There’s a program on TV called L’Eredità – Inheritance where seven players compete against each other in a number of trivia quizzes that test their knowledge on various topics. The last one standing wins the inheritance in a guillotine style final word game … that I’ve guessed correctly, just once.
There’s a gregarious host that is personable and oftentimes funny, and no Italian TV program would be without dancing girls (except … this year they have a male dancer, only took about ten years) that reveal answers to the word games.
When I first moved to Sardinia, and could only say ciao, pasta, pizza, and vino; I found the show to be a great resource for learning Italian. I could follow along and learn new words and random facts, it helped my Italian vocabulary grow. Each trivia question is displayed on the screen making it easy to follow along at home.
It’s still a great resource for me to learning this language I’ve come to love, even after ten years of tuning in.
I tune in nightly, do you?
