Learning Italian: Pronouns

By- Claudia Quesito

I pronomi are typically dreaded by language learners, but they are, in fact, here to help! They are used to make conversation smoother and avoid repetitions. The word pronome comes from Latin and it means “in place of the noun.” Indeed, a pronoun replaces a noun that has been just mentioned or that it can be easily assumed by the context.
