a forma di

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the prepositional phrase (la locuzione preposizionalea forma di, which means in the shape of or in the form of.

Remember that with le locuzoni preposizionali, you generally need a preposition at the beginning and at the end (although there might be an exception or two):

See the phrase used below:

Da bambina Martina andava al parco e si sdraiava sul prato a osservare le nuvole. La divertivano quelle a forma di animale, più di tutte.

As a young girl, Martina used to go to the park and lie down on the grass to watch the clouds. Those in the shape of an animal would amuse her more than anything.

Calendar Update!

Hi everyone! Calendars are being printed as we speak, but I am still missing a few of mailing addresses. Please check your email and get back to me when you can!

A few people emailed me last week and over the weekend looking for calendar updates, and the missing address was the reason that calendars were not sent out. If you have contacted me with your address in the last week, I have given your address to the printer, and your calendar has been sent or will be sent out this week.

I still have not received email responses from small group of people who donated in early December whose addresses were not sent over by PayPal. Please contact me as soon as you can!

I’m really excited and impressed by all the feedback I have received on the calendars thus far! If you would still like a calendar, donations will be accepted up until January 31, 2017. A donation of $20 or more entitles you to a free calendar and a free copy of our upcoming e-book and exercise guide on prepositions! Visit paroladelgiorno.com and click the “Donate” button on our web page!

I appreciate all the generosity! I’ll send out an additional thank you note at the end of the month to everyone who donated.
