Our Little Friends NE & CI

Several listeners (thank you Luis, Sandra, and Carmen) have requested that we dedicate a lesson to the hugely common Italian little words “NE” and “CI”.

Just listen to two native Italians speaking and good chances are you will hear the two little words “NE” and “CI” repeated several times. “NE” and “CI” are called “idiomatic” words because, even if they act as pronouns, they are particular to the Italian language and cannot be translated literally – and yes, they are a “must-know”.
