A: Tu as the subject pronoun you (informal), Te used after a preposition, Ti as the object of the verb.
A: In English you have a preposition that you can put at the end of a sentence. But in Italian you cannot end a sentence with prepositions, we can only put them at the beginning of the sentence.
A: [email protected] = CHIOCCIOLA
A: PÌU means “More” (Ex: Pìu intelligente, Pìu veloce, Pìu piano, Pìu alto, Pìu bello) What confuses most, is when to say Di pìu and Pìu. But Di pìu is used when you want MORE of a verb (Ex: Devi studiare di pìu “You must study more”)
A: LI and LA both means “There” no difference.
A: QUI and QUA both means “Here” no difference.
A: Start finding out words that are similar between English and Italian. These are words in English that come from Latin. Words that are usually longer and have a lot of syllables Ex: Intelligent – Intelligente.
