I’ve been teaching and learning languages for around a quarter of a century now, but terms like ‘subjunctive’ and ‘conjunction’ still make me shudder.
And here they are together!
Today I have two new Italian exercises designed to press hot embers against the soles of your naked feet.
No, I mean today I have two new Italian exercises designed to focus your attention on whether or not you need to use the subjunctive after certain conjunctions.
I’ll give you a clue.
Sometimes you do, sometimes you don’t.
The topic is covered briefly in Lesson 31 of our free Italian lessons series, ‘Uses of the subjunctive‘.
By all means take a look yourself before trying the exercises. But ‘confusing’ more or less sums it up.
Here are the links to the two ‘new’ exercises:
Subjunctive or Indicative?
And now, on to happier things!!
Back in February 2016 I did an article asking for your preferences regarding payment through Paypal or Amazon (read it here.)
Plenty of you wrote in to tell me that you liked one or the other, disliked both, or didn’t care.
Anyway, the big news is that on the new shop site, easyreaders.org, we’ve included ‘Pay with Amazon’ as an option, along with Paypal and direct bank transfer.
If you have an Amazon account that you use to buy books or whatever, you’ll have already saved you personal details and credit card information with them.
Suppose then that you then want to purchase e-books for learning Italian?
Well, in our new shop you can now use your Amazon account to process the payment, rather than having to fill in all your details on our site too and wrestle with Paypal…
All that’s necessary is to enter your Amazon username and password and, ‘hey presto’, the payment will be handled securely and instantly on their servers!
There’s another thing – as well as saving time, by choosing the ‘Pay with Amazon’ option, you’ll also benefit from the range of guarantees and dispute resolution procedures that they offer.
So were you to choke on an ebook, you’d be reassured to have an organization as powerful as Amazon on your side.
There! Now you have no excuse not to try one of our marvelous original Italian easy readers:
