Apologies for the terrible sound in the first seven of the ‘La grammatica ascoltata’ series.
Many thanks also to the few of you who tried to tell us we were embarrassing ourselves… Sorry we didn’t listen.
Anyway, we’ve now fixed it, I hope, so if you were frustrated at not being able to hear the tracks, do try again.
Here’s a link to the A1 tense material in the ‘La grammatica ascoltata’ series.
But today, onwards and upwards to the A2 material!
We begin with a really useful, and easy-to-learn Italian tense: the imperfetto (imperfect).
Basically that’s the Italian equivalent of ‘I was doing that’ or ‘I used to do that’, so massively helpful for talking about the past.
And all you need to form the tense is a fairly regular suffix with a ‘v’ in it.
Personally, I find ‘v’s very easy to remember…
So, whether you’ve already studied the imperfetto (and want to revise it), or haven’t got to it yet but would like to give it a go, click here for today’s task.
You can see what’s coming over the next couple of weeks on our A2 – Pre-intermediate page.
Or head back to the A1 – Beginners page to ruin your hearing with the new, high-volume elementary level tracks!
Remember I mentioned that we have two new audio-books on the way?
We have one text finished which now needs its cover design and audio recording. It’s a romance, set in Bologna (where else?), and the level is A1/A2.
The other is also A1/A2, and is now at the final stages of editing – the comprehension exercises and glossaries are being added as you read this.
Hopefully they’ll both be ready for release at then end of the current ‘La grammatica ascoltata’ A2 tenses material.
Naturally, there’ll be a free sample chapter, and a special launch price.
But if you can’t wait two weeks, head over to our shop to see what else might help you with your Italian…
