Italian modal verbs: how can I use it?

Posted by Monica Corrias on April 28, 2007

How can I say in Italian:

  • Can you repeat that, please?”  You have to say: ” Puoi ripetere, per favore?”

and also,

  • “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!
