Sorry we couldn't find the first version of this popular Italian TV commercial, but the second one is also fun to watch. All we can say is: "Antò fa caldo!" http://it.youtube.com/watch?v=0Z9jbsf4Nj4

Hi C.Ofelt,


Thank you for posting.

The subject of the two sentences, "Quando iniziano le tue vacanze estive?" (When do your summer vacations start?) and "E quando finiscono?" (And when do they finish?) is "vacanze," which is commonly used in the plural form. That's why the verbs are in the plural form too.


I hope this helps!

Greetings all!


I am confused by the use of the second person plural when Peter is addressing Elena. Does the sentence assume that Elena is part of a group of persons to whom the question applies? Like husband and wife, or mother and daughter, or classmates? Is that then why "vacations" is plural, because the question applies to the multiple vacations of a group of people and not just Elena?


Thanks, and...

Keep smiling!

Carlo

Quando Lei visita a Napoli, non perdere la museo Cappella San Severo. La Cappella รจ piccolo ma la scultura รจ incredibile.

Hi Suzy,


In Italian the noun and the adjective referring to summer are different.

"Estate" means "summer" and it's a noun.

"Estivo" means "summer-y," "related to summer" and being an adjective can be connected to a noun and its ending can change according to that noun gender.


I hope this helps!

This lession talks about summer. My dictionary states that summer is estate and not estive. Can you explain the difference please.
