    I thought this would be an easy thing to find, but I can't...

    I have an essay to do in Italian tomorrow, but I need filler sentences (In my opinion, it seems to me, first of all let's consider, etc). I can find a thousand websites about French essay phrases, but none in Italian for some reason, and my Italian's not good enough to guess phrases :p:

    Anybody got any good ones?

    Thank you! Extremely good idea, I've now got half a page of really decent stuff. Thanks

    I actually ordered the French one two days ago, hadn't realised an Italian one existed but I'll probably buy that too

    per me questo significa - for me this means... it's like in my opinion, it could be use only "per me" : )

    "secondo me" is more used than "a mio parere". Unless your essay has to sound formal.

    Have you really nothing better to do than look through forums to find someone who has misused grammar and not even bother to answer the OP's question?

    thanks for the phrases, in the end the question was a dialogue between 2 people and i didn't actually manage to fit much of them in but i'll definitely use them later on

    Sorry, but this usage really gets up my nose. Only the other day a corporate banker told me 'I done Law at uni.' My admin colleague recently reminded me about 'the agenda I done.' It's probably standard English by now, but it grates. I looked at the thread because I speak Italian, but I found that I had nothing to add to the previous answers.
