Oggi vedremo qualche espressione legata al “mare”:
- Cercare per mare e per monti = to look high and low for
- Essere in alto mare= to be all at sea
- Promettere mari e monti = to promise the moon and the stars
- Essere in un mare di guai = a sea of troubles [tipica l'espressione informale: S'è cacciato (o ficcato) in un mare di guai = He's gotten himself into a sea of troubles]

How can I say in Italian:
- “Can you repeat that, please?” You have to say: ” Puoi ripetere, per favore?”
- “I’m not able to come” = non posso venire
- “This evening I have to work and I can‘t go out” = Questa sera devo lavorare e non posso uscire
- “Can you help me?” = “Puoi aiutarmi?
To say these sentences you need the Italian verbs “potere” and “dovere”.
I posted some useful sentences for you with Italian verbs “Dovere“,”Volere” and “Potere” in the blog-page “Classes“.
Potere, Dovere e Volere are modal verbs and usually they are used before a verb in the infinitive.
I hope you are happy to study and learn Italian language on line.
Take care and have a good time!
