This 16th lesson teaches the Italian imperative form. In addition you will find a vocabulary list about places and household objects. I will try to give examples using both vocabulary and grammar. That way it will be easy for you to see the words when they are separate and when they are in a sentence. Going through the whole page should take about 30 min. Make sure to read the pronunciation and hear the audio as well. If you have any question about this course, please email me directly at Italian Classes.
Knowing the imperative form in Italian is a powerful skill. It can make it easy to ask someone to do something, and clarify what you want done.
