Learning Italian vocabulary with Knotty Translations – Futuro semplice part 2

Dear readers and followers,

We are back after the party for the first anniversary of Knotty Translations This week, more about the simple future and some exceptions. I am publishing the video this week and a written post on culture and the language of tea next week because I wanted that to be the Christmas post. Therefore, next week the day will be Thursday to respect the tradition of a post on Christmas Eve. For this week, some exceptions on the conjugation of verbs in the future tense.

We will see the case of avere, but more verbs that follow that rule are: Cadere (to fall,) potere (to can,) dovere (to must, to have to,) vedere (to see.)

One exception is the verb Vivere (to live) in which the stress does not fall on the desinence but it still works in the same way: Vivere -> io vivrò.

Special cases are those in which the r doubles:

Volere (to want) -> io volrò -> io vorrò

Tenere (to keep) -> io tenrò -> io terrò

Bere (to drink) -> io berrò.

For this week it is all, keep being naughty, Knotty surely will!!!

Learning Italian vocabulary with Knotty Translations – Futuro semplice part 1

Dear readers and followers,

We are back with our videos after a while. As announced, the videos will be published every fortnight, but last time there has been an exception, with a written post on vocabulary. You can find it here.

This week we start introducing the simple future tense and we need to remember to always write the stress on the Italian words that end in a stressed vowel (parole tronche) to avoid funny things such as the one that I tweeted some days ago and that you can find here.

Enjoy and share the video and do not forget to leave your suggestions and feedback!

Also, keep being naughty, Knotty surely will!!!
