A 6.2M earthquake caused significant damage in central Italy. So far more than 290 people have been killed and the town of Amatrice is in ruins. Survivors need access to emergency supplies. Here at Radio Lingua we’ve been trying to come up with a way in which we can help.
For many visitors to Italy and lovers of Italian food, the signature dish of the region affected by the earthquake is very well known. Indeed, we’ve spoken about Spaghetti all’Amatriciana several times on the show. We’ve put together a mini-course featuring a recipe card in Italian with some vocabulary help, and Mark and Francesca have recorded a quick video episode helping you to understand the recipe.
100% of the proceeds of this course will be donated to the Global Giving Italy Earthquake Relief Fund. More details of this fund are available here. Given the nature of the situation, we have to put a time limit on the sales of this course, and we will confirm the full amount donated by the Coffee Break Italian community through this mini-course in a future newsletter and on our Facebook page.
In order to put this course together as quickly as possible, we’re using our new Coffee Break Academy site. This means that if you decide to purchase the course, you’ll need to create a new account. You can use the same details as your normal Coffee Break Italian account, but you will have to create a new account in order to buy this mini-course. (If you’ve already signed up to either the Coffee Break French or Spanish Masterclass, you’ll already have an Academy account).
