Publisher Comments:

Learn more than conjugation and discover the right verb tenses to use in conversation and in writing

If you are looking for help on memorizing Italian verb conjugations, then any old Italian verb book will do. But if you are interested in acquiring fluency in Italian, you'll need to learn how those fundamental building blocks of language are actually used in the context of everyday speech and writing. And that's where Practice Makes Perfect: Italian Verb Tenses comes in.

Practice Makes Perfect: Italian Verb Tenses goes beyond other verb books to coach you in when and why verb tenses are used. In addition to an array of fully conjugated verbs, you will find clear and concise explanations that pinpoint why specific tenses work in given situations as well as tons of engaging examples and numerous skill-building exercises. Combine those features with the renowned Practice Makes Perfect format and you have the ideal reference/workbook for beginning to intermediate Italian-language learners whose goal is to learn to speak and write Italian with fluency.

Practice Makes Perfect: Italian Verb Tenses gives you:

  • Detailed explanations of when and why to use different verb tenses
  • Plenty of lively examples covering a wide range of topics
  • Numerous engaging exercises
  • Comprehensive verb conjugation tables

Synopsis:

Conjugate verbs like a Italian

Most verb books offer little more than conjugation charts and a few mechanical exercises. Practice Makes Perfect: Italian Verb Tenses gives you much more. In addition to thorough demonstrations of conjugations for regular and irregular verbs, it features plenty of useful examples and numerous engaging exercises that help you remember verb tenses. And, equally important, it explains when and why to use them.

Two handy appendices (one listing conjugations and another matching verbs with their prepositions) make it easy for you to find the right words in Italian quickly.
