We hope you have enjoyed this free course, Intermediate Italian: describing people. You have learned how to describe both people’s physical appearance and their personality in Italian. You have also learned how to make comparisons and how to speed-read a text looking for meaning or specific information.

Finally you have been introduced to the work of the Italian author Natalia Ginzburg and have attempted to write your first literary text in Italian.

We hope you will now take the opportunity to use the language you have learned. Why don’t you find out about Italian communities near where you live?
