10 Summary of Week 2

This week you have learned about the Italian rail network and the vocabulary for talking about different types of train. You should also be able to ask about the availability of trains to specific destinations and to use c’è (‘there is’) and ci sono (‘there are’).

The expressions c’è and ci sono are very frequently used. To practise them, look at the timetables of your local trains and practise saying which trains are available in the morning (la mattina), in the afternoon (il pomeriggio) and in the evening (la sera).

You have now reached the end of this course.
