Narrator Opening

Buongiorno, cari amici! Come state? Did you miss me? Did you miss our show? Well, as you know, Connor is leaving for Italy in a few weeks. And he’s absolutely head over heels about making this trip! Although, as he points out to Silvia, this won’t be his first time visiting Italy. As a kid, he used to travel to Sicily with nonno Giovanni and nonna Carmela. And he retains fond memories of those childhood trips.

I know, what’s not to like about this beautiful Mediterranean island? Sicily boasts a wonderful climate, a richly eclectic culinary tradition, stunning beaches and a bewitching mix of majestic Greek temples and baroque architecture.

Well, cari ascoltatori, I hope you took the time to study our new grammar lesson. Today we’ll focus on the passato prossimo, which is a compound past tense used to describe a completed action that took place in the past. We will also explore a number of very useful time adverbs, such as oggi, ieri and domani.

Amici, I’m sure you’re looking forward to hearing more of Connor’s stories, so I won’t keep you waiting. Let’s welcome our favorite teacher Silvia and her very talented student, Connor!
