ITALIAN VERBS: pronouncing COMPRARE -Imperfetto – Negative Statements

By Manu Venditti | Advanced

Jan 14

 

This is Lesson 10 of a Series, all focusing on the verb COMPRARE.


We are working with the Imperfetto, the past tense we use to describe:
– things in the past
– an ongoing action in the past
– habits in the past


Here are the sentences I use in this lesson:

1) DA PICCOLO NON COMPRAVO MAI IL GELATO PER MIA NONNA
(when I was young, I would never buy ice cream for my grandma)

2) DA PICCOLA NON COMPRAVI MAI LA FRUTTA AL MERCATO
(When you were a little girl you would never buy fruit at the markets)

3) DA PICCOLO MARCO NON COMPRAVA SPESSO LE FIGURINE
(When he was a young boy, Marco didn’t use to buy stick on cards often)

4) QUANDO ABITAVAMO IN ITALIA, NON COMPRAVAMO LA PIZZA TUTTI I GIORNI
(When we lived in Italy, we didn’t use to buy pizza every day)

5) QUANDO ABITAVATE IN ITALIA, NON COMPRAVATE LA PIZZA TUTTI I GIORNI
(When you lived in Italy, you didn’t use to buy pizza every day)

6) DA PICCOLI I MIEI FRATELLI NON ERANO BUONI
(When they were young, my siblings were not good)
