16. Whose Turn Is It Tonight? (Upper Intermediate)

LearnItalianPod Learn Italian with LearnItalianPod. Episode #16 of the “Upper-Intermediate Level Series” is entitled “Whose Turn Is It Tonight?” – Italo and Lucia just finished dinner in their house in Milan. It’s time to do the dishes: whose turn is it to do it tonight? Italo says Lucia, and Lucia says Italo… but someone has got to do it! How to decide whose turn is it? Easy: with the good old “pari o dispari” (even or odd) game! So, let’s hear how to make quick decisions in a very democratic way by playing the old “odd or even” game. In doing so, we’ll learn how to do some quick math and, on the grammar section, we will finish reviewing the comparatives, with the so-called “comparatives of equality”. Enjoy!

  1.  Hi,

    I guess “Ho lavato i piatti is correct. Which grammar rule applies in the sentence “Io li ho lavati l´ultima volta”?



  2. “Io li ho lavati l’ultima volta”
    One of the four DIRECT object pronouns (lo, la, li, le) that requires the ending of the past participle to change – to agree in gender and number with the DIRECT PRONOUN. This rule is only applied if the pronoun is located before the verb group and of course that you are using the past participle (lavato).

    > Li ho mangiati. [i ravioli]
    > Le ho viste ieri. [le ragazze]
    > L’ho sentito. [il rumore]
    > L’ha comprata. [la macchina]

  3.  I thought that the translation for, “Mi fa piacere,” was Can you do me a favor?” Which translation is correct?
