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.

Commissario Manara: Rapsodia in Blu 3
Notes taken on February 9, 2014 by Edward Tanguay
Il commissario interrotto una band che suona. Dovrebbero practicare una marcia funebre, ma giacono Rapsodia in blu. Poi il commissario chiede il parlare con un membro della band. Quando si parla di sua moglie, l'uomo diventa violento.
