How to use Italian pronouns

Posted by Monica Corrias on November 28, 2007

How are you today? (= Come stai/state, oggi?)

Are you having problems with Italian pronouns?

I can help you in learning some grammatical structures. I posted a list where you can find some verbs with different type of pronouns (so you can see how do they work).
Make notes of new and old grammar points: the most important thing is to keep your Italian fresh by continuing to study it as well as use it.
I am sure your Italian will improve more if you have time to review each grammar information, to listen to Italian songs and to speak with Italians in your country.

Most important: you have to practice the language in Italy if really you wish to speak Italian as the Italians do.

Italy is a gorgeous nation and you can speak Italian everywhere: we like to chat! 🙂

Italian songs to enjoy Italian culture

Posted by Monica Corrias on November 23, 2007

Hi, I suggest that you all read and listen to these songs to improve your listening skills and your confidence in Italian language and Italian culture.

Ciao a tutti!

Ieri Chiara, una studentessa italiana, ha lasciato un commento indicando Laura Pausini fra i suoi cantanti preferiti.
Penso che sia stata un’ottima segnalazione soprattutto perché non si può parlare di musica italiana senza parlare di lei, che ha appena vinto il “World Music Award” come “Best Female Artist”, e che l’anno scorso ha vinto il Grammy Award per il miglior album pop latino dell’anno.

Se volete saperne di più su ecco il link:

Vi consiglio di ascoltare queste due canzoni (= I suggest that you listen to these 2 songs):

Io canto” 2006 (omaggio a una canzone del 1979 di Riccardo Cocciante)
Tra te e il mare” 2000

Secondo me sono due belle canzoni e non presentano particolari difficoltà grammaticali.

Continuate a studiare l’italiano?

Posted by Monica Corrias on November 15, 2007

Ciao, come state?

State dimenticando il vostro italiano o lo continuate a praticare e migliorare? Mi raccomando, sapete che ci tengo molto.

Io, come sempre, ho insegnato a scuola (mattina e pomeriggio): oltre alle classi dei corsi standard sto preparando alcuni studenti che sosterranno l’esame per la certificazione CILS (di cui on line potete trovare alcune vecchie prove d’esame).

Ieri abbiamo fatto il solito pranzo di fine corso e ci siamo un po attardati a chiacchierare. E’ stato piacevole come sempre e abbiamo parlato e scherzato parlando italiano e qualche interlingua.

In questi giorni ho anche aggiornato la pagina “Italian classes”: ho inserito gli esercizi sul condizionale e un link a una canzone che vi consiglio di ascoltare, il titolo è “Quello che le donne non dicono“, spero che vi piaccia.

Che altro? A Roma oggi fa freddo e nel pomeriggio c’è stata anche la pioggia. E pensare che io che amo il caldo!

Un’ ultima cosa, una collega di Palermo mi ha lasciato un commento con il link al blog che lei gestisce utilizzando materiali prodotti dagli studenti, se vi va dategli un’occhiata.

Buon fine settimana a tutti.

Italian for beginners (but not only)

Posted by Monica Corrias on November 4, 2007

As you know, I like to teach Italian.

Two days ago Julie, an ex-student of mine, asked me what my goal was in teaching Italian on line (for free).
I teach Italian every day and I like my job very much. I think internet is a perfect way to share “know how” and information.
In every University or Italian language school, teachers speak Italian and I as well teach in Italian 🙂 We teach you in Italian because it is very useful and it works.
I use the “communicative” approach with an analysis of grammatical structures and the language of daily life: I give student information about language used in everyday situations to enjoy Italian life. But I can sense the initial student’s frustration at not being able to understand and speak Italian quickly.
I dislike such frustration. My goal is to improve your ability in Italian grammar and also your skills to listen to Italian with more confidence. Also, I think that you need basic skill from which you can then develop fast and well, and I can help you on line to reach this. So if you are moving to Italy to study Italian, I recommend that you start learning Italian now.
Of course, to improve your speaking skills you need an everyday amusing course in Italy or to speak with an Italian friend or teacher in your country.
Anyway, you can find the first little vocabulary (only 25 basic words) + the second part (50 words) on the page “Italian classes” where I usually write all the little lessons that I think for all of you.

Chiedo scusa per l’inglese (troppo e pessimo) a tutti gli studenti che sgrido ogni volta che non parlano in italiano.
Spero mi giustificherete 😉

Ciao
