  1. ciao ragazzi! come va!? spero bene….prima di tutto voglio dire che sono un po’ confuso….che altri significati ha la parola “ci”?!?!..avevo pensato che il significato era “us/we” ( ci sentiamo)…

    lo puoi spiefare più!?….

    Ciao amici
    ci sentiamo
    buon weekeeennnndddd!!! 😀

  2. “Noi” is a nominative pronoun, while “ci” is a reflexive/objective pronoun. “Noi” corresponds to “we” while “ci” corresponds to “us,” “ourselves,” or “each other.”

    The particle “ci” is also an adverb and means “in questo/quel luogo” (in this/in that place).

    Examples:
    Sono stato a Roma e ci voglio ritornare quest’anno.
    (I’ve been to Rome and I want to go back (there) this year.
    Vado in montagna e ci rimango tre giorni.
    I to to the mountains and I want to stay (there) three days.

    The particle “ci” can also be used as pronoun with the meaning of “a ciò”, “in ciò”, “su ciò”. (to this, in this, on this).

    Example:
    Dante vincerà. Ci scommetto $1,000! (su questo fatto).
    Dante will win. I bet $1,000! (on this).

  3. capisco! :)…grazie mille amici!…certamente che io vincerò! :), e learnitalianpod.com anche! :)….ho una domanda per Jane, quale altre lingue parli!?!?..

    ciao ciao amici e learnitalianpod.com’s subscribers
