Italian Verb Tenses is designed to improve the skills and knowledge of beginning to intermediate students of Italian. Learning how to conjugate verbs correctly is a difficult task in every language but more so in Italian because of the many tenses and irregular verbs. Correctly conjugating a verb is a very important part of speaking and writing well, but one must also understand the need to use one verb over another and the reason for choosing each verb. It can be difficult; however, with time, dedication, practice, and consistency one can achieve excellent results.
