In this lesson, we’ll talk about a very singular topic, which isn’t always addressed during language classes, but that can be very helpful when writing in Italian. In fact, we’ll talk about all cases in which we have to use capital letters, and we’ll give you many examples to help you understand more easily.
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.
All those people who want to start learning a new foreign language, whatever this language is, usually begin by buying a damned grammar textbook and an obnoxious bilingual dictionary. This happens because they want to learn every possible grammar rule and memorise a multitude of words out of context… However, this kind of approach is a recipe for failure: communication is not all about grammar, syntax and vocabulary. During an act of communication, many other elements come into play all at the same time. This is why we decided to create the Learn by Copying course, the only free Italian course completely based on the Imitation Technique: the scientifically proven method that allows you to learn foreign languages quickly and automatically (without studying).
In this video we asked Spanish teacher Marta Tardáguila Del Castillo, who has been living in Italy for more than 10 years now, what she thinks about Italy, what she likes about this country and, above all, what it feels like to live in the BelPaese. What she told us is very interesting!
Most of the time, people who want to learn a foreign language (whether it’s English or Italian, French or German) start by buying a grammar textbook and a bilingual dictionary and learning every possible grammar rule and word. But what most people don’t understand is that communication is not all about grammar, syntax and vocabulary. During an act of communication, many other elements come into play all at the same time, that’s why we decided to create a free Italian course completely based on the Imitation Technique: the method that helped millions of people all over the world to learn foreign languages automatically, without studying!
