    I'm on my phone atm so will have to see if I can find it again online later tonight. I don't think it should be too hard to find, if I can't find it I can email it to you?

    Ok, let me know if you can't find it and my italian's coming along nicely, I can say possibly the most important phrase: "Io non parlo italiano molto bene" ("I can't speak Italian very well"!!)

    Turns out it's easily found: http://robinonawire.wordpress.com/20...es-of-schools/

    The documents should be under the vocab bit, though there is lots of stuff there!

    Credo che il mio Italiano è (improving).

    Credo che + subj, remember! Here, (admittedly without the native expertise of Bambirina), I reckon we just want the verb to improve (oneself) in the present subjunctive so:

    Credo che il mio Italiano si migliori (si migliori coming from migliorarsi, to improve oneself - here, I'm thinking we need the si because we're not talking about who is improving the Italian, it's just improving, so we have to say that it is improving itself (from my knowledge of how it works in other languages, but I may be wrong soooo Bambirina help please!).

    EDIT: it has just occurred to me that you probably haven't learnt that yet just remember credo che + subj and ignore it until you get to the subjunctive but then again, if you don't use it, it won't matter all that much so eh, do with this info what you will!

    Is "Credo che" like "creo que" or "je crois que", so it means "I believe that"?

    Yep, exactly, but in Spanish and French, we don't use the subjunctive when it's a positive statement, and in Italian we do.

    (Also we shouldn't have a capital on italiano, it's just my bloody autocorrect!)

    Constant, since you're so proficient in Italian (and online right now ), could you please give me a basic run through of ci and ne? They are driving me nuts on DuoLingo.

    il fallait couper ta réponse. Otherwise, you might have had to re-read the whole thing to work out what I meant!

    Indeed you have to use the subjunctive, and I would say " credo che il mio italiano stia migliorando ".

    Oh, I didn't think that was needed :eek: thanks

    (For the record, I guessed the 'si' bit because of how French and German use the verb to improve :L)
