Presente indicativo, suffisso -ARE / Present for suffix -ARE

Hello there! Hope you had a great Carnival weekend. So as we saw on ARE / ERE / IRE - The three suffix used on all Italian verbs there are only three different ways to conjugate the verbs in Italian. Let see the Present of Mangiare (suffix - ARE).

:arrow_right: Mangiare (To Eat)

  • Io Mangi-o
  • Tu Mang-i
  • Lui/Lei Mangi-a
  • Noi Mangi-amo
  • Voi Mangi-ate
  • Loro Mangi-ano

As you can see, the separated suffix of the verb, are what change in each subject, and these are what you have to play attention. Let’s see how will it work for Parlare (To Speak).

:arrow_right: Parlare (To Speack)

  • Io Parl-o
  • Tu Parl-i
  • Lui/Lei Parl-a
  • Noi Parli-amo
  • Voi Parl-ate
  • Loro Parl-ano

Again, play attention to the suffix, and you’ll have all the other verbs :wink:

Why don’t you try to write some verbs that end with -ARE and make the Present of each person? Put down on the comments, let’s practice :nerd_face:!
