Prepositions are tricky. They seem to defy any rational logic, leaving us confused and frustrated. We can easily learn them as a rhyme… di-a-da-in-con-su-per-tra-fra, but how do we know which one to use in different contexts? This workshop wants to give you smart tools to memorize the right prepositions and provide a better understanding of their seemingly endless exceptions. A great opportunity to practice and take your Italian skills to a new level, in a friendly and informal setting.
Intermediate Italian Level Required.
