A conjunction (congiunzione) links words, phrases or clauses and shows the logical relationship between them.
These conjunctions join two or more syntactically similar phrases.
Remember! Ed (And) is used instead of E when it precedes words beginning with a vowel.
Check out the following example.
|E (+ consonant)||Ed (+ vowel)|
|Mangio e vado al mare.||Mangio ed inizio a scrivere.|
|I'll eat and I'll go to the sea||I'll eat and I'll start writing|
These conjunctions link two or more phrases, and one of them depends on the other.
Dal momento che
|Anche se||Even though|
|Come se||As if|
|Finchè||As long as|
These conjunctions that usually introduce reported speech are generally preceded by verbs such as Chiedere (Ask), Dire (Say), Raccontare (Tell).
Conjunctions are usually at the beginning of the phrase they introduce.
Their position in a sentence isn't, however, fixed, and depends on the communicative intentions of the speaker.
Take a look at the following example.
|Introducing a phrase||Another position|
|Non ho comprato il pane anche se mi avevi detto di prenderlo.||Sarebbe meglio, tuttavia, comprare il pane.|
|I didn't buy the bread even though you told me to do so.||It would be however better, to buy the bread.|

Hello! My name is Deborah! I am a language instructor. I teach Italian, English and Bulgarian. I have more than 10 years teaching... experience, both face-to-face and online to individual as well as to small and large groups. At the moment I am teaching Italian in a private school in Sofia, Bulgaria- where I lived for more than 10 years. I teach English to students ready to move to English speaking countries for work, and to students who need Еnglish for their career. I also prepare students for exams (KET, PET, FCE, CAE, CPE), and I offer language courses for communication and travelling purposes. I attended the College (tourism) in Lucca-Italy. I have a diploma in Secretarial and Business Administration from the South Kensington and Chelsea Collage in London- (I lived in London few years ago). I have a TEFL certificate -grade A. and an ECL certificate in Bulgarian C1 with 96/100. Therefore, I have a good knowledge of how languages work and I can provide my students with helpful insight. Teaching is my passion, and I am constantly in search for new methods to help my students to get through the challenges and the difficults when learning a new language. I am an enthusiastic, dedicated and adaptable teacher. I always use the communicative method in my teaching and I try to make my students feel comfortable by creating a funny and relaxed environment. I hope to see you soon in one of my classes! Read more
