For those of you in the USA, Happy Thanksgiving!
(For those of you in Australia, G’day!)
May I suggest we give thanks that we’re not pupils at an Italian elementary school?
‘Cos the poor kids get regularly blasted with Italian grammar, that’s why.
I didn’t know what a preposition was until (shortly after) I became a language teacher.
Ignorance was bliss.
But in Italy, kids as young as seven or eight are expected to memorize long lists of them….
Perfect your Italian prepositions
It was the prepositions page in our free C2 Italian course (members only) that brought to mind this institutionalized child abuse.
It’s just the sort of comprehensive list of uses and exceptions that makes up so much of what passes for language teaching in Italy, and elsewhere.
Grammar rules and examples are meaningless for most children.
For adults though, well maybe it COULD be useful to have everything you ever wanted to know about Italian prepositions on one (very long) page, which you can print out and study.
So, if your Italian prepositions are shaky, click here.
(Don’t worry if you’re not at an advanced level yet. The material is suitable for anyone with masochistic tendencies.)
And if you’ve done all that already, I wonder what you could study next?
Oh yeah, I forgot.
All e-books in our shop are currently on offer right now.
You could save 30% on any or all of them, and never run short of study materials again!
Click here to get the Italian course e-book for your level. Or the next level, or the one after that. Nothing wrong with ambition.
