Italian verbs are divided into 3 patterns of conjugation, following their infinitive form:

  1. -are (examples: parlare, abitare, studiare,etc…)
  2. -ere (examples: vedere, credere, etc…)
  3. -ire (dormire, partire, venire, etc…)

To conjugate a verb we use the same stem for all the declination forms and we add the endings of the present tense.

Let’s learn numbers

In Italian there is a unique number from 0 to 19.

1-1-300x216

For the numbers in the twenties, thirties, forties and so on, just add the number to the tens. There are only 3 exceptions:

numeri

  1. when you add 1 (21, 31, 41, etc..)
    for these numbers drop the final vowel. Examples:
    20 vent(i) + 1 uno = ventuno (not ventiuno)
    30 trent(a) + 1 uno = trentuno (not trentauno)
    40 quarant(a) + 1 uno = quarantuno (not quarantauno)
    and so on…
  2. when you add 8 (28, 38, 48, etc..)
    for these numbers drop the final vowel. Examples:
    20 vent(i) + 8 otto = ventotto (not ventiotto)
    30 trent(a) + 8 otto = trentotto (not trentaotto)
    40 quarant(a) + 8 otto = quarantotto (not quarantaotto)
    and so on…
  3. When you add 3 tre, -e takes an accent.
    ventitré, trentatré, quarantatré, cinquantatré, etc…
