nightingale chat

nightingales are singing when you visit Tuscany in May- this is NIIIICE as they are very hard to hear in England any more. So when feeling quite excited about hearing your nightingale and deciding to chat about it with the locals, firstly try and pick someone that looks interested in birds – ie. not the young lady working in the bird museum in San Gimignano, and secondly – I will get to  the point – make sure you pronounce the word for nightingale with the correct stress on the syllables, so you say ‘usignOlo’ NOT ‘uSIGNolo’ – or something like that. Native speakers please feel free to correct me!
