Today’s free online Italian lesson covers ‘linkers’, that is to say conjunctions, adverbs and so on which have the function of linking two phrases. For example:
“I love you because you tolerate my snoring.”
Needless to say, there are a whole bag of these to get to grips with.
But don’t be put off just because this lesson is in the B2 (upper-intermediate) section of our free course…
You can study linkers no matter what your current level in Italian is, and it’s definitely worth doing so.
Having a good grasp of linkers will really help your reading and listening comprehension as well as making it easier to express your ideas when you speak or write Italian.
Below is the link to today’s lesson. But before you click it, read on for an exciting video!
