I'm confused about Mangi and Mangia. If Tu means you and Mangia means (you) eat and Mangi means (you) eat, how do you differentiate the two?
Mangi is used with you (tu). Mangia is used with he (lui), she (lei), and you (formal) (Lei).
Does anyone knoe the verb conjugation rules in Italian?? Duolingo doesnt teach them but i need to learn them!
Here are some useful links.
1. Italian conjugation on Wikipedia
2. Italian verbs conjugator on www.italiann-verbs.com
Mangiare = to eat
io mangio = I eat
tu mangi = you eat
lui/lei mangia = he/she/it eats
noi mangiare = we eat
voi mangiate = You eat
loro mangano = they eat
Interesting. So "Lei" is also used for "you" (formal) just like "Sie" in German (Ich liebe Deutsch). :)
"Tu" is the informal version of "you". It is generally used with family members or close friends. So "Tu Mangi' is informal "Lei Mangia" is the formal version of the verb.
A silly question:Have we learned the infinitive jet? I think all verbs should be introduced in the inf. First, prior conjugating them. Just a thought! !!!
Practice makes perfect ;) You'll master Italian with Duolingo in no time, why bother about infinitive, you'll learn about it when you start using it in sentences.
Tu means you when you are speaking with a person you know or a person near you. Lui and lei are for persons that are not close ( in distance) or when you refer to someone that is not in this moment here.
what is the plural for eat Io mangio Lui/Lei Mangia Tu Mangi Voi....... ?? Noi.... ??? Loro .....???
Io mangio, Tu mangi, Lui/Lei mangia, Noi mangiano, Voi mangiate, Loro mangiano
They are verb conjugations for the infinitive "mangiare".
I eat - (io) mangio
You eat - (tu) mangi
He/she eats - (lui/lei) mangia
We eat - (noi) mangiamo
You (plural) eat - (voi) mangiate
They eat - (loro) mangiano
Hope that helps.
Io mangio = I eat
Tu mangi = You eat
Lui/Lei mangia = He/She eats
This is the difference.
They're all eat, but different when conjugated with i, You, he/she/it and than we and they...
I don't understand why "you are eating" is a wrong translation for "tu mangi"
because that would be "tu stai mangiando". this is a whole different verb conjugation.
I suppose things like mangi and mangia are like so of our words but I still can't keep very good track of it, not to mention this time, they autocorrected it to mangia!
i don't know the difference when it comes to mangia, mangio, and mangi
I eat - io mangio you eat - tu mangi he eats - lui mangia she eats - lei mangia it eats - esso mangia
that's just how we conjugate the verb
I type you eat for Tu mangi and the program says incorrect. What am I doing incorrect?
Here we go again, the app rejeecting the correct answer, repeating what I typed but telling me it was wrong! Is this an internet connection issue or errors in the app? Either way it's so annoying
How do I make it so i don't have to get the questions that needs you to talk or listen
I wrote "Tu mangi" as a translation of "You eat" and i keep getting a notice that it is incorrect ! What is going on?
I repeatly translated:Tu mangi,you eat,but the answer showed,that it is not correct,even it is
Frustrated... Tu mangi = You eat??? Keep getting wrong answer help needed!!!!!
Im putting the right answer however its saying its wrong what happens now
boy if you do not go back to america bro you are going to get shot and i will
The voice recognition is inaccurate! It also doesn't allow you to try again. This needs to be addressed Duolingo!
French, Spanish and Italian are so similar. I am glad I learned French in school!
I dont know italian and its comming up with write it ones i still love this app though its very good to learn new languages ....
tu comes es la segunda persona del verbo comer en italiano. you eat es la segunda persona de comer en inglés y en español, es tú comes como singular.
WHAT is happening to the screen? I can't see what I have typed over the "new" pattern on the screen????
