short descriptionIn this course we go more and more in depth with the tenses and the communicative incidents of the Italian language. For example, we will learn the future tense and thus get rid of our unfavorable "no-future attitude". We move equally into the world of work and into the world of love and relationships of all kinds (mixing between the two is not encouraged, but you can do whatever you want with the language). We go through the imperative again and this time we also give our orders and "recommendations" with the "lei" polite form (because even lawyers / civil servants / professors have to learn to obey our wishes sometime). Finally, we will take our first steps with the congiuntivo presente, with which we will express our opinions and feelings with increasing grammatical elegance. At the end of the course we will also have a small session with an Italian tabletop role-playing game. Preparate i vostri dadi digitali!
