Italian exceptions

fare, dare, Andare, Stare

verbs whose stems end in -c or -g require a spelling change in the tu and noi forms. Add an h to the stem in order to maintain the hard sound of the c or g. Give Example, we are playing basketball GiocHiamo a pallacanestro

To create the tu and noi forms of most verbs with stems ending in -i, such as mangiare and studiare, drop the i before adding the ending. Give Example: Do you eat fish Mangi il pesce
You study well (exception) Studi bene
We eat at the stadium (exception) Mangiamo allo stadio
