Italian Reading Practice – Il lungo viaggio
Posted On June 12, 2018
Another text in my Italian Reading Practice journey is the appropriately named Il lungo viaggio by Leonardo Sciascia. Unlike Alice in Wonderland (a reading endeavour that I talked about in a previous post), Il lungo viaggio is a short story that I have not read before in English and therefore will present different challenges.
You may be wondering why I am not focusing on one text at a time, that’s understandable, and you may also argue that I would get more out of it if I did just that. For some people this may be the case – I am not one of them. I have been studying languages for many years and over this time have been able to figure out what works for me and what doesn’t and I’ve personally found that having a large range of ‘study options’ leads to me being more motivated.
With this in mind, you will see a number of posts where I introduce the texts I am reading. I hope to add some non-fiction works to this list soon.
Once again, any questions/queries let me know!
