  5. Formal tense


Formal tense

I often get answers wrong because I am used to using the formal tense instead of the informal. If I type "suoi" instead of "tuoi" I get the answer wrong, even though I am only using the formal manner of address, which is what we normally use in public unless we are speaking to our friends or acquaintances. It is frustrating to be penalized for using proper Italian. Thank you.
