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 - Vendemmia tardiva
Notes taken on January 30, 2014 by Edward Tanguay
In questo episodio, il commissario sta studiando un incidente con suoi colleghi. Come è tipico di lui, riesce a flirtare con due donne in una scena. Mi è piaciuto anche vedere la costa italiana con il mare sullo sfondo.
