About The Event

Level 1

from Beginner to Low Intermediate

Essere and Avere are so important that they can be defined as the Italian language's mother and father.

In fact, they are two of the most common verbs in the Italian language. They are used in various situations and serve as a grammatical aid.

The two verbs are commonly used in their present tense form to mean “to be” (essere) and “to have” (avere). This allows speakers to express their states of being and talk about things they have in their possession.

Learning the present tense of essere and avere is also important because they are used to create compound tenses such as the passato prossimo (the present perfect tense).

Finally, they are used in idiomatic expressions that extend their functions beyond their essential translations.

What to expect:

  • Grammar rules explanation plus practice with interactive activities (eg. exercises, quiz, games)
  • Class video recording available to download.
  • Access to WhatsApp Group* to practice with your classmates, ask questions and receive tips.

Duration: 1:30 hr.
