5 Introduction Part 4 Not all of the students have met each other yet. As they are introduced to each other, you ll learn to introduce someone and ask who someone is. You ll also learn about noun endings and the indefinite article which will help you work out the gender of a noun. The letter c features in this part. Part 4 3

6 4 I Primi Passi

7 Introducing someone You ve already met some of the students who go to la Scuola Media Leonardo da Vinci. Here they are again at school. Mario isn't sure whether Giovanni knows Gianna, so he asks Giovanni Conosci Gianna? (Do you know Gianna?). Conosci? Here are two short dialogues. In the first dialogue, Mario introduces Gianna to Giovanni. Ascolta! Listen to the first dialogue, Conosci Gianna?, on Track 1. At the same time, read the text below. Mario: Gianna: Mario: Ciao, Gianna. Come stai? Ciao, Mario. Sto bene, e tu? Io sto molto bene, grazie. Part 4 5

8 Mario: Giovanni: Mario: Giovanni: Mario: Giovanni: Gianna: Giovanni: Gianna: Ah, ecco Giovanni. Salve, Giovanni. Come va? Non c è male, e tu? Molto bene. Conosci Gianna? No. Giovanni, ti presento Gianna. Piacere, Gianna. Piacere, Giovanni. Sei nuova? Sì, sono nuova. Ascolta e ripeti! Keep listening to Track 1 as the new words are read out. Repeat in the pauses provided. ecco here is Conosci? Do you know? sei you are sono I am nuova new (for a female) sì yes 6 I Primi Passi

9 Ti presento To introduce Gianna to Giovanni, Mario said Ti presento Gianna. Use ti presento when introducing someone informally. Think about what you usually say after you ve been introduced to someone. Now look back at Conosci Gianna? and see what Giovanni and Gianna said after they were introduced to each other. Piacere Piacere means pleased to meet you. Let s practise saying ti presento and piacere. Ascolta e ripeti! Listen to the extract from Conosci Gianna? on Track 2. Repeat in the pauses provided. Mario: Giovanni: Gianna: Giovanni, ti presento Gianna. Piacere, Gianna. Piacere, Giovanni. There s another expression you can say when you re introduced to someone. See if you can pick out the expression in the second dialogue, Conosci Sophie?. Part 4 7

10 Ascolta! Keep listening to Track 2 as you read the second dialogue, Conosci Sophie?. Mario: Francesca: Mario: Francesca: Mario: Sophie: Mario: Ciao, Francesca. Come stai? Non c è male. Conosci Sophie? È nuova. No. Mario, ti presento Sophie. Molto lieto, Sophie. Mi chiamo Mario. Molto lieta, Mario. Benvenuta alla Scuola Media Leonardo da Vinci. Ascolta e ripeti! Keep listening to Track 2 as the new phrases are read out. Repeat in the pauses provided. è benvenuta alla (she) is welcome to the Did you find the other ways of saying pleased to meet you? Write them on the line below in Italian. 8 I Primi Passi

11 Molto lieto/molto lieta When introduced to Sophie, Mario said Molto lieto, Sophie. Sophie said Molto lieta, Mario. Molto lieto and molto lieta both mean very pleased to meet you. Why do you think they are different? Think back to what you learnt about Italian boys and girls names. What letters do they end in? Boys say molto lieto. Girls say molto lieta. This is because gender affects the endings of words in Italian. You ll learn more about this soon. Here is a summary of the expressions you can use when introducing someone. Gender is a term used in languages to divide nouns into groups. In Italian there are two groups of nouns: masculine and feminine. Ascolta e ripeti! Listen to the speakers on Track 3. Repeat in the pauses provided. conosci? do you know? ti presento piacere molto lieto molto lieta I present to you /let me introduce to you pleased to meet you very pleased to meet you (used by males) very pleased to meet you (used by females) Part 4 9

12 Let s practise introducing someone in Italian. Activity 1 Fill in the speech bubbles with the missing Italian words. Check your responses by going to the suggested answers section. 10 I Primi Passi

13 Asking who someone is It looks like Giovanni and Gianna have spotted Sophie in the playground. They wonder who la nuova ragazza (the new girl) is. La nuova ragazza Here are two short dialogues. In the first dialogue, Giovanni is curious about the new girl. He asks Gianna who she is. Ascolta! Listen to the dialogue, La nuova ragazza 1, on Track 4. At the same time, read the text below. Giovanni: Gianna: Gianna, chi è quella ragazza? Non lo so. È nuova. Let s practise saying the new words. Part 4 11

14 Ascolta e ripeti! Keep listening to Track 4 as the new vocabulary is read out. Repeat in the pauses provided. chi è? quella la ragazza non lo so who is? that (for a female) the girl I don t know Gianna doesn t know who the new girl is, so Giovanni sees if Francesca knows. Ascolta! Keep listening to Track 4 as you read the dialogue, La nuova ragazza 2. Giovanni: Francesca, quella ragazza, chi è? Francesca: È una nuova studentessa, Sophie. 12 I Primi Passi

15 Chi è? Chi è? means Who is it?. Listen to how Chi è? is used. Ascolta! Listen to Track 5 as Gianna and Mario ask who these people are. 1 2 È un ragazzo. È una ragazza. 3 4 È un bambino. È una bambina. 5 6 È uno studente. È una studentessa. Let s practise saying the new words you ve just seen and heard. Part 4 13

