In this lesson we’ll talk about a very peculiar phenomenon of the Italian language, known as “variation between gender and meaning”. This simply means that in Italian there are some words whose meaning changes entirely according to their gender (feminine and masculine). It’s a pretty common thing, and that is why it is very important to learn how to not get confused between genders and meanings.
In this video you will take a test for beginners (level A1-A2) which is very similar to the official Italian language certifications for foreigners (CILS, CELI, PLIDA, etc.). You don’t need to have an exam scheduled to take this test, take it as a challenge! For each section, you will have some time to complete all of the exercises. If you need more time, you can always stop the video, but try not to take much additional time.
