the verb is dimenticarsi ...a reflexive verb

For me, dimenticare is a difficult word to remember. When I find a word I have trouble remembering, I write it down multiple times, along with it's definition, repeating until I feel like I've at least etched the word/definition into the surface of my mind.

I was doing that here with dimenticare, until I realize I was giving myself a direction "to forget". dimenticare dimenticare dimenticare forget...

So I started writing non dimenticare.... "not forget...."

I hope it works.

Jeffrey -- it's a problem all of us have, remembering vocabulary. Your method is tried and true. But what I'd suggest is seeing if there's an English word that's related. In this case 'dementia' which is after all, forgetting things. If you see how dimenticare is related to dementia I'll bet you won't forget it.

Am I the only one that immediately started singing this along with Simple Minds' "Don't You Forget About Me"? At least it should be an easy phrase to remember now.

Haha I just did the exact same thing!

June 9, 2015


Me too!!

Yes but we have to change it slightly. Non ti dimenticare di me I guess it would be

June 24, 2016


Non ti dimenticare di me!

Would "Non ti dimenticarci," be acceptable here?

September 27, 2015


No. "Non ti" + infinite verb "dimenticare"

February 11, 2016


Ok... but that's not really an answer to my question. I don't want to remove the infinitive. I want to know if it's acceptable to attach "ci" to the end instead of using "di noi".

February 11, 2016


No. But you can use "non dimenticarci". The mean is the same. :-)

February 11, 2016


Thanks. Very helpful.

"Non dimenticarti di noi" should also be correct.

March 28, 2016


I believe so. Not sure, but I think so.

"You are not to forget about us" should have been accepted, right?

But that phrasing is pretty weird in this context. I could maybe see it in the context of telling a child, "You are not to watch any TV while we're gone." Even then, it seems a little anachronistic.

It surely sounds a bit out of date, but personally I thought it was the most duolingoesque answer. As in, it is almost word for word and best encapsulates the structure of the Italian sentence.

Oh, then no. This sentence, word for word, is "Do not forget about us." The negative imperative form for "tu" uses the infinitive form of the verb. The formal version of this sentence would be "Non dimentichi di noi," but it would have the same meaning.

one way to remember dimenticare as "to forget" is that Dementor's from Harry Potter cause people to forget happiness

June 4, 2017


wagnerr...Good suggestion...if one's read the Harry Potter books. Otherwise: "dementia" .

Good tips. For those of us who are "of a certain age", this verb may be easy because of Nat King Cole's hit song: ("Non dimenticar' means don't forget you are my darling..."

what's more common that or "non dimenticarti di noi" ?

October 13, 2015


The slow version of the phrase glitches around the word "dimenticare"

I'm going to have to report this. For "Non ti dimenticare di noi! I wrote "Do not forget about us". DL came back that the translation is : Do you not forget us!

Sorry, but that does not make any sense. I can't think of any occasion where I would say that to someone.

September 28, 2017


Are you sure you read everything correctly? The correct answer displayed above is "Do not forget about us."

September 29, 2017


DL told me the translation is 'do you not forget about us'... this doesnt work in english.... still flawed...
