1 Italiano Lezione uno Italian Lesson one Listen to the following conversation: Male: Ciao, parli inglese? Female: Sì, parlo un po di inglese. Male: Parla italiano? Female: Chi? Io? Male: No, non tu, lei. Parla italiano? Female: Sì, lei parla italiano. Male: Parlano italiano? Female: Chi? Loro? Male: Sí, loro. E voi?. Parlate italiano voi? Female: Sì, parliamo bene italiano Instructor: You have two objectives in this lesson. One, you will learn how to use verbs that end in the suffix are in the present tense. Keep in mind that there are Italian verbs that end in: are, ere and ire. There are also regular verbs and irregular verbs in Italian. In this lesson, we will only focus on regular are verbs. Your second objective in this lesson is to learn the subject pronouns in Italian. There seven subject pronouns in English: I You He She It We and They Instructor: The present tense is used in Italian in several different ways. One, it can be used to indicate an action in progress. For example: Male: Io parlo italiano ora. Instructor: Which means: I am speaking Italian now. Instructor: Two, the present tense can be used to show something that is done continuously or ongoing. For example: Female: Noi parliamo sempre italiano. Instructor: Which means: We speak Italian all the time. 1

2 Instructor: Three, unlike in English, in Italian you can use the present tense for an action that will be done in the future. For example: Male: Stasera, lei parla italiano al corso. Instructor: Which means: Tonight, she will speak Italian in class. Instructor: In these Italian lessons you will be asked questions by the narrator. Be sure to make your response before the Italian speaker. And then repeat after the Italian speaker, making sure that your pronunciation matches the Italian speaker s. Instructor: Let s begin by learning to use the verb parlare in the present tense. Parlare means to speak. Instructor: This is how to say "to speak". Listen and repeat. Female: Parlare. PAR-LA-RE. Parlare. Instructor: Again, how do you say "to speak"? Male: Parlare. PAR-LA-RE. Parlare. Instructor: This is how to say I speak. Listen and repeat. Male: Parlo. Io parlo. Instructor: How do you say I speak? Female: Parlo. Io parlo. Instructor: Can you guess which word means I? Male: Io. Female: Io. Instructor: It is not always necessary to use the word io or I in Italian. Io is usually used for clarity or emphasis. Instructor: Again, how do you say I speak? Female: Parlo. Male: Io parlo. Instructor: This is how to say You speak. Listen and repeat. Male: Parli. Tu parli. Instructor: How do you say You speak? Female: Parli. Tu parli. Instructor: Can you guess which word means You? Female: Tu. 2

3 Male: Tu. Instructor: It is also not always necessary to use the word tu in Italian. Tu is usually used for clarity or emphasis. Instructor: Again, how do you say You speak? Male: Parli. Female: Tu parli. Instructor: And now say I speak. Female: Parlo Male: Io parlo. Instructor: And how do you say You speak? Male: Parli. Female: Tu parli. Instructor: There are also two ways to say You in Italian. Tu is the familiar or informal way of saying you. And Lei is the polite or formal way of saying you. If you are not sure when to use tu or Lei, here s a good rule of thumb. Use tu when speaking to a friend or a family member. And use Lei when speaking to anyone else. Instructor: Considering that the objective of this course is to teach you common, everyday, spoken Italian, unless instructed to do otherwise, in this course you will use tu, the informal word for You. Instructor: This is how to say He speaks Listen and repeat. Male: Parla. Lui parla. Instructor: How do you say He speaks? Female: Parla. Lui parla. Instructor: Can you guess which word means He? Male: Lui. Female: Lui. Instructor: It is also not always necessary to use the word lui or He in Italian. Lui is usually used for clarity or emphasis. Instructor: Again, how do you say He speaks? Female: Parla. Male: Lui parla. 3

4 Instructor: Now say I speak Male: Parlo. Female: Io parlo. Instructor: And how do you say You speak? Female: Parli. Male: Tu parli. Instructor: Now listen to how you d say She speaks. Listen and repeat. Female: Parla. Lei parla. Instructor: How do you say She speaks? Male: Parla. Lei parla. Instructor: Can you guess which word means She? Female: Lei. Male: Lei. Instructor: Did you notice that we used the word parla to mean He speaks and also She speaks. That s why Italian speakers will sometimes use the words lui and lei for clarity or emphasis. Instructor: Again: How do you say She speaks? Female: Parla. Male: Lei parla. Instructor: Now say I speak Male: Parlo. Female: Io parlo. Instructor: And how do you say You speak? Female: Parli. Male: Tu parli. Instructor: Now say He speaks. Male: Parla. Female: Lui parla. Instructor: And how do you say She speaks? Female: Parla. Male: Lei parla. 4

