ITALIAN CONJUGATION DRILLS SAMPLER I’ve created a lot of ‘quick conjugation workbooks’ for my students and they’re really popular and effective. They’re a great way of practicing, reinforcing and revising how to conjugate all the various verb groups and tenses/moods in Italian. I use them 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 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.

My quick conjugation workbooks focus on 25 specific Italian verbs in a range of tenses. Each workbook is structured as follows:

= Two alphabetical verb reference lists: Italian-English and English-Italian.

= Three conjugation challenges, each with 50 individual conjugations, so 150 conjugation questions in each workbook:

= Conjugation Challenge 1: each verb conjugated across a range of pronouns, with students writing the corresponding English verb conjugation.

= Conjugation Challenge 2: gives the infinitive of each verb in Italian, specifying the target pronoun. Students write the corresponding verb conjugation.

= Conjugation Challenge 3: students write the corresponding Italian verb conjugation, and its infinitive, from an English prompt.

Each workbook is also accompanied by a 6-page answer key book which students find really useful, either to self- or peer-assess - this is also a great time saver for teachers, as well as a way of encouraging students to really assume more responsibility for, and independence in, their learning. The answer keys also provide students with an additional opportunity to engage with language and conjugation, and they genuinely enjoy correcting their own - and particularly each others’ - work!

I encourage my students to visit the Notes and Next Steps template regularly, reflecting not only on the verbs and conjugations they 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. We also use their notes to guide and inform whole-group discussion about progress, which is a really useful activity too. Students are able to note down any new Italian verbs they learn, enabling them to build up a comprehensive verb vocabulary bank.

This sampler demonstrates the various conjugation challenges, with the answer key immediately following the relevant conjugation drills. There is also an exemplar verb reference list.

ITALIAN ARE VERBS CONJUGATION DRILLS BUNDLE #2

**ITALIAN CONJUGATION -ARE VERBS PRINTABLES WORKSHEETS EIGHT WORKBOOKS & TENSES** *Conjugating Italian -ARE verbs, featuring 25 high- frequency Italian -ARE verbs, including both regular and irregular verbs*. These quick conjugation verb practice workbooks focus on the *present, perfect, imperfect, future, conditional, pluperfect, future perfect and conditional perfect tense*s - the exercises are not about usage of particular tenses, they are about helping students really get to grips with the 'mechanics' of conjugation itself. *There are 150 conjugations in each workbook, so 1,200 conjugations in total*. My students like to work independently, and prefer to have regular and frequent opportunities to work through the conjugations. They find the quick conjugations a really successful way of developing their conjugation skills. The workbooks each have 10 pages, 3 differentiated quick conjugations challenges, 150 conjugation questions, so 1,200 conjugation questions in total. My students always ask for an *answer key*, and it's a great way for them to further practice conjugation. They like to both self and peer assess, and it's a great time-saver for me too! Each answer key booklet has 6 pages. The workbooks are useful in a range of learning contexts, such as free-choice grab and go activities in class time, directed learning activities, home learning, practice and revision during vacation or on return from vacation and sub lessons. **The tenses are:** = present tense (*presente*) = perfect tense (*passato prossimo*) = imperfect tense (*imperfetto*) = future tense (*futuro semplice*) = conditional tense (*condizionale, presente*) = pluperfect tense (*trapassato prossimo*) = future perfect tense (*futuro anteriore*) = conditional perfect tense (*condizionale passato*) Grammar books are not consistent with grammatical terminology, so in this context, the *conditional perfect is I would have done or I would have been for example*. It’s useful to remind students of a number of things when focusing on or revising tense and verb conjugation. Language learners do often try to conflate what they know about conjugation in both languages, so I refer frequently the difference in usage, though this workbook focuses on conjugation, not usage. *For example, with the conditional perfect tense, students need to have a good grasp of the two auxiliaries, avere and essere in the conditional tense, and equally a sound understanding of the patterns in forming past participles* - the workbook definitely helps them with this. I’ve included the relevant personal pronoun in **Challenge One** because not using pronouns, and relying on the verb form and/or context to recognize meaning, is a new concept for many language learners, so this does help them as they begin to work with the conjugation of verbs. I haven’t included the *formal plural loro* in the exercises, as it is no longer common usage, but it’s helpful to point it out to students in general, in case they come across it, and are confused by it. **The structure of each workbook 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 in Italian across a range of pronouns, with students writing the corresponding English verb conjugation. **Conjugation Challenge 2**: gives the infinitive of each verb in Italian, specifying the target pronoun. Students write the corresponding verb conjugation in Italian. **Conjugation Challenge 3**: students write the corresponding Italian verb conjugation, and its infinitive, from an English prompt. *Notes and Next Steps* sheet, which my students do like to revisit regularly too, as it helps them to reflect on their progress. We also use this to guide and inform whole- group discussion about learning and progress in general, which is also a really useful activity. Students note any new verbs they learn, which enables them to build up a great longer-term verb vocabulary bank.

**ITALIAN -ARE VERBS CONJUGATION PRACTICE** I create a lot of these kinds of 'quick conjugation' workbooks for my students - they find them really useful for practicing and revising their conjugation skills. They tend to prefer learning independently, and workbooks do allow them to do that.

They're great for practice, revision, holiday and home learning, refresher activities and also for sub lessons. **Each workbook is structured 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. *6-page answer key*, which is an integral element of the resource - it gives students an additional opportunity to engage with the language and grammar, and really helps them develop more independence in their learning. They also genuinely enjoy assessing their own - and particularly each others' - work! *Notes and Next Steps* template, which I encourage my students to visit regularly, reflecting not only on the verbs and conjugations they 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.
