Would simply 'beviamo' be correct? I was a little unsure because sometimes the first word is not necessary when showing who' s doing the action. Thanks! :)
Yes - it would be fine :) Beviamo implies the direct pronoun "noi" and so it can be omitted. Same goes for most other situations.
and Japanese (well you got to say the topic once and then getting rid of the topic is ok... well until the topic changes)
Yeah spanish is like italian that's why I'm not having such a hard time learning it
Italian, French and Spanish are all similar because they've sprouted out from Latin.
My Language Teacher says it's more like French in style, but Spanish in language.
Im getting from Italian so far that in most cases it is okay to leave the pronoun out?
i know right they dont really explain what the words mean they just expect you to know them. but if you dont know what the words mean homer over them with your mouse and they tell you how to pronounce them as well as what the mean.
I agree! Even though your comment was made 4 years ago, I still agree! Quick question, does Italian get harder, as you move on?
I've been remembering them by thinking of 'noi siamo' - 'noi beviamo/abitiamo/parliamo' and 'voi siete' - 'voi bevete/abitate/parlate etc. I found it a bit difficult at first but remembering the words like that has helped quite a bit, I've only been learning for just over a week but getting there. It's just down to practice.
Thank you very much i find it hard with the eating, drinking, reading and writing subjects and which is which will keep that in mind :)
Is not an easy way... Just a lot of memorization of the different conjugations of all the verbs...i try to take just one a day. Starting with the basic verbs
Does beve, bevo, beviamo etc mean only the physical act of drinking, or can it also mean drinking the way in English we use it to talk about consuming alcohol?
I think (not sure tho) it only means the physical act, as in some of the exercises it says, for example " io bevo l'acqua" (or somthing like that) meaning you're specifying what you're drinking (water). So I think you'd have to add the italian word for alcohol (which i don't know) to specify you're drinking alcohol?
Good question, i think we use it to also mean drinking but i dont know this. Who is know?
Don't quote me on this, but it says on the bottle, and also booze, so I'm assuming it's about the same.
It's basically the same verb, but it has a different form. The root is always the same (bev-) but with different terminations (-ete, -iamo) depending on the personal pronoun that you use it for. That's how it goes with all the latin languages.
Why wouldn't 'beviamo' just be 'bevi' because of the 'i' in 'Noi'? It is because 'Noi' has a plural meaning?
the "i" in "noi" has absolutely no relevance here. given that Italian is a Latin language, i can tell you the same pattern had been used in Latin as well, even if not the same exact terminations. Also, French has this pattern for the verb terminations too.
Noi means we, so the verb would be beviamo, but since the verb in english is drink, that's why it's confusing. But since the verb beviamo/drink is in present tense (I think, right?) the word in Italian normally ends in "amo".
Can someone help me? :)
How can I remember all the different verbs? Is there an easy way or...??
Thanks and kisses, Susan
i heard noi vediamo If DL wants to get rid of the clutter they should get their audio sorted out and stop annoying us
I am an old guy. What is involved with sorting out the audio? I have trouble with the audio at times. Thanks in advance for your input.
Were not going to chill (you spelt it wrong with an extra l) until we learn the beautiful language of Italian (:
Hello, is there anyone here could explain whats the different usage between beviamo-bevi / bevete-beve / bevono-bevo? Aren't they the same? Thank you!
It tells me that translation of "noi bevismo" to "we drink" is incorrect. Yet on the red correction box oit says we drink. Program error?
Theres bug here. Ive correctly translated Noi beviamo as "We drink." Please fix or refund my money
This is how i remeber beviamo. I spell bevi and then love in Spanish amo
It sounded like leggiamo to me.I am sorry I have difficulty understanding you
You can text you don't even have to text it you you can text you don't to
There are two errors on these pages. Neither answers given are correct Noi----- Answers given are bevete bevono And no means of giving the correct beviamo
This page is obviously not being monitored
I put we drink with no capitals and it counted wrong! I am not happy. I lost points!! It was part of a year 8 exam study!!!
So I presume that if you are able to leave out the pronoun for this, simply making it 'beviamo', you can do the same with all verbs?
