scendere

Ciao a tutti! Yesterday we reached our goal and raised almost $2600 just through PayPal alone! Another $500+ was raised from the checks that were sent and some have yet to arrive! Thank you so much for all the contributions. Progress is commencing on our thank you gift — our ebook — that every person who donated will receive. 

I will keep the fundraising going until July 1st! If you haven’t donated, please consider a small donation to support PdG

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the verb, scendere (da), which means to get off (a form of transport), such as a bus or a train but to get out of a car. See the verb used below in its context:

Quando vedo una donna con il passeggino sul bus chiedo sempre se ha bisogno di una mano per scendere dal bus.

When I  see a woman with a stroller on the bus, I always ask if she needs a hand getting off the bus.
