This course aims to study and consolidate, in a fun and interactive way, some challenging small words, mainly conjunctions and adverbs. It is suitable for learners with at least a lower-intermediate knowledge of Italian.
If those little words and many others like “anzi”, “magari”, “infatti” and even “mica” give you a headache, then this is the right course for you!
By the end of the term, after having fun in a very welcoming class atmosphere, you’ll be able to use many of these challenging little words with confidence and sound more and more like a native!
