The alphabet: A come Amore – Wilma De Angelis
Infinitives: Nel blu dipinto di blu – Domenico Modugno
The present continuous: In bicicletta – Riccardo Cocciante
The perfect versus the imperfect: Un Raggio di Sole – Jovanotti
The future tense: Un Anno d'Amore – Mina
The subjunctive: Il Congiuntivo
This one goes out to anyone who's ever struggled with the subtleties of the subjunctive. The hit of this year's Sanremo Festival, this tongue-in-cheek tutorial is a reminder that's it's not only foreign students who can't get the congiuntivo quite right. Lorenzo Baglioni's conjugation of the present, perfect, imperfect and past perfect subjunctive are a grammar teacher's delight.
