44. It Takes Two To Tango (Listen Up & Learn)

  Level: Listen Up & Learn

LearnItalianPodOur friend and VIP Member Anna sent us a lovely email a few days ago. She says she’s currently taking an Italian class but she’s having some trouble with the Italian expressions of time that use the verbs “Metterci” and “Volerci”, which are usually translated in English with the meaning of “It Takes”. Then she says: “Jane and Massimo, I need you to cover this soon, as my finals are around the corner!” – You asked, we listened, Anna!

So here it is, the nitty-gritty of the important, must-know Italian verbs “metterci” and “volerci”. — Then as usual, after listening to the story, take the “7 Question Challenge” to test your comprehension, speaking, and grammar skills. Enjoy!