16 Ascolta e ripeti! Keep listening to Track 5 as the new expressions are read out. Repeat in the pauses provided. un ragazzo una ragazza un bambino una bambina uno studente una studentessa a boy a girl a baby boy, little boy a baby girl, little girl a male student a female student Let s practise using Chi è?. Activity 2 Advanced students may omit Part A and go straight to Part B. Part A Answer the question Chi è in Italian according to the illustrations. Esempio (Example) You see: Chi è? You write: È Sophie. 1 2 Francesca Chi è? Mario Chi è? 14 I Primi Passi

17 3 4 Giovanni Chi è? Gianna Chi è? Before you do Part B, check your responses by going to the suggested answers section. Part B Listen to Track 6. You will hear the speakers ask the question Chi è?. Answer in Italian according to the illustrations below. Repeat the model sentences after the speakers. Esempio (Example) You hear: Chi è? You say: È Sophie. You hear and repeat: È Sophie. You see: 1 2 Francesca Mario 3 4 Giovanni Gianna Check your responses by going to the suggested answers section. Part 4 15

18 Look at these nouns that you ve learnt in this section. ragazzo ragazza bambino bambina studente studentessa Nouns are words referring to people, places or things. For example, teacher, school, book. Think about the words above. How are the words on the left different to the words on the right? Write your answer in English on the line below. They have different endings. The words on the left refer to males. The words on the right refer to females. The end of the noun (noun ending) is different when talking about a male or a female. You might remember that Italian boys names generally end in o and girl s names generally end in a. Let s look at noun endings. Noun endings in Italian In Italian all nouns have a gender. There are two genders in Italian: masculine and feminine. An easy way to tell whether a noun is masculine or feminine is to look at the last letter. If a noun ends in o it is probably masculine. If a noun ends in a it is probably feminine. With nouns referring to people, such as ragazzo (boy) or ragazza (girl), it is easy to tell the gender: If the person is male, the gender is masculine. If the person is female, the gender is feminine. But, gender applies to objects as well, such as pens, trees and food. 16 I Primi Passi

19 There are some nouns that end in e and you can t tell whether they are masculine or feminine. As you learn what they mean, memorise whether they are masculine or feminine. You ll need to do this because there is no way to tell by looking at the noun. For example, lezione (lesson) is feminine and studente (student) is masculine. Activity 3 Fill in the summary box below. Check your responses by going to the suggested answers section. Part 4 17

20 One way of knowing the gender of a noun is to look at the article in front of it. The indefinite article You have already seen the Italian indefinite articles un and una. Both words mean a, an or one. Let s practise saying them with some nouns you already know. An indefinite article is a word such as a, an and one. It s a word that shows you re not referring to a specific thing. Ascolta e ripeti! Listen to these phrases on Track 7. They will be read from left to right. Repeat in the pauses provided. un ragazzo un bambino una ragazza una bambina Pause the audio and read the notes that follow. In the examples above, each noun had either un or una before it. Remember, they both mean a, an or one. Why do you think there are different ways of saying the same thing? Write your ideas on the lines below. Check with the answer at the bottom of the page. Answer: There are different articles for masculine and feminine nouns. 18 I Primi Passi

21 In the examples you just heard, which Italian indefinite article is used for masculine nouns? Which one is used for feminine nouns? Write on the lines below. Masculine indefinite article: Feminine indefinite article: Check your answer with the table over the page. Ascolta e ripeti! Return to Track 7 and listen to these examples. Repeat in the pauses provided. È uno studente. È una studentessa. There is another indefinite article used here: uno. Do you think it is used before masculine or feminine nouns? Cross out the incorrect word in the following sentence. Uno is used before masculine / feminine nouns. Part 4 19

22 Un is the most common indefinite article for masculine nouns. Uno is used for masculine nouns beginning with the letter s plus a consonant, such as st or sp. Look at the examples below. uno studente a/one student A consonant is any letter of the alphabet that is not a vowel. uno stadio uno specchio a/one stadium a/one mirror Summary of indefinite articles Indefinite article English meaning Use with un a/an/one masculine nouns uno a/an/one masculine nouns beginning with s plus a consonant una a/an/one feminine nouns 20 I Primi Passi

23 Let s practise working out whether nouns are masculine or feminine. Firstly, can you remember what two things can help you identify masculine and feminine nouns? Write your answer in English on the lines below. 1 2 In the next activity, pay attention to the noun ending and indefinite article. They can help you identify the gender of a noun. Activity 4 Write m or f beside each noun to show whether they are masculine or feminine. 1 un uomo _ 2 una donna _ 3 un bambino _ 4 una bambina _ 5 una ragazza _ 6 un gelato _ 7 una pizza _ 8 uno stadio _ 9 una lezione _ 10 un professore _ Check your responses by going to the suggested answers section. Part 4 21

24 It s time to show your teacher how well you can use un, una and uno. Go to the exercises section and complete Exercise 4.1. Now practise using the indefinite articles and nouns you ve learnt. Activity 5 This activity is similar to Activity 2, but in this activity you need to give more information about each picture. Advanced students may leave out Part A and go straight to Part B. Part A Answer the question Chi è in Italian according to the pictures below. Then write the English meaning underneath. Esempio 1 (Example 1) You see: Chi è? (Mario) You write: È Mario. Mario è un ragazzo. It s Mario. Mario is a boy. Esempio 2 (Example 2) You see: Chi è? (Sophie) You write: È Sophie. Sophie è una ragazza. It s Sophie. Sophie is a girl. 1 Chi è?

27 The letter c The Italian language is a fairly simple one to pronounce but there are a few combinations of letters that you need to be aware of. One of these combinations includes the letter c. So far you ve seen and heard two different sounds for the letter c. Ascolta e ripeti! Listen to the speakers on Track 9 read the words below. Listen out for the two different c sounds.

Ascolta e ripeti! Return to Track 9 and listen to the words below.
