Via dei Verbi
is a practical guide and workbook on how to use Italian verbs at the beginning to
intermediate level. The volume is divided into the following four sections:
- The first section includes a useful multilingual dictionary, a guide of how to use the most
commonly used verbs in the Italian language. For each and every verb several information is
provided here: translation into five languages (English, French, German, Spanish and
Portuguese); proper auxiliary verb (to be or to have); and an example to clarify the meaning
of the verb in context.
- The second section offers a wide range of exercises and games on grammar, such as: multiple–
choice exercises, cloze tests, matching, crosswords, etc. Those exercises are divided by
level of competence (A1, A2, B1).
- The third section also contains a wide range of exercises divided by level of competence and
organized alphabetically. This means students can choose to practice on verbs of a specific
level or on all the verbs starting with a specific letter.
- The last section includes grammar tables showing verb formation and tense accordance.
The volume can be used either in class as a support to main course books, or for self–study as the
answer key is included in the appendix.
