Lesson focus

Cinzia: The Futuro Semplice tense of all three conjugations verbs is realized by dropping the ending vowel from the infinitive and adding the appropriate endings.
Marco: just the ending vowel, not the whole last syllable as it would normally be the case.
Cinzia: Please note that only the first conjugation verbs change the last syllable vowel from -a to -e.
Marco: Here are the necessary steps to inflect first conjugation verbs, first, take the infinitive of the verb
Cinzia: for example, guidare “to drive, infinitive”
Marco: second, drop the final vowel
Cinzia: guidar
Marco: third, change the last syllable vowel to -e-, keeping the rest as it is
Cinzia: guider
Marco: fourth, add the appropriate endings.
Cinzia: that are
-ai
-emo
-ete
-anno
Cinzia: let us now take a look at the Futuro semplice of the verb nuotare
Marco: “to swim”
Cinzia: Io nuoter-ò
Marco: I will swim
Cinzia: Tu nuoter -ai
Marco: You will swim
Cinzia: Lui/lei nuoter-à
Marco: He/she/it will swim
Cinzia: Noi nuoter-emo
Marco: We will swim
Cinzia: Voi nuoter-ete
Marco: You will swim
Cinzia: Loro nuoter-anno
Marco: They will swim
Marco: Due to the change of last syllable vowel, first conjugation verbs whose root ends with the letters C or G add the letter H between the root and stem, in order to keep the /k/ or /g/ sound.
Cinzia: For example, pagare
Marco: “to pay”
Cinzia: Io pagher -ò
Marco: I will pay
Cinzia: Tu pagher -ai
Marco: You will pay
Cinzia: Lui/lei pagher -à
Marco: He/she/it will pay
Cinzia: Noi pagher -emo
Marco: We will pay
Cinzia: Voi pagher -ete
Marco: You will pay
Cinzia: Loro pagher -anno
Marco: They will pay
marco: Finally first conjugation verbs whose root ends with the vowel -i-, drop it before adding the endings
Cinzia: Let us see how this happens with the verb rinunciare
Marco: “to renounce; to give up”
Cinzia: Io rinuncer -ò
Marco: I will give up
Cinzia: Tu rinuncer -ai
Marco: You will give up
Cinzia: Lui/lei rinuncer -à
Marco: He/she/it will give up
Cinzia: Noi rinuncer -emo
Marco: We will give up
Cinzia: Voi rinuncer -ete
Marco: You will give up
Cinzia: Loro rinuncer -anno
Marco: They will give up

Marco: Before we go, we want to tell you about a way to drastically improve your pronunciation.
Cinzia: The voice recording tool...

Marco: and then play it back just as easily.

Hi Masami,


You are absolutely right: "parere" is from the second group, but it is irregular.

For example the present is: io paio, tu pari, lui pare, noi paiamo, voi parete, loro paiono.

This verb is almost only used in the third person "pare", meaning "it seems".


Unfortunatelly I couldn't find it in the PDF, to fix it.

Did you find it in another lesson?


Grazie e ciao!

Hi Marco,


I am enjoying learning Italian with you! Thank you for this great online course!


In the PDF, "parere" is categorized in the 1st group of irregular inflections. Why not in the 2nd group (verbs that contract their infinitive form, thus losing the last two vowels.) considering the root "parr"? What is the reason?


Grazie mille.

Dear Chriss,

You actually got the verbs rather well, let me give you another version of your comment.


Non avendo accesso ai ‘lesson notes,’ non ho potuto leggerli mentre ascolto (la lezione). Li ho provati con il Coreano e penso che aiuti.


A presto
