Ciao a tutti,
This weeks OPP is brought to you by the Itchy Quill blog. Right about the time I was looking into free language learning applications, this post showed up in my inbox. Lucky me, IQ had already done a bunch on exploring and posted it for us all to read. (Grazie, Itchy Quill!)

Arrivederci, my friends.
For those of you that are new around here, OPP stands for Other Peoples Projects. Be sure to check out some of the past week’s OPP’s while you visit.

It used to feel like they were trying to make me feel bad about this imaginary expensive world we lived in, and yet now I find myself thinking the same thing. The same chocolate bars now cost double the price. The horror!
Just because things may be expensive, doesn’t mean there aren’t still deals available however. The internet is…
