Supporting “The World Speaks!”

Recently, I announced that I am publishing my language guides on Amazon, with 25% of the proceeds going to the Akshayapatra Foundation, which sponsors school lunches for underprivileged students in India. This prevents children from dropping out of school early in order to make money for their families, and makes sure that they don’t go hungry.

I’ve decide that I’m going to put the guides back up for download for free. But, as I continue to publish material, I ask that you please purchase the guides from Amazon, not only to donate to Akshayapatra, but also to fund this project. The money helps support the site, as well makes sure that you all have access to more language-related content. I write these guides completely on my own, and I do my own research to bring the content to you. Also, I’m going to be university student soon, and that will take up more of my time. Please be patient with the production of new guides; I’m doing the best I can.

I hope you enjoy using this site to further your own language learning goals, and please buy the guides, either physical or Kindle copies, to support The World Speaks! and the Akshayapatra Foundation!

Scoprendo L’italiano! is now free!

Yesterday, I decided to take Scoprendo l’italiano: An Accessible Guide to Learning Italian off of Amazon and Createspace. It’s not so much that it didn’t sell, so that I could give the money to Akshayapatra, but rather that it didn’t really matter to me whether it sold or not, because I already donate with my own money anyway.

So, in the future, I will not be putting up books for sale, and instead will be making them available for download for free on a page called, “Language Guides,” on this blog. By doing so, I can update the file at my leisure if I feel there was something I missed in the document. I hope you all can use the book to learn Italian effectively!

Eventually, I will be posting the documents I made for Hindi and Korean, once I’m able to polish them up in formatting, write exercises and activities, and add cultural notes. There probably won’t be any photographs in the Korean document, as I won’t be going to Korea any time soon, although I have a great number of photos in India for Hindi. Please look forward to it!

Scoprendo l’italiano! for Amazon Prime Members and the Akshaypatra Foundation

Amazon Prime Members receive a 14% discount on the Print Edition of the book, and can borrow the Kindle Edition for free with the Kindle Owner’s Lending Library. Remember, if you choose to purchase either version, the proceeds go toward the Akshaypatra Foundation, which sponsors  school lunches for underprivileged children in India, who cannot afford to be fed daily, and therefore are discouraged from going to school. If you want to learn more, go to the Akshaypatra Foundation’s website. It’s only 750 rupees to feed one child for a whole year. That’s only a little more than 12 cents. If not to learn Italian (which I highly recommend), purchase it to help the children, and maybe donate your copy to a local library.

Here’s a promotional discount code (that only works if you buy from Createspace) that should work: LZDAWJA2.

Updates on Scoprendo l’italiano! (Part 2) and Other News

Scoprendo l’italiano is now available in print on Createspace and Amazon for $43.78! A bit pricy for the first release, but I will be releasing a discount code in the somewhat near future.

In other news, I’ve begun work on Hindi Sikho!, a Hindi counterpart to Italian, with help from my parents, both of whom are much more accomplished speakers than I am. You should most likely expect to see it available in early to mid-March. I hope you guys purchase my book on the Kindle Store or a print version, if you prefer. 

Updates on Scoprendo l’italiano!

So, firstly, I’ve completely revamped the setup of the book on the Kindle, and I’ve also made significant progress in getting a print version made available on Createspace, so hopefully, you’ll purchase one of the two. I definitely hope you enjoy learning Italian from it, as there are many beautiful, high quality photographs, and integrated exercises for practicing concepts.

As for the Kindle, however, the formats seems a little off, and I’ll need to get to learn how to fix that, but you’ll have to live with it for now, if you have a copy. It should still be pretty usable. And even better, it’s been discounted to $3.99!
