Tante idee..... per (far) apprendere l'italiano

Mastering a language doesn't only mean passing a written test with excellent results but being able to use it in common everyday situations. Speaking is essential during a language lesson.
With  the help of this book, using it  together with a course book, you can pick up Italian more  easily.  It doesn't separate grammar from speaking skills: through its grammar activities you are motivated to communicate as well -  ideally it would be the basic purpose of each course book. That's why I find this book extremely helpful.
Can be used from beginner to pre-intermediate levels.

Interrogative adverbs

come ? how?
( come mai?) (how so?)
di dove ? from where?
dove ? where?
perché ? why?
quando ? when
quanto ? how much?

When an interrogative adverb starts a question, the subject follows the verb.

 Di dove sono i tuoi cugini? Quando è arrivata nonna Franca? 

 Only perché and come mai  can procede the verb:
 Perché quel bambino piange? / Perché piange quel bambino?

Interrogative adverbs are usually invariable, however come and dove can be abbreviated before è, era and erano

Com'era tuo padre quando eri bambina?
 Dov'è il mio portafoglio?
Non riesco a trovarlo!
