I decided to move some of my handwritten notes on Italian studies to the blog, in case I lose my papers. There will be 15-20 short lessons – the very essence of Italian grammar, absolute minimum you should know to start speaking. I know, it’s not easy to start. But if you reach Lesson 7 (modal verbs), you’ll be able to build really a lot of phrases yourself.
We’re starting from pronouns and to be verb.
Italian pronouns – singular
- I – io (sounds like ‘yo, man!’, but sofffffter – jio)
- you – tu (informal)
- she – lei
- he – lui
- you – lei (formal or polite way)
Italian pronouns – plural
- we – noi (sounds like n + Oi-oi-oi! in songs)
