In how many languages can you apologize?

Hi Graham,

thank you for the positive feedback!

The most commonly used plural person used in the imperative is the 2n person plural. You would need to use it when talking to more than one person. For example, if you need to interrupt two people who are chatting, you would say "Scusate...", which means "[plural you] excuse me."


The other two plural persons are less common (especially with the verb "scusare"), but they do exist.

Example with scusiamo (1st person plural): "Dai, scusiamo Paolo per il ritardo!" (come on, let's excuse Paolo for the delay)

Example with scusino (3rd person plural): "Cosa devono fare i professori con quello studente?" "Lo scusino" ("what should the teachers do with that student?" "Excuse him")


I hope this helps!


Cheers,

Valentina

Ciao!

Queste lezioni sono molto buone! (these lessons are very good!)

I particularly appreciate the cultural insights, which are so important for actually using the language.

The discussion below about indicative vs. imperative conjugation of scusare was very helpful as I was confused in the lesson.

One question I have is when would you use the plural imperative forms of scusare?

Grazie

Ciao Heng,


Those two are different.

"Non c'รจ di che" means "You are welcome!" and you can use it when someone thanks you with "Grazie".

"Non fa niente" means "It doesn't matter", and it's better to use it, only if someone is apologizing.

It's better not to mix them :grin:


Keep up the good work!

Grazie e a presto!

Ofelia

These are such good everyday phrase lessons. You explain exactly how to use the phrases, and it's easy for us to begin to have some idea of the grammar, too. Everyday phrase learning doesn't get enough respect. People seem to think it's equivalent to parroting phrases but they're indispensable. They give a lot of social confidence.
