Tips For Learning The Italian Irregular Verbs

Ok, so you have probably noticed by now that the Italian irregular verbs can be very confusing and difficult to learn. It's definitely not an easy job to learn them but it isn't also impossible. Here some very useful tips for learning the Italian verbs:

1. Group the irregular verbs together...This action will help you memorise more verbs in less time! for example the verb mettere is irregular in the past simple tense (passato prossimo), the past participle is messo. What you can do is put in the same group all the verbs that have the same root mettere, permettere, ammettere, smettere and etc. 

2. Start with the most common irregular verbs first. Why? Because those are the ones you will see the most and therefore it will be easier for you to remember them!

3. Create flashcards! Yes, flashcards are very useful when it comes to learning new vocabulary and grammar. Every time that you learn a new irregular verb you can add it to your flashcards set.  

4. Set a goal...Yes, it's very important to set a goal because it will keep you focused and motivated! Just pick a number of verbs that you want to learn every day, week or month and try to stick to it!
