Verbi Pronominali

Verbi Pronominali Flashcards by alex for didattichiamo.blogspot.com

Many Italians I know have complained about the confusing phrasal verbs in English, and while Italian is a little easier on its learners in that regard, there are still some verbs that have different, often idiomatic meanings based on the pronouns that are attached to them.  These meanings must be memorized (instead of rationalized) as each word often cannot be literally translated.

If you're unfamiliar with these verbs, you can check out a quick explanation, plus the translations of some of them in English on about.com. I've found though, that these expressions are best understood in context, so I created this flashcard exercise with sentences on side A, and the proper pronouns or combination of pronouns on Side B.  

Dai su! Ce la fai!
(Come on! You can do it!)
