These are notes and flashcards from language learning videos I watch at Yabla. Each video is about 3-5 minutes long, is in full-speed authentic Italian (e.g. from movies, or commercials, or interviews) and below the video is the text in Italian and English. If you click on a word you get the definition. I try to watch one video per day, record useful phrases as flashcards, and then write a little review of it using Google Translate and Linquee. There is also a game at the end of each video where you listen to the video again and have to guess 10 words that are blanked out. A Yabla account costs $10 per month, but if you have the time to watch a video everyday, it is worth it, as your listening comprehension of authentic language will improve greatly.

Il Commissario Manara - 1/6
Notes taken on January 27, 2014 by Edward Tanguay
Il commissario arriva in un albergo. Ma l'addetto alla reception gli dice che non ci sono camere disponibili. Ma quando realizza che è il commissario, lei è eccezionalmente gentile con lui. Poi lei flirta con lui copiosamente, ma rimane naturalmente invariato.
good evening
I can't deny it
oh god!
don't tell me that you are... understand?
What is your name?
ah, sure, yes, it's only that...
but an hour is a long time
I got up early this morning
is there a TV in the room?
it's late
how did the first day go?
except one
and who would that be?
he said more or less the same thing
well anyway, ...
excuse me for disturbing you
however, listen, really...
alright, good night / let's hope so
oh, listen! / what is it? / no, nothing, it's fine
