sorry, i can't remember what the sentence was, anyway... do they give the possibility to translate the italian "bere" with "drink", "buy" and "swallow"? it really doesn't have any sense :/
It's conjugated with pronouns, it's also a subject, lust like we have to, too, and two
Do you have auto correct turned on? If so, you shall probably pause/delete your youtube history.
Tuna steak Iceland came up on my autocorrect instead of 'tu bevi'. Bloody myfitnesspal!
I think the best thing to do is go through the lesson again and see if something comes up
(Lui) Beve = he drinks (Tu) bevi = you (singular) drink (Io) bevo = I drink
Beve= He/she drinks Bevi= You drink (singular form) Bevo= I drink In italian the subject can be omitted.
Verbs that end with 'o' are first person singular (me). (mangio, bevo)
Verbs that end with 'i' are second person singular (you). (mangi, bevi)
Verbs that end with 'a' or 'e' are third person singular (he/she/it). (mangia, beve)
Verbs that end with 'iamo' are first person plural (we). (mangiamo, beviamo)
Verbs that end with 'te' are second person plural (you). (mangiate, bevete)
Verbs that end with 'no' are third person plural (they). (mangiano, bevono)
So far it looks like spanish is more similar to latin than Italian
You wouldn't say, "You drinks." Each form conjugates differently.
Io bevo . . . . . . . Noi beviamo Tu bevi . . . . . . . Voi bevete Lui/lei beve . . . Loro bevono
Could you please make all of these answers' first letter either all lowercase or uppercase? It is really easy to tell which word is at the beginning...
Sorry, can you drop the tu/yo/lui/lei, etc. before the verb as you can in Spanish? So to say You drink water, could you just say "Bevi acqua"? And if so, which is more common - with, or without the tu?
The two languages are really similar at times!
Bebo > bevo
Bebes > bevi
Bebe > beve
Bebemos > beviamo
Bebéis > bevete
Beben > bevono
In English, this could mean either an observation or an instruction/suggestion. Is it the same in Italian? If not, which is it?
I think orders use a different form in Italian - Tu bevi is a statement. But I think you can also turn it into a question (You drink?) if you use questioning intonation.
Can one just say, Bevi for You are drinking/You drink? Each pronoun has its own conjugation, so it would be easy to differ just from that, unlike in English where we only have two conjugations, Drink and Drinks
First person singular : (Io) bevo
Second person singular : (Tu) bevi
3rd person singular : (Lui/lei) beve
*Subject pronouns can be omitted.
Bevo è I (io) drink
Bevi è you (tu) drink
Beve è he/she (lui/lei) drinks
There are also:
Beviamo: we (noi) drink
Bevete: y'all (voi) drink
Bevono: they (loro) drink
What's the difference between beve, bevo and bevi? What is suitable pronoun for each one?
Each one is a different form of "to drink" and goes with specific pronouns.
Is there supposed to be any difference between you and You ?? Why do they give it as different options..??
So verbs must agree with subjects. I drink=Io beve. You drink=Tu bevi.
Is that right?
Yes! The main verb for drink is bere.
Io bevo, tu bevi, lui/lei beve.
Noi beviamo, voi bevete, loro bevono.
Omg, its so easy for me (I'm a native potuguese speaker, nome thinks are just to obvious for me like: "drink"... Italian "bevi... Portuguese" "bebe"
So can Bevi be used as a non action? As in english it would be "your DRINK is on the table." Rather than " you drink" ( action) Idk if I'm making sense or not. Haha
Isn't "Tu" singular or plural, so couldn't the answer also be Tu beve or Tu bevi, depending on who ( how many people) yu are referring to drinking?
So here it is "Tu bevi" - ok; but why "Mangio una mela" without subject "Io" ? Use the same pattern for both sentences or you will confuse us!
They gave "Tu bevi" to show that the tu form of bevere is bevi. In "Mangio una mela", you presumedly already know that mangio means I eat, so they take out the io.
No in a lot of Latin based languages, it's extremely common for a naive speaker to not use the pronoun unless they are decisively trying to make an emphasis
The vocabulary flash cards gave the answer "you drink (in)". The software failed to recognize "(in)" during this exercise, or the flashcard answer is wrong, or ... ?
HI everyone, just wanted to know the difference between Tu Beve and Tu Bevi. Thank you all.
"Tu bevi" is correct, "Tu beve" isn't. We use "beve" with 3rd person singular (Lei beve. = She drinks.)
Yes,they are the same verb (bere=to drink), but different conjugations depending on the subject.
Since I know Spanish I sometimes get confused by this but what is the difference?
why do i see verb: "bere" instead of "beve" after clicking the conjugate button?
Bere is the base verb. Beve is one of the conjugated forms (the form for 3rd person singular ie he/she/it drinks) - read through the other comments, someone has listed all the conjugations
How do you distinguish between drink and drinks?
Bevi is you drink.
Bevo is I drink.
How do you remember the difference between bevi, beve, bevono, bevete, and beviamo?
You just memorize it. To be fair, most verbs conjugate the same, so you only need to remember one or two patterns.
Bevi or tu bevi is you drink or you are drinking depending on the context. Bevo or Io bevo is I drink and beve or lei/lui beve is she/he drinks etc. A very helpful tool in learning Italian is a conjugation list. Italian like Spanish or French work quite differently to English in grammar. It is important to make oneself familiar with the basics. Happy learning!
bevo use for i, bevi use for you ,beve use he and she ,we use beviamo ,they use bevono
I thought that just the word "bevi" translated to "you drink".. that the word "tu" is not need
The audio enunciation of bevi and beve need to be more clear. Along with other words ending with e or i. I keep getting tripped up due to mis hearing the word.
Hi , I can't determine when I use beve , bevo and mangio , mangia , mangi Any one help , please
When you say i drink you should say i bevo and beve should say with she and he like she or he beve ,i bevo and magio use with i ,i mangio ,you use mangi and she he mangia ,we mangiamo ,you all mangiate,they use mangiano
This is a pain in the a-- when you say it right and the lesson says you were wrong!!!
I (io)bevo, you (tu)bevi, he (egli/lui)beve, she (ella/lei)beve, it (esso neutro), we, (noi)beviamo, you (voi)bevete, they (essi/loro)bevono.
I wrote "you drink" and the program said I had the incorrect solution which was not true.
i had a simple typo,"driink" without realizing it, it has said ,"typo" and i got it right before, is this not a typo, prove me wrong,( its obviously a typo)
