"It seems to me that it is the beginning of the end."
Translation:Mi sa che è l'inizio della fine.
How does "Mi sa che è" mean "it seems to me"? Just a little confused with this one...
Rather sneakily, "sapere" in Italian can mean "to smell" or "to taste" as well as "to know". I think that this how it can also be used for "to seem" -- similar to English phrases like "this smells like a scam to me". (wordreference.com tells me that, as in the English equivalent, this sense of "sapere" is an informal usage.)
probably just something to memorize. Mi sa - it seems to me.
literally: To me it knows
I had the same thought and too would like to know whether subjunctive would be better here?
