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

ESSEREAVERE
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:

ESSERE + AGGETTIVI

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

Stanco, felice, intelligente… sono aggettivi.

 

AVERE + SOSTANTIVI

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 special atmosphere and its unique soul. I lived in another fantastic city, London, for five years and it was an incredibly enriching experience that I will never forget. I have in-depth experience teaching Italian as a Second and Foreign Language both in person and online. I graduated from La Sapienza University in Rome with degrees in Italian Language and Literature and I recived the DITALS Certification in Teaching Italian as a Second and Foreign Language from the University of Siena. I have taught Italian as a Second Language since 2003 in various contexts: intensive standard Italian courses, individual tcourses, CELI and CILS exam preparation courses, business courses and online courses via live video calls. I have extensive experience in 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 way.
