In this intermediate-level episode, we focus on six difficult Italian words, adverbs, and how to use them correctly in Italian. These words are: “alla fine”, “finalmente”, “anzi”, “invece”, “forse”, and “magari”.

Two Main Takeaways

  • The adverbs “forse” and “magari” both mean “maybe” in English. While the first word doesn’t imply any emotional attachment to what we are saying, the second one, “magari”, implies that we are hopeful. The word “magari” is also used for a wish that likely will not happen.
  • The adverb “alla fine” means “in the end”, while the adverb “finalmente” means “finally” in English.
