per il bere, andava a tremila all'ora e c' era un casino in sottofondo". Esattamente: nella vita reale non è come al dettato a scuola, nella vita reale chi ti parla lo fa magari nel traffico, in un locale affollato, con l'ambulanza che passa.
Per questo preferisco, nelle mie lezioni, dare la priorità alla parola parlata, ai filmati su youtube, alla conversazione: per abituarsi al suono delle parole, alla cadenza, alle abitudini fonetiche, in modo tale da potersela cavare nelle situazioni più comuni del vivere quotidiano.
Tu sai come funziona da Shake Shack?😉

The Liberation of Paris (also known as the Battle for Paris) was a military battle that took place during World War II from August 19, 1944 until the German garrison surrendered the French capital on August 25, 1944. Paris had been ruled by Nazi Germany since the signing of the Second Compiègne Armistice on June 22, 1940, after which the Wehrmacht occupied northern and western France.The liberation began when the French Forces of the Interior —the military structure of the French Resistance—staged an uprising against the German garrison upon the approach of the US Third Army, led by General George Patton. On the night of August 24, elements of General Philippe Leclerc's 2nd French Armored Division made its way into Paris and arrived at the Hôtel de Ville shortly before midnight. The next morning, August 25, the bulk of the 2nd Armored Division and US 4th Infantry Division entered the city. Dietrich von Choltitz, commander of the German garrison and the military governor of Paris, surrendered to the French at the Hôtel Meurice, the newly established French headquarters, while General Charles de Gaulle arrived to assume control of the city as head of the Provisional Government of the French Republic. ------------------------------------------------

Facebook’s Crypto Libra & Corporate Blockchains. Facebook announced today its ambitious Libra cryptocurrency project and published a whitepaper outlining Libra’s problem statement and coin structure. The Libra is designed to be a global stablecoin , which will enable easy and low-cost money transfer worldwide.
According to Libra’s whitepaper, “The world truly needs a reliable digital currency and infrastructure that together can deliver on the promise of ‘the internet of money.” This ambitious project is an excellent advancement for humanity, which, according to Libra’s whitepaper, will help provide 1.7 billion adults who are left outside of the traditional banking system to gain access to financial services and cheap capital. This will also lower global transaction costs and will ease commerce around the world.
I’m here to claim that Libra can do much more. In the long-run, this financial arrangement, which can develop into much more than a ‘mean of payment,’ will have the ability to remove nations’ power over currencies and money supply, as well as strip central banks of their monetary policy tools.
Commemorative plaque of Radio Londres in the cemetery of Asnelles, Calvados.
Radio Londres (French for "Radio London") was a radio station broadcast from 1940 to 1944 by the BBC in London to Nazi-occupied France. It was entirely in French and was operated by the Free French who had escaped from occupied France. It served not only to counter the propaganda broadcasts of German-controlled Radio Paris and the Vichy government's Radiodiffusion Nationale, but also to appeal to the French to rise up, as well as being used to send coded messages to the French Resistance.
In 1940 the BBC opened its studio to the first members of the resistance who fled France's occupation by Germany. Radio Londres was born and would become the daily appointment of the French people for four years. It opened its transmission with: "Ici Londres ! Les Français parlent aux Français..." (This is London! The French-speaking to the French...), now a very famous quote in France. It was the voice of Free French Forces under Charles de Gaulle who, on 18 June 1940, made his famous Appeal of 18 June, inviting his compatriots to resist and rise against the occupation.
Shortly before the D-Day landings of 6 June 1944 Radio Londres broadcast the first stanza of Paul Verlaine's poem "Chanson d'automne" to let the resistance know that the invasion would begin within 24 hours.
By late of 1944, Allied victory in France sounded the end of Radio Londres.

“A man needs to travel. On his own, not through stories, images, books or TV. Needs to travel by himself, with his own eyes and feet, to understand what belongs to him. To some day plant his own trees and give them value. Experience the cold to enjoy the heat. And the opposite. Experience the distance and the lack of shelter to be able to feel good under your own's. A man needs to travel to places he has never been to, to be able to bend this arrogance which makes us see the world the way we wonder, and not simply the way it is or could be. That makes us teachers and doctors of what we have never seen, when we should be just learners, and simply go see it." 🌎
“Um homem precisa viajar. Por sua conta, não por meio de histórias, imagens, livros ou TV. Precisa viajar por si, com seus olhos e pés, para entender o que é seu. Para um dia plantar as suas árvores e dar-lhes valor. Conhecer o frio para desfrutar o calor. E o oposto. Sentir a distância e o desabrigo para estar bem sob o próprio teto. Um homem precisa viajar para lugares que não conhece para quebrar essa arrogância que nos faz ver o mundo como o imaginamos, e não simplesmente como é ou pode ser; que nos faz professores e doutores do que não vimos, quando deveríamos ser alunos, e simplesmente ir ver”.
