Let’s go back to when we were little kids and our “mamma” and “papa'” would sing us a “ninna nanna” (lullaby) before we went to sleep: who doesn’t remember the sensation of falling asleep by the sound of a familiar voice? Today, Massimo is the little kid and Jane is the singing mommy… Don’t fall asleep yet! Let’s learn how to use the imperative form of verbs, used for giving commands, and other useful words and expressions.

  1. Ciao – I’m second generation Italian-American, and I remember my grandmother singing me lullabies in Italian. This episode brought back great memories of good times – thank you, and keep up the good work!

  2. Marvin, “riesco” is from the verb “riuscire” (to succeed). You could have used “potere” (can), but it would have been less accurate in representing the situation.

  3. My Grammy who was sicilian used to sing me a lullaby with a word that sounded like “nauni”. Do you know such a lullaby?

  4. Ciao, ho una domanda.
    When do you use Mi dia instead of dammi and what is the difference between them?

  5.  I am a new subscriber today and this is one of the first lessons I’ve tried. I really like the variety of exercises. I noticed that under the “Review and Expand Lesson” the audio and the transcript are out of sync.
    Thanks for the great site.

  6.  I would like so much to find the words for an Italian lullaby that begins (in Italian) “In a town (or village)…” and tells the story of a hunchback and or a shoemaker.