5 Instructor: Now listen to how you d say You speak when using the formal or polite form of the word You. Listen and repeat. Female: Parla. Lei parla. Instructor: How do you say You speak in the formal way? Male: Parla. Lei parla. Instructor: Can you guess which word means You? Female: Lei. Male: Lei Instructor: It is also not always necessary to use the word Lei. Did you notice that we used the word parla to mean He speaks, She speaks, and You speak when using the Lei form of You. You also noticed that we used the same word for She and formal You. Therefore Lei parla means You speak and also She speaks. You will use the same words but address different people. Instructor: Again, how do you say You speak when addressing someone who is not your friend or a family member? Female: Parla. Lei parla. Instructor: Now say I speak Male: Parlo. Io parlo. Instructor: And how do you say You speak in the informal way? Female: Parli. Tu parli. Instructor: Now say He speaks Male: Parla. Lui parla. Instructor: And how do you say She speaks? Female: Parla. Lei parla. Instructor: This is how to say We speak. Listen and repeat. Female: Parliamo. Noi parliamo. Instructor: How do you say We speak? Male: Parliamo. Noi parliamo. Instructor: Can you guess which word means we? Male: Noi. Female: Noi. 5

6 Instructor: Now listen to how to say They speak when referring to a group of people. Listen and repeat. Male: Parlano. Loro parlano. Instructor: How do you say They speak when referring to a group of people? Female: Parlano. Loro parlano. Instructor: Can you guess which word means they? Male: Loro. Female: Loro Instructor: Now listen to how you d say all of you speak or You all speak. Listen and repeat. Male: Parlate. Voi parlate. Instructor: How do you say all of you speak or You all speak? Female: Parlate. Voi parlate. Instructor: Can you guess which word means You all or all of you? Male: Voi. Female: Voi. Instructor: How do you say all of you speak or You all speak? Male: Parlate. Female: Voi parlate. Instructor: It is also not always necessary to use the words loro, noi or voi. Instructor: Now that you have learnt how to make affirmative statements with the verb are parlare, let s learn how to make negative statements. This is how to say I don t speak. Listen and repeat. Male: Non parlo. Io non parlo. Instructor: Say: I don t speak. Female: Non parlo. Io non parlo. Instructor: Now say You don t speak using the informal You. Male: Non parli. Tu non parli. Instructor: Did you notice that in order to make a negative statement, you simply put non before the verb? Now try to say He doesn t speak. Male: Non parla. Lui non parla. 6

7 Instructor: Again, how do you say He doesn t speak? Female: Non parla. Lui non parla. Instructor: Now say She doesn t speak. Male: Non parla. Lei non parla. Instructor: Now say You don t speak in the formal or polite way. Female: Non parla. Lei non parla. Instructor: Do you remember how to say We speak? Male: Parliamo. Noi parliamo. Instructor: Now try to say we don t speak Female: Non parliamo. Noi non parliamo. Instructor: Again, say we don t speak Female: Non parliamo. Noi non parliamo. Instructor: Now say They don t speak. Male: Non parlano. Loro non parlano. Instructor: And how do you say They don t speak? Female: Non parlano. Loro non parlano. Instructor: And how do you say All of you don t speak? Male: Non parlate. Voi non parlate. Instructor: Again, how do you say All of you don t speak? Female: Non parlate. Voi non parlate. Instructor: You have just learned how to use a verb ending in are, parlare in the present tense. However, you only learned how to make statements with the verb parlare. Now let s learn how to ask questions with the verb parlare. Listen to the following conversation. Male: Parli inglese? Female: Chi? Male: Tu. Parli inglese? Female: Sí, io parlo un poco di inglese. Male: Parla italiano? Female: Chi? Io? Male: Non tu. Lei. Lei parla italiano? Female: Sí, lei parla italiano. Male: Parlano italiano? 7
