Your second lesson: “Il verbo essere”

Posted by Monica Corrias on March 31, 2007

Hi people! Are you ready for your second lesson of Italian?

Are you already trying to speak Italian? My goal is to improve your ability to converse in this language.

I usually do that at Ciao Italia School and I’d like to do the same on web.

Buono studio! Speak Italian constantly, attend my lessons and you’ll see… 😉

    You can read the conjugation of Italian present tense of “verbo essere” at this page:


    There you can see some examples of its use and remember that we use “Essere” as in English “to be”: for example, I’m happy = io sono felice or I am Monica = io sono Monica. We use the form “there is”, “there are” = “c’è”, “ci sono” as you can see on page:


    The BIG difference is that we use 2 verbs (”Essere” and “Stare”) but in English you use only the verb “to be” for example you say “I am fine” but we say “Io sto bene” because we cannot use “essere” + adverb, and the progressive form in English is made with “be” and the present participle, but in Italian is made with “Stare” + present gerund for example “I am joking” in Italian is “io sto scherzando”. You can see that on page:


    Ciao, buono studio
