Your suggestions please - Hi everybody, :)
I noticed that many people are asking generic help to learn Italian language.
What kind of help do you need? Are there some specific things I could do to help you?

Do you want me to post Italian lessons? About what topics (grammar, phonetics…)?

Do you think games are helpful? What kind of games would you like?

If you are more than beginners, would you like to try to write in Italian? I’ll correct your mistakes.

Do you have any advices or suggestions to improve this discuss?

Thanks, ;)

Carla



Ciao a tutti, :)
ho notato che molti chiedono genericamente aiuto per imparare l’italiano.
Di che tipo di aiuto avete bisogno? Posso fare qualcosa in particolare per aiutarvi?

Desiderate che io scriva delle lezioni di Italiano? Su quali argomenti (grammatica, fonetica ecc.)?

Pensate che i giochi siano utili? Che tipo di giochi vorreste?

Se siete ad un livello avanzato vorreste provare a scrivere in italiano? Correggerò i vostri errori.

Avete consigli o suggerimenti per migliorare questo discuss?

Grazie

Carla ;)

- Ciao Carla,

yes, games is a brilliant idea :) The more games, the better is the discuss ;)

I have several suggestions inspired by another thread of this discuss.
1. Maybe we could have a thread kind of "quotation of the day" where we would post proverbs, sayings, quotations of Italian writers (with translation to English preferably ;) )

2. Another thread could be short interesting stories in Italian and English about Italy, Italian culture, Italian food, etc. It could be, for example, excerpts from the morning news.

3. There could be one more game: you, as the moderator, would give a task to find some interesting information about an Italian person, an event (Il San Remo festival), etc. Others would have to find interesting facts and information about the task and place it in the discuss with an accurate translation. So we would practice both Italian and English.

What do others think?

Tanti auguri,
Laima.

- Ciao Carla,
First of all, i think you're doing a great job. Inoltre, credo che Laima abbia scritto delle buone idee. Penso che queste cose saranno utile e divertimente. :) Sapiamo che devo migliorare il mio italiano scritto. Forse questi giochi mi daranno la possibilita a pratica (fare la pratica?). Infatti, vorrei fare qualunque cosa che mi aiutasse a migliorare la mia "writing". (Credo che il mio italiano parlato e senza speranza ;) ) Grazie per tutto, Carla! e grazie per le idee, Laima.

ciao,
Austin

Tips for Italian discuss - Ciao, well I believe the idea about games is great!

--- Crossword puzzles would be awesome
(beginning level of course)

--- descriptive games, such as clues to the parts of an automobile, house, etc.
(but we must guess what object it is using your descriptions)

--- short stories is a great idea !!!
(about italy and it's culture preferably, to learn something about your great land and people)

*** and a note, I think basic italian grammar skills would be very useful

I hope these suggestions are useful!

(Aspetto che questi suggerimenti sono utile!)---(???)

Grazie, a presto ... LadySinn :-)

- Hey. I just wanted to expand on Sinn's idea of grammar. I believe things like learning how to use possesive words and plural possesive words should be added to the discuss. Also, ways to describe locations; for example, how would you use the word "to" and "there" in sentences?

Hi everyone,
I just started a new thread for grammar and vocabulary questions. Ask your questions here: [url]http://www.phrasebase.c../../discuss/read.php?TID=4338[/url].

Zach,
about the words "to" and "there", please post to that new thread some short English sentences you would like to translate into Italian.

Carla ;)

- I would love regular lessons or classes for beginners like myself. Something that starts with the alphabet, basic greetings, present tense verb conjugations, etcetera.

- Go to www.bbc.co.../../languages. Click on Italian. It has exactly what you asked for and it's free(I found it because of a posting by Sinn).
