OK kids, ok behave and keep silent!! This is not a free class, this is an Italian class.... don't talk with each other or I'll give you extra homeworks!! (...sorry, teaching at the primary school affected me!!
Ok, let's try to get organised... so far we have two assisants of the teacher (I'm the supposed-to-be teacher Darkroom and Ieppie my assistants, ok) one false beginner Fenek, a complete beginner Strigo, and a "hearer" NulNuk... plus Exp who is a cohoperator... is that right?
just needs corrections and a bit of support... But he knows Italian... just needs to go a bit deeper into it...
instead needs to start all!! Well, I don't have any material to share with you... at the beginning I think learning is pretty mechanical... I should write you here a bit of phraseology and the coniugation of the tenses, but it's long and a bit unuseful cose I know all this things are already written in the Uniland archive!
Well, something I could write here is about the use of tenses and verbal modes... Let's start with present tense today!! It's used for all the actions which are considered habits, typical of that period of time you find yourself in, or simply very very near in time. This last one is a characteristic different from English. in Italian we consider the closeness of an action to our present, and wether it is defined or closed or not is less important. We use it also in the case of a first ipothetical sentence (a possibility that is almost true) . I don't know if I've been clear enough... mmmm... tell me, if you can't uderstand I'll change my method according to your needs ok? (btw Strigo, the very first message I wrote was bilngual, Italian/English
P.S.: I know that Foro was probably the plural word for the single forum, in fact in Rome we have the Foro Romano, but I'm not sure it's just a guess... anyway, it's a very updated word we actually use Forum...
, mi piacerebbe saperne di più sulla tua idea di costruire un sito di italiano... purtroppo io sono tecnicamente molto ignorante (sono una stupida umanista...) e non capisco nulla di tecnologie informatiche... allo stato attuale non so neanche quanto tempo potrei prometterti, ma come idea mi sebra carina... dimmi cosa hai in mente!!
