The content of this topic could be really hard to get for an english speaker but more easy for a German or Spanish speaker.
We are starting with Italian subject pronouns:
I io (I) noi (we)
II tu (you, informal) voi (you)
III lui, lei (he, she) loro (they)
Lui (you, formal) Loro (you, formal)
So if I say "lei è andata al mare" it means "she gone to the beach".
It implies that when we use the pronoun "Lei" (She) we talking about a feminine noun.
What if I address a person in a conversation?
Should I use always "tu" (you)? Doesn't work like this in Italian, it depends on the context.
We make an example of these situations:
I'm 36, so if I should have a conversation with a kid I would address to him with "tu"
"Ciao, come stai?" (Hi how are you?)
It's the same if I talk with people who are the same age as me or generally with friends, colleagues, relatives etc.
Things change when I talk to people who I don't know or with people older than me unless they are, for example, relatives.
The pronoun "Lei" for example is often used in job interviews , TV interviews, politics etc.
Summarizing you can say that using "Lei" is a good way to approach someone in a polite way.
Hope you enjoy it!
Hi there, today we talk about the verb "cadere" which in English is translated as "to fall out ".
The main meaning is just to fall out, but you can use this verb in different ways.
The sentence "cadere dal pero" (To fall out from a pear tree) means that you are very surprised by something that you don't know or don't remember at all.
"Cadere a fagiolo" (Falling out as a bean) means that something happens at the right moment.
Others way of saying with the verb "cadere" are very similar to the English ones
Cadere in una trappola =To fall into a trap
Cadere in piedi = To fall on your feet
Cadere in tentazione = To fall into temptation
And so on.
Try to make some sentences, and if you want to know more examples just ask me,you're welcome :)
