Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Asia: Hi everyone, I'm Asia.
Daniele: And I'm Daniele.
Asia: And welcome to Must-Know Italian Sentence Structures, Season 1, Lesson 23. Describing Emotions.
Asia: In this lesson, you'll learn how to use a sentence pattern for describing someone's emotions or feelings.
PATTERN
Asia: For example, "You are in love."
Daniele: Sei innamorato.
Daniele: [slow] Sei innamorato.
Asia: The pattern for describing someone's emotions or feelings has 2 elements. First, the second person singular of the verb "to be."
Daniele: Sei.
Asia: Last, an adjective, in this case "in love."
Daniele: innamorato.
Asia: Altogether, we have, "You are in love."
Daniele: Sei innamorato. [slow] Sei innamorato. [normal] Sei innamorato.
Asia: Start with the verb “to be”
Daniele: Essere
Asia: conjugated in the second person singular in the present tense, “you are”
Daniele: sei.
Asia: This is followed by an adjective, either in masculine or feminine form according to the person being described.
Daniele: Sei innamorato.
Asia: So remember, to describe someone's emotions or feelings, start with “you are”
Daniele: sei
Asia: followed by an adjective that agrees with the gender of the person you’re describing.
Asia: Here's another example meaning, "You are sad." First, second person singular of the verb "to be."
Daniele: Sei.
Asia: Next, an adjective, in this case "sad."
Daniele: triste.
Asia: Altogether we have...
Daniele: Sei triste. [slow] Sei triste. [normal] Sei triste.
Asia: "You are sad."
[pause]
Daniele: Sei triste.
Asia: How do you say - "You are upset." To give you a hint, "upset" is...
Daniele: agitato. [slow] agitato. [normal] agitato.
Asia: "You are upset."
[pause]
Daniele: Sei agitato. [slow] Sei agitato. [normal] Sei agitato.
[pause]
Daniele: Sei agitato.
REVIEW
Asia: Let's review the sentences from this lesson. I’ll give you the English equivalent of the phrase and you’re responsible for shouting it out loud in Italian. Here we go.
Asia: "You are in love."
[pause]
Daniele: Sei innamorato.

Daniele: Sei innamorato.
