After a month of articles about piacere I think it’s time for an exercise.
Remember the golden rule: “in Italian it’s not the person that does the liking, but the thing that pleases the person”, check the indirect personal pronouns and verb conjugations that I’ve provided in my previous articles … and fill in the gaps in the Italian sentences below :
