Learn Italian language: Italian indirect pronoun and verb “piacere”

Posted by Monica Corrias on May 28, 2007

Ciao, as you know, I am working in one of the Italian language schools of Rome, but I like to teach you some piece of grammar information on line. I thought about you and I posted a new lesson on Italian indirect object pronoun and Italian verb “piacere” in the blog-page “classes” so, when you will come in Rome, you will understand and you will be very fast in learning Italian language. Please,
Remember: Italians love people who try to speak Italian language, so … you have to learn and improve your skills 😉
Buono studio!

Ti ( = you singular) piace la pasta? = Do you like pasta?
Ti ( = you singular) piacciono gli spaghetti? = Do you like spaghetti?

Spaghetti alla Puttanesca (Below you can find an english translation)

and decimal system and Italian verb “Piacere”:


We use only decimal system, therefore we cannot understand a different system. In Italy, if you like to buy something to eat or to drink, you have to use these words:

On the river Tiber across Rome

Posted by Monica Corrias on May 21, 2007

Ciao, I went along the river on the boat yesterday.

The Tiber (= il Tevere) is a fundamental aspect of Rome and it is completely navigable.

I took the boat at “Calata Anguillara” near the “Isola tiberina” (isola = island) and I bought the daily ticket (€2,30).
But you can buy the single fare: only €1 or if you prefer the tourist cruise: €10; Or Cruise + 1 guided tour of Rome: €32; but also Cruise with candle light dinner: €43; or if you like you can take the cruise from “Ponte Marconi” (ponte = bridge) to the ancient town of Ostia: the price is €13.

I live in Rome, so I prefer the daily ticket and I can enjoy Tevere and Roma from a different point of view.

I suggest you to try this experience.

You can see the timetable here

or you can call the number 06 69 29 41 47.

Buon divertimento (= have a good time)

Learn Italian language: reflexive verbs

Posted by Monica Corrias on May 12, 2007

Ciao, are you planning to go to Italy?
It’s great!
You could drop in Rome.

As you know, all around the year wandering in Rome is a constant voyage of discovery. You can visit museums, artistic locations, and also wine bars and great restaurants.
Here in Rome, you will be able to learn Italian and will improve your skills and I could help you to speak Italian and listening with more confiance. I ‘m able to teach all levels of Italian language and culture and I have strong experience in language instruction.
I am living in Rome and I’m a qualified and experienced Italian language teacher, so if you need a good Italian language instructor, email me!

But don’t worry, if you are not able to come to Rome this time, I will post in the blog-page “classes” a new grammar lesson on reflexive verbs (Italian “verbi riflessivi”) . The complete lesson would take too long, but I will make sure to include that lesson soon..

Ciao, a presto. Take care.

Alcuni links sulla lingua italiana

Posted by Monica Corrias on May 11, 2007

Ciao, sono nuovamente qui.

Ho appena ricevuto una mail da una ex studentessa che si è lamentata della mancanza della lingua spagnola in questo blog. Purtroppo non so lo spagnolo, ma mi piacerebbe che gli studenti di livello avanzato potessero scambiare idee e informazioni in italiano. Inizio io suggerendo alcuni siti ufficiali sulla lingua di Dante.

  • Accademia della Crusca (uno dei più importanti punti di riferimento della lingua italiana)
  • Treccani (il portale dell’Enciclopedia Italiana)
  • Italica (il sito di approfondimento di Rai International)

Date un’occhiata a questi siti e, se vi va, lasciatemi un commento.

Buona lettura

Buona giornata a tutti

Posted by Monica Corrias on May 11, 2007

Eccomi qui.

Ciao, come state? L’ultima settimana ho lavorato moltissimo con le lezioni della classe di conversazione, così non ho potuto aggiornare il blog. Scusate. Sicuramente nei prossimi giorni aggiungerò un post nella pagina in italiano, ma non so ancora quando.Sabato 12 inizierà la “Settimana della cultura“, e voglio assolutamente andare a visitare i musei Capitolini e la GNAM (la Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna), invece domenica 13 per gli italiani è la Festa della Mamma (e io andrò a trovarla, come ogni bravo italiano ;-)). Tutto questo per ribadire che ancora non so quando troverò il tempo per gestire il blog, ma sicuramente lo farò: promesso.
