Tenete in mente quello che vi dico.

(You) remember what I tell (you all).

Why tenete and not tieni for the “YOU”

I reckon it's because: (voi) tenete rather than (tu) tieni; i.e. you all or you singular.

Clever clogs you. Now, why didn't I think of that. Have a great evening.

Hi ChrisM108

Was doing the transfer org lessons. Thank you so much. My first reaction is to write it down, my preferred learning style. But this is so much better, as really makes me think about the logic of language, as well as not doing it by rote, but really thinking it through. I find with Rocket it can be by rote sometimes and I am not thinking through it or the logic. 

Hence missing the whole “ Voi tenete ”

Should you come across anything else helpful, please let me know

Thanks, sebongela.  To be honest, Language Transfer is the only extra resource I have discovered over three languages over the years that I consider to be out of the ordinary.  Videos and podcasts, ebooks etc, are useful but not extraordinary.  Rocket is the best core product; LT is the best supplemental one.  

A presto

What is Language Transfer?

Here you go: https://www.languagetransfer.org/italian  No note taking; just listen and absorb the pattern and logic of Italian.  I've not encountered anything else like it over many years of language learning, and I think it's excellent as a supplemental tool to Rocket.

Hi CE Hartman

It is an amazing resource. Short and sweet each lesson, makes you think on your feet too. Ha then maybe one day I will be able to overtake you on the points. I live in hope. Makes me smile even thinking about it ever the optimist. Happy learning
