Today’s free Italian lesson covers the final subjunctive tense, the subjunctive past perfect.
It’s not a hard one, and there’s an audio and one simple exercise to help you get a feel for it.
Thereafter, proceed with care: the remaining exercises cover a variety of subjunctive tenses, not just today’s new one.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you… That sort of thing is ideal if you’re revising or are anyway strong at grammar. Just what the doctor ordered, for ‘grammar fiends’.
But if you’re a ‘grammar denier’ like me, just skip them. Life’s too short. Go read or listen to something in Italian instead.
The links you need to get started are at the bottom of the page, but before you click away I want to mention this week’s promotion, a 20% discount on any/all of our ebooks!
To take advantage you need to copy/paste coupon code
into the box in your shopping cart.
Copy and paste Special_Day into the box on the left of where it says ‘Apply coupon’.
Click the ‘Apply coupon’ button and the page will refresh.
SCROLL DOWN to see that your discount has been applied to the subtotal.
When you’re done playing, click the red X next to the product description to remove stuff you don’t want from your cart (otherwise it’ll be there for ever, or until you clear your browser cache…)
Experiment completed, go browse our e-books to choose something to enliven your Italian study program.
The coupon code is good until Sunday night sometime. You can use it as often as you wish. It’s valid for e-books, not for online lessons and other stuff.
Buy why, you may be wondering, is the coupon code called Special_Day?
Simple, because today’s the Festa della liberazione here in Italy.
And also, as Helen wrote to remind me, Anzac Day, which commemorates the sacrifices of troops from Australia and New Zealand in WW1.
So happy Monday 25th of April, wherever you happen to be and for whatever reason is closest to your heart.
As promised, here are the links to today’s free lesson, and to the previous lessons in the series:
And for any Italian teachers out there, the team at Imparareonline which produces onlineitalianclub.com (mainly me, Lucia, and a bunch of enthusiastic freelancers…) have been working on a new site, italianoxstranieri.com.
It’s for Italian teachers of Italian and has some interesting articles covering teaching tips and so on.
It’s in Italian, obviously, so offers double value, as you get both reading practice and methodological input.

By the way, the ‘x’ in the domain name stands for ‘per’. It’s a common abbreviation.
More on Wednesday.
