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 - Rapsodia in Blu
Notes taken on February 3, 2014 by Edward Tanguay
In ogni video di questa serie, sembra che il commissario ha una conversazione arguta e sensuale con una donna attraente. Questo episodio non è stato diverso. Il meglio citazione del commissario in questo video fui la seguente: la artista: "Ogni artista ha i suoi temi preferiti. I miei sono i nudi maschili. Lei per esempio è un suggetto interessante. Ha mai posato come modello in un quadro?" Commissario: "E verrebbe mosso perché io non riesco a stare fermo per più di cinque minuti, Signora."
it happened by chance
he sought me out
I thought so, I thought so...
you know, this painting leads one to imagine...
every artist has their favorite subjects
you, for example, are an interesting subject
for more than five minutes
too bad
go on, let's try
oh, yes, very much
for that evening
it may be embarrassing, but I do have one
sorry for bothering you, but...
I'll come by later
have a good day
I don't know if...
yes, go ahead
so, last week...
don't be late
