Hi everyone, and welcome to the Italian Podcast. Podcasts for learning Italian through natural and authentic content. My name is David, and this intermediate plot is a bit different from other plots because it is a story, Skilled pen (Or better, keyboard) by Erika, which contains some verbs that many foreigners often confuse: to be able, to know, to success, and “to be able” and “to be able”. I remind you that you can reread the transcript of this episode on podcastitaliano.com and find a link in the description of the episode in the app you might use to listen to. Let’s summarize Now briefly introduce how these verbs are used, and then let us listen to the story.
—— power Used when the possibility of doing something depends on us or other people or the external environment. I can I drive because I have a driver’s license. No smoking In the dining room. —— know It is used for skills, skills, such as riding a bicycle, speaking languages, painting, etc. “Able” is basically a synonym, but it is used less frequently and slightly differently, a bit like “can” and “can” in English. and so Drive, I learned. I am capable Drive. —— success Show the result: Maybe we can do something and we know how to do it, but can we do it? Are we successful? and so Drive but not I can Because my arm is broken. and so Speak english but can’t I can Do it in front of so many people. —— Have the ability to go Doing something is somewhere between “ability” and “success.” Sometimes it means an ability, sometimes it means a condition that allows us to do or not to do something. The light bulb in the living room is broken. You are capable Repair it? = Are you capable? It was raining heavily outside, Can you Driving in this weather? = Can you?Don’t worry about these explanations, it’s not important remember. Listen to the story and try to understand how each verb is used in the context.If you want, you can go back to the explanation of the verb and even listen to the story many times Internalization The use of verbs.get ready
