Category: Italian grammar lessons

With our Italian grammar notes, you’ll find all you need to improve your Italian grammar: straightforward explanations, some relevant context, useful tips, examples, and translations. Grammar is basically what gives the language a structure, so it’s very important to learn some Italian grammar rules. Grammar cannot exist without some context. This is why you’ll always find examples that display the Italian grammar explained. When it’s relevant, we include some information about the Italian culture and traditions. In short, you’ll find lessons about Italian verbs, prepositions, nouns, pronouns, adverbs, adjectives, and expressions of time. We also prepared some lessons with the following structure: “how to say (word in English)” and “how to use (word in Italian)?” Enjoy!
