ILGUR (Italian Language, Grammar and Usage) is an online resource that aims to help students of all levels and ages who are learning Italian.  We have published over 200 “lessons” that aim to explain points of Italian grammar in a cogent and easy to understand way with lessons and examples that not only make sense but illustrate the complexities of the Italian language.

We invite people to leave comments, since many of the questions asked can help make posts better.  Also, if you see an error or a typo, please leave a comment so that we can make the necessary corrections.  All feedback is welcome!

About The Editors:

ILGUR was created by Keith Preble in 2005/2006.

About Keith:
Keith Preble graduated in 2003 with a degree in art history from the University of Melbourne. He also studied music and musicology at Clark University from 1994-1997 before moving and transferring his credits. While in Australia, he studied Italian and developed an interest in the history, art and culture of Siena as well as an interest in Rome, Palermo, and Sicilly, Sicilian history and art.  Keith is currently working on a travel guide for travelers on the Sicilian capital, Palermo — excerpts, photos and news of the book can be seen at Progetto Palermo.

As of 2012, he is currently living in studying in Rome at St John’s University for a Master’s Degree in International Relations.

In order to do any serious research in those area, he found it necessary to learn Italian and at first started learning it on my own, then through courses, private lessons and then by spending several years in Rome. The family on his mother’s side also emigrated to the United States from Italy in the early part of the 20th century. Part of learning the language has also been about connecting with his heritage, and he has enjoyed learning Italian as well as helping others learn it, too.  This site is a collection of notes and research compiled over many years and has become a popular resource for students around the world.

Keith is also a freelance writer and blogger and currently resides in Rome, Italy.
