ITALIAN GRAMMAR IMPERFECT CONJUGATION ITALIAN -ARE VERBS IN THE IMPERFECT TENSE - QUICK CONJUGATION PRACTICE WORKBOOK
The workbook focuses on 25 high-frequency regular and irregular verbs Italian -ARE verbs in the imperfect tense (imperfetto). There are three differentiated ‘quick conjugation’ challenges, each with 50 conjugation questions, so 150 conjugations in total. My students really enjoy learning and practicing their conjugation skills with these kinds of workbooks, and I’ve created a series of them that they can access whenever they feel they need to do a little extra work on their conjugation. There’s also a 6-page answer key workbook - for me, answer keys are an integral element of the learning process with this kind of activity - they certainly help students develop more independence in their learning (and they do enjoy correcting their own and particularly each others’ work!), and they give students further opportunity to engage with the learning focus.
The resource is as follows:
Two alphabetical verb reference lists: Italian-English and English-Italian
Three conjugation challenges, each with 50 individual conjugations:
Conjugation Challenge 1: each verb is conjugated across a range of pronouns, and students write the corresponding English verb conjugation.
Conjugation Challenge 2: with this challenge, students are given the infinitive of each verb in Italian, with a particular the target pronoun. They then write the corresponding verb conjugation.
Conjugation Challenge 3: There’s an English prompt, and students write the corresponding Italian verb conjugation, and its infinitive form.
We use the Notes and Next Steps template regularly - it stimulates discussion and reflection not only on the verbs and conjugations students feel confident about, but also how they think their general skills in Italian might be developing through the activity - and equally importantly, what they can reasonably do to keep improving.
I use these kinds of workbooks in a range of learning contexts, such as .independent work either in class time or at home, holiday refresher work, or individual activities for sub/cover lessons. Students really benefit from several opportunities to work through the workbook, once or twice a term across a whole school year is a great way of both mapping progress and developing overall understanding and competence.
GRAZIE MILLE E BUON APPRENDIMENTO!
