The Most Important Verbs in Italian


The heart of every language lies in its verbs. If you can correctly recognize and form verbs, you have already mastered the most important aspect of grammar.

These are:
 
  1. to have
  2. to be
  3. to go
  4. can
  5. to do
Learn these five Italian verbs in the present tense in all six conjugated forms by heart: I go, you go, he/she/it goes, we go, you (plural) go, they go.
