Grammar & vocabulary

In this lesson, we already use many English words.

Some, called “pronouns”, are for persons:

I                                     io

You                               tu

He / She / It                lui / lei / esso

We                                noi

You                               voi

They                             loro / essi

Some, called “verbs”, are for actions and situations. They change slightly for each person:

                      I              You           He/She/It           We           You         They      Translation
Be               am             are                 is                     are            are           are            Essere

See             see             see                 sees                see             see            see           Vedere

Many verbs change only for he/she/it: they have an “s” at the end.

He/she/it is the “third person”.

This is the end of the first lesson!
