La coniugazione dei verbi essere e avere al tempo presente del modo indicativo:

io sonoio ho
tu sei tu hai
lui/lei èlui/lei ha
noi siamonoi abbiamo
voi sietevoi avete
loro sonoloro hanno

Ma come si usano questi verbi in italiano? Vediamo degli esempi:


Sono stanco/stanca
sono felice
sei intelligente
è bravo
siamo contenti
siete italiani/italiane
sono belli/belle

Stanco, felice, intelligente… sono aggettivi.



Ho fame/sonno/sete
hai fame/sonno/sete
ha  fame/sonno/sete     
abbiamo fame/sonno/sete
avete fame/sonno/sete
hanno fame/sonno/sete

Fame, sete, sonno sono sostantivi.

Osservate la differenza

1) Mario è stanco – Laura è stanc– l’aggettivo CAMBIA per il maschile e per il femminile

2) Mario ha fame – Laura ha fame – il sostantivo fame nelle due frasi NON CAMBIA

If you want more explanation and examples, book a lesson! I will be happy to teach you all the Italian expressions with the verb “avere”.

about me

I live in a town near Rome, the city that I love for its peculiar atmosfere and its precious heart. I lived in another fantastic city, London, for five years and it was such an enriching experience which I will never forget. I have in-depth experience teaching Italian as a Second and Foreign Language both in presence and online. Graduate in Italian Language and Literature in Rome at La Sapienza University, I have the DITALS Certification in Teaching Italian as a Second and Foreign Language by the University of Siena. I have taught Italian as a Second Language since 2003 in various contexts: intensive standard Italian courses, individual tuition, CELI and CILS Exam Preparation Courses, Business courses and online courses via Skype and have extensive knowledge of teaching adults of different ages, backgrounds and levels of competence. I'm passionate about my work because I love my native language and I also love the fact that people find Italian and Italy so interesting and beautiful. I think learning a foreign language is an exciting and challenging way to travel across a culture while enjoying yourself along the journey.
