CBI 2.18 | A che ora sono arrivati?

So far we’ve been learning how to talk in the past by using the Perfect Tense with avere. In this lesson we’ll be learning about a specific group of verbs which use essere in the Perfect Tense. There’s something in particular we need to remember about these verbs, and all will become clear once you’ve listened to this lesson.

  1. Hello,

    I start with saying that I love your episods!
    I’m living in Sweden and always listning on your lovely episodes on my way to work.
    But unfortunately I think you Mark say wrong perfect tense to Ayla, you say : è andato bene? should it not be è andata bene? (14:30)

    Regards
    André Dani

    1. Hi André. Glad you’re enjoying the show. It depends what Mark is referring to: if it’s “tutto” then “è andato bene” is correct. If it’s “la lezione” then it would be “è andata bene”. Either way it would not be Isla who is referred to, unless the question was “did you go to the market?” for example. In that case it would be “sei andata al mercato”, the “andata” here referring to Isla. Hope that helps.
