Previously, in verbs similar to this, the "you" seemed to be optional - why not in this case? I wrote "Open the bottle" & it was marked wrong!
Well, "open the bottle" is imperative (as is "apri la bottiglia"), while specifying the subject first forces it to simple present.
That's funny, because earlier in the lesson (Marked Present Verbs) there are imperatives and subjunctives. (Or whatever jussive verbs are in Italian.)
What is the difference between 'apri' and 'aprite' and when may I use each?
Could someone break down how to pronounce the "bottiglia"? I tried to check it out on forvo, but I'm still having trouble saying the last part of the word.
This may be silly to ask here but how would you make this into a question, e.g. how would you make it into "Can you open the bottle (please)?"
This last part of present tense is cool, IMO. The idea here is to rock and roll all night. I found "you open the bottle" and "we finish the cake". They sounded like a party :)
How do I get out of Lesson Six in Present Tense Italian verbs. I never get more than thirty percent before I go back down to zero. I've been stuck giving the same correct answers for days.
That's all well and good but do you find happiness at the bottom of it?
