  1. che glielo preparo… I don’t quite understand this bit because I would normally translate it as ” I will prepare it for HIM??

  2. Angela, it’s “i will prepare it for YOU (you formal). Think of the sentence as “lo (il caffe’) preparo a lei (you formal)” — lo + a lei = glielo preparo — this is actually a great example of usage of object pronouns direct and indirect on the same sentence) — We’ll be talking more about this in future episodes.

    Michael – it’s fixed – thanks for pointing that out.

  3.  As always, another useful episode. I noticed 2 errors in the pdf file. In “voglio partire domani” “domani” is spelled “domain” and the future tense has “tu potrai” instead of “tu vorrai”.

  4. According to quiz #2 and 4, volere uses either essere or avere for its past tense according to the verb following it. Is it correct?
