Hey everybody and welcome back to my channel! In this video I will tell you some commonly used verbs in Italian. But before I start, I want to tell you where I found the information, because obviously I didn't make it! But I did a search in the spoken Italian database. This database is available on the internet, so i will leave the link here in the info box below. The first verb is 'affrontare'. You face a difficulty, a problem, anything. to face a challenge. It means to face something in English. The second verb is 'Alzare'. To raise something. I am sure that you know the reflexive form of this verb which is 'alzarsi', 'to stand up'. The third verb is 'aprire', Open a box, open the windows, open a shop, open a book, you can open anything. Then we have 'bisognare', 'the need to do something', it is an impersonal form. Then we have 'comprare'. Comprare, 'to buy', to buy a car, a house, a book, dresses, etc. anything. Then there is 'chiudere'. chiudere is the opposite of aprire, that we saw before. Close a shop, close an eye. "Chiudere un occhio' on something means to pretend not to see something, or ... 'I will close an eye this time', for example, you did something that you weren't supposed to do and you got caught. But the person you caught you 'closes an eye', in the sense that they won't take action on it. Then there is 'capire'. Capire is an important verb, because it helps you to express yourselves. So, 'I understand what it means, but i don't agree', for example. Capire, 'to understand''. Then we have 'andare'. It explains itself. It is one of the most commonly used verbs for movements. And it is irregular obviously, because how is it conjugated? I go, you go, he/she goes, we go, you all go, they go. I think that this is the most commonly used verb for movements: I go to school, I go to work. etc. Then there is 'lavorare'. Lavorare means 'to work'.
