Ciao Maria Thanx for your help and support. I feel like I've jumped a level (no matter how small it might be) :-) The example for " while - Mentre" ha detto.... Aspettando il tuo arrivo, ho parlato con Maria....... Why "arrivo" = I arrive?? Parlando di Benigni, hai visto il suo ultimo film?....... again, why "visto" for "you seen"? Fran.

Ciao Fran, I'm glad to hear that your are enjoying your Rocket Italian and you're improving too!!! "Arrivo" in Italian can be either : -the conjugation of the verb "arrivare" Ex.: io arrivo=I arrive or -the word "arrival" Ex: arrivi e partenze=arrivals and departures "Visto" is the past participle of the verb "vedere". Unfortunately it's an irregular one so you just need to remember it. The conjugation of the past is very easy. Here it is : -Io ho visto =I've seen -tu hai visto = you have seen -lui/lei ha visto = he/she has seen -noi abbiamo visto = we have seen -voi avete visto =you (all) have seen -loro hanno visto = they have seen I hope this helps. Ciao
