Italian verbs, “di” or “a”? Countdown quiz.

Time to practice Italian verbs followed by “di” and “a”. Countdown quiz – 20 minutes

  • Ho cominciato a leggere un libro.
  • Ho finito di leggere un libro.


These two examples show how some verbs (e.g. cominciare & finire) can connect with a second infinitive verb (leggere, in this case) with the prepositions A or DI. There’s no strict rule about the choice, you will need to learn every single situation.

If you are not familiar with this topic please read these two blogs.

You have 20 minutes to try the quiz. Cominciamo?
