Today I have two ‘new’ exercises on conditional forms, and a ‘Book Of The Week’ offer, of which more later. But first, the grammar. The topic is conditionals. Yuk! Part of the problem with studying conditional structures in Italian is the terminology. These two exercises were originally called ‘periodo ipotetico della possibilità’ and ‘periodo ipotetico […]
Three Free A2 (Pre-Intermediate) Level Italian Exercises
Today I have three more ‘reworked’ Italian grammar exercises for you. They’re on different topics, the only connection is the level, which is A2 – pre-intermediate. If you don’t know what that means, or know, but don’t have any idea what YOUR level in Italian is, check out this article I wrote years ago – […]
Direct/Indirect Imperative Exercises

New Italian Easy Reader ‘Colpo di forbici’ Out Today!
Today is the first day back after the holidays. The kids are at home for another ten days, which complicates things, as there are lunches and so on to leave out. And when I finally get to school, there’ll be meetings, deadlines, and a whole lot of catching up to do… Sigh! So, you’ll excuse […]
Possessive Adjectives? Reflexive Verbs??
Learning a foreign language can mean having to get to grips with grammatical terminology. Which can be intimidating, if you’re not familiar with it. For example, today’s two free Italian exercises cover possessive adjectives and reflexive verbs. Possessive adjectives (my, your, his, her, etc.) need to agree with the noun in Italian, rather than with […]

Two Free Italian Exercises On The Imperfect Tense
Today I have two more ‘refurbished’ exercises from my pile of older stuff that needs to be sorted out, this time on the Italian imperfect tense. The imperfect is a really useful little bit of grammar, common in speech as well as text, and easy to learn and remember (it’s the one with a ‘v’ […]

Life’s too short to bother with Italian conditionals
I’m of the firm belief that life’s too short to bother with Italian conditionals. Rather than scratching my head over the grammar, I’ll read something in Italian, while enjoying a cold beer… You won’t, therefore, be surprised to hear that I didn’t do too well on either of today’s two new grammar exercises. Choices, choices. Guess I’ll […]
