Today’s new, free material for students of Italian is yet another set of conversation prompts.
The theme is ‘Sei bravo a… ?‘ (‘Are you good at…?’)
Be aware that, at least for school subjects, Italians use the preposition ‘in’ not ‘at’.
“Sono bravo in matematica!” (I’m good at maths = I’m good IN the maths class.)
Keep in mind that if you’re female, as fifty percent of us are, that would be ‘bravA’.
“Sono brava in matematica!”
You’ll find the newly-published conversation prompts here:
Try them with a friend from your Italian class, with your online teacher, or even alone.
You could interview yourself, like this:
“Raccontami Daniel, eri tra i migliori nella tua classe a scuola in qualche materia?”
“Beh, con franchezza Daniel, non ero molto interessato allo studio…”
There are now fifteen topics to choose from, with more on the way.

And guess what?
Emilia Romagna, where I live and run an Italian language school, gets FIRST PLACE!
Check out the article.
The picture for Emilia Romagna in the Italian version shows the centre of Bologna and was probably taken from the cathedral bell-tower, which is just meters from where I’m sitting as I write this.
If you have time, why not read and compare both versions?
Or, if you’re in a rush, just do the no. 1 destination (it’s quite short) – no need to bother with the other nine…
A venerdì, allora.
