Italian: evolution of a welcoming language

The Italian language is undergoing radical changes which seems to please many speakers and worry experts and lovers of the Bella Lingua: the subjunctive is disappearing; the remote past tense is used less and less and the recent introduction of so many anglicisms might indicate a new process of linguistic evolution. Nevertheless, other languages from the past, dialects, slangs, and jargon have always done their part in shaping Italian as we know it today.
You might be surprised, intrigued, or even amused to discover how Italian is evolving into something “new”.

Grammatica: Facciamo il Punto: I verbi

NOT AVAILABLE

Cost: $55

Presented in Italian. Pre-registration is required

Verbs are the most important part of any sentence. Without them we cannot talk. They express how we are, how we feel, the actions we take. They describe events and situations too.
Italian verbs might be intimidating with our ARE, ERE, and IRE endings, but they can be fun to conjugate.
This workshop will help you to understand how our verb system works. Further, it will help you to master, in an interactive way, how to conjugate the present and the imperative tense s of all our regular verbs and the most common irregular ones.
