8. Interrogative Sentences

How do you ask a question in Italian? The sentence structure is exactly the same as the one used for statements, you just change the intonation at the end! Sometimes the position of the subject or the object changes for more emphasis, or to modify the meaning slightly. Listen to a few examples!

Next, we see all Italian question words: CHI; CHE/COSA/CHE COSA; QUALE/QUALI; QUANTO/A/E/I; QUANDO; PERCHÉ; DOVE; COME. Listen to all the examples to learn how to use them, and also expand your vocabulary.
