    "A collection of videos (with their transcript) on how to avoid common errors in Italian and create an awareness of common mistakes made by natives with a thorough explanation of the causing factors. Very useful for more advanced learners that have an interest in understanding developments in current Italian, i.e. use of the subjunctive/indicative from an academic perspective and notes on oddities of pronunciation".

    Exercises: - a useful exercise on congiuntivo (but some sentences do not sound natural to Italian natives) - basic grammar with exercises (and answers) - beginner to intermediate grammar - lessons with exercise "games"

    Three ways to type accents (written by Silvia)

    #1 uses Alt + a number combination on the keypad on the right hand side of your keyboard, but since it uses this keypad, it doesn't work on laptops
    #2 is the International Keyboard
    #3 is for Apple computers

    #1 refers to the ASCII code (American Standard Code for Information Interchange):

    à 133 (hold down the "ALT" key and continue to hold it while typing in the sequence 1 3 3 on the numeric keypad, and then release the "ALT" key)
    À 0192

    è 138
    È 0200
    é 130
    É 144

    ì 141

    ò 149

    ù 151
    Ù 0217

    #2 The US International keyboard layout is a feature of Windows that allows for easier input of accents for foreign languages. It should work in most programs that run on Windows.

    How to Install the US International Keyboard Layout in Windows XP:

    - go to 'Start' => 'Control Panel' => 'Regional and Language Settings'
    - click on the 'Languages tab' => 'Text services and input languages' => 'Details'
    - in the section 'Installed Services', you will see a list of the already installed languages/keyboard layouts. Click on the 'Add' button to open the 'Add Input Language' dialog box.
    - select English (e.g. English (United States) from the first drop-down menu
    => tick the Keyboard layout/IME field to activate it
    => select 'United States-International' from the second drop-down menu
    => click OK

    Notice that United States-International now appears in the list of installed keyboard layouts. Look at the section Default input language above. Select English (United States - United States-International) from the drop-down menu. This layout will now be selected automatically every time Windows starts.
    - click OK to close the Text Services and Input Languages dialog box.
    - click OK to close the Regional and Language Settings dialog box.
    Your keyboard layout is now configured for accents! ;)

    (See this Microsoft page for support.)

    #3 Accent codes for the Macintosh are very simple:
    - grave accents à è ì ò ù --- Option Key + `, the vowel (to input the letter à, hold down the Option key, then the ` key, release both keys then type lowercase a or uppercase A if you want it in caps)
    - acute accents é --- Option Key + E, the vowel (to input the letter é, hold down the Option key, then the E key, release both keys then type lowercase e or uppercase E if you want it in caps)

    New feature!!

    Every text entry box has accented letters available for the language of the forum you are in.

    Click on the thumbnail below
    and look to the right of the icons: (this feature is only available in the "Go Advanced" text entry box, not in the "Post Quick Reply" entry box)
