Normally, the very first tough grammar point I touch with my students is the Italian present tense. It’s one of the very first complex grammar rules I have to teach.
You might have had doubts about it as well, and I cannot blame you. The first time you see a verb table with a conjugation in it, it can be quite scary.
However, as you know, we like to make things easy here. 🙂
So, I decided to break down the Italian present tense into three parts.
Italian verbs are divided into three groups:
- primo gruppo (first group) > ending with -ARE
- secondo gruppo (second group) > ending with -ERE
- terzo gruppo (third group) > ending with -IRE
So, in this video we’re going to have a look at the verbs of the primo gruppo.
You will find a video and, as usual, a game to help you practice these verbs.
So, are you ready?
Press play and then play the game. 🙂

Here you have a word grid. You have a few subjects with the infinitives at your right. Can you find the conjugated matching verbs in the grid? 🙂
