Here you will find a selection of puzzles that you can download, print and solve at home.
Each puzzle also has a solution, for you to check later (no cheating!)
The puzzles are designed to help beginners pick up new words, or intermediate students to brush up their Italian knowledge.
Go on… try a few and let me know how you get on.
The word searches have a list of Italian words below the grid, which you have to find in the grid.
Words can go in any direction: left to right, right to left, top to bottom, bottom to top, diagonal up or down.
The freeform crosswords have the clues in Italian.
If you struggle with the Italian clues, you can always download the same crossword with the English clues.
However, the words to be found are always in Italian!
These are lists of words that have been scrambled, and your task is to place the letters in the correct order.
As they can be particularly challenging, I have designed them in two varieties: an easier one, and a more challenging one.
These come in two types.
The first one is about matching Italian words to English words, so it’s a straightforward translation activity.
The second one is about matching Italian words to other Italian words (by context).
These are quotes from someone famous.
Your task is to replace the numbers in the puzzle with the correct letters, and reveal the quote.
For these you have the option of using some of the hints provided.
