In this lesson you’ll learn to use the demonstrative adjectives questo and quello, meaning “this” and “that”. You’ll also learn to use the demonstrative pronoun forms, meaning “this one” and “that one”. There are a few things you need to remember, particularly with quello, because the forms change slightly depending on whether you’re using the adjective or pronoun forms. You’ll build on what you know already with this lesson, and there’s further practise with the help of translations and a dialogue.
