Let's Speak Italian!


Hi everybody, my name's Mike and this is the Let's Speak Italian podcast. I've found that the key to learning to speak Italian is to learn a little bit every day, and to practice it with your friends. So listen to one lesson, every day for 24 weeks. By the end, you'll be amazed at how easy it was, and just how much you can learn by practicing a few minutes every day.

Grazie tanto, arrivederci.

dormire = to sleep

partire = to leave

aprire = to open

Then to conjugate these infinitives, you will drop the 'ire' and add the following endings:

io = add 'o'

tu = add 'i'

Lei/lui/lei = add 'e'

noi = add 'iamo'

voi = add 'ite'

loro = add 'ono'

So to conjugate the verb 'dormire':

io dormo

tu dormi

Lei/lui/lei dorme

noi dormiamo

voi dormite

loro dormono

Il mio amico dorme sempre in classe. = My friend always sleeps in class.

Tu apri la finestra. = You open the window.

Noi partiamo oggi. = We leave today.

Loro partono domani. = They leave tomorrow

Voi partite dopodomani. = You (plural) leave day after tomorrow.
