il colorificio

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the noun il colorificio, which means paint shop. This is the store where you would go to by paint (la vernice). See the noun used below:

Questo fine settimana pittureremo una parete della sala di colore verde. Per questo, ieri, siamo andati al colorificio e abbiamo comprato la vernice.

This weekend we will paint a living room wall green.  We went to the paint shop yesterday and bought paint for this reason.

: Ciao a tutti! I’m taking a course on State and Local Government that is winding down, and I have been working more on updates for the iOS app and am continuing with the work on the Android app (I have not forgotten!). I just wanted to keep everyone updated. I hope to finish before September, but I have another course starting in May that will run through the summer.

: Today, I received the sales numbers for our books. I want to say thank you to everyone who has purchased copies of “Il vero italiano 2“! Sales of the print version last month were the highest ever of any of our three publications, and it also sold well as an ebook/PDF! I also got a lot of feedback on the exercises and how well it functioned both on its own as well as an accompaniment to “Il vero italiano 1“! You can also find all of our publications on and most online booksellers. You can also order our books from brick and mortar locations, too!

: For a limited time, you can get all three of our ebooks (with digital rights management) as PDF’s from our store on Selz for only $9.99!
