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.

capire = to understand

finire = to finish, to end

preferire = to prefer

To conjugate these types of verbs, you will drop the 'ire' and:

io = add 'isco'

tu = add 'isci'

Lei/lui/lei = add 'isce'

noi = add 'iamo'

voi = add 'ite'

loro = add 'iscono'

Then to conjugate the verb 'capire':

io capisco

tu capisci

Lei/lui/lei capisce

noi capiamo

voi capite
