  5. "Vuole la mia bevanda?"


"Vuole la mia bevanda?"

March 22, 2013



I just mistakenly answered "Do you want my beverage?" and went all smoothly. But my answer was wrong! The fix is needed.


This should be a pleasant surprise: "formal you" is conjugated like he and she. You'll learn more about it further down the tree!


"Would you like my drink" was my answer, and that is how I would put it in English. At any pub, holding out my glass towards someone with a quizzical face.


I agree that while the direct translation is "Do you/Does she want my drink?" most English and American speakers would say "Would you like" - so the hint to not mistake "want and like" is really incorrect.
