Buon giorno a tutti!
Today, I have three more Italian grammar exercises for you, and details of our new easy reader!
As I mentioned last week, I’m now working on tidying up our recent Italian Lessons series, specifically, finding a home for all the various bits and pieces on our site that need to be fitted in somewhere.
At the moment I’m dealing with the interactive exercises that were left over. I’m working up through the levels, optimizing, reformatting and checking.
This morning I looked at these three. You’ll see my comments on where I think they might fit in (in brackets after each one.) Your feedback on the exercises themselves, and on where they should go in the series, would be very welcome!
- With Or Without An Article? (Would you say Lesson 45 rather than Lesson 1?)
- ‘Essere’ Or ‘Avere’? (This seems to go naturally with Lesson 8.)
- Pronouns (Lesson 9 would be the obvious place for this.)
And once you’ve finished scratching your head over the complicated rules for using articles, take a look at our new e-book easy reader Mistero al Circo Garotti.
This one is graded at elementary (level A1/A2). Which means that the eight chapters are very short. The story is told succinctly but effectively. You should get through it quickly, whatever your level!
That said, there’s some stuff in there that I had to look up (thanks Roberto!) So, something for everyone, I suppose…
What’s it about? Here’s the info that would be on the back cover, were it to have one:
The Circo Garotti is the most famous circus in Italy. But lately its owner, Alvise, has been troubled by the disappearance of some of the circus’s performing animals… Can Alvise find out the truth behind these mysterious events?
Just the thing for a hot Monday in July, I think you’ll agree!
