• Il verbo to be corrisponde al verbo “essere” in italiano. • Le forme contratte si usano nella lingua informale. La forma contratta you aren’t, he isn’t, ecc. è più usata di you’re not, he’s not, ecc.

to be: usi particolari • Diversamente dall’ italiano, per esprimere l’età in inglese si usa il verbo to be e la sequenza: soggetto + to be + età + years old (years old può essere omesso)

• Il verbo to be è un verbo ausiliare. • In inglese, normalmente non si risponde ad una domanda solo con yes o no: il pronome personale soggetto e il verbo ausiliare della domanda vengono infatti ripetuti: Are they Italian? Yes, they are. Sono italiani? Sì. Is she your French teacher? No, she isn’t. È lei la tua insegnante di francese? No. • La risposta breve affermativa di to be non viene contratta: Are you Canadian? Yes, I am. Sei canadese? Sì. Are we late? Yes, you are. Siamo in ritardo? Sì. • La forma contratta si usa solo nelle risposte negative: Are they from Newcastle? No, they aren’t. Sono di Newcastle? No. Is he the new student? No, he isn’t. È lui il nuovo studente? No.

4

How old are you? I’m 14 (years old). Quanti anni hai? Ho 14 anni. • Il verbo to be è usato per esprimere condizioni fisiche e stati d’animo; in molte di queste espressioni l’italiano usa il verbo “avere”. to be hungry / thirsty avere fame / sete to be cold / hot avere freddo / caldo to be right / wrong avere ragione / torto to be ashamed of avere vergogna di to be busy avere molte cose da fare to be afraid of avere paura di to be in a hurry avere fretta to be sleepy avere sonno • Il verbo to be è usato anche per definire la professione di una persona: My sister is an architect. Mia sorella fa l’architetto.

• Si usano that (quel, quello, quella) e those (quei, quegli, quelle) per indicare oggetti o persone lontani da chi parla.

• There is e There are traducono rispettivamente “c’è” e “ci sono”. • Si usa there is con i sostantivi singolari. Si usa there are con i sostantivi plurali. There is a pen on my desk. C’è una penna sulla mia scrivania. There are 25 students in this class. Ci sono 25 studenti in questa classe. • Nelle risposte affermative brevi non si usa la forma contratta. Are there many people? Yes, there are. Ci sono molte persone? Sì.

Quando si elencano più cose o persone, il verbo to be concorda con il primo nome dell’elenco: In my backpack there’s a torch, a book and my laptop. Nel mio zaino ci sono una torcia, un libro e il mio portatile. • There non si usa per indicare che una persona si trova in un determinato luogo in un determinato momento: Is Mrs Smith in? Mrs Smith è in casa?

• Gli aggettivi dimostrativi: – hanno la stessa forma sia al maschile che al femminile. This man is American, this woman is Canadian. Questo signore è americano, questa signora è canadese. – hanno la stessa forma per le persone e per le cose. This window is always closed. Questa finestra è sempre chiusa. That lady is Ms Smith. Quella signora è la Sig.ra Smith.

Osserva la traduzione di this e that nelle seguenti frasi al telefono: Who’s that? Is that Sam? Chi parla? Sei Sam? Hello, this is Mark. Pronto, sono Mark.

• have got è usato in inglese per esprimere possesso. We’ve got a big house in the country. Abbiamo una casa grande in campagna.

• I sostantivi che terminano in -f o -fe cambiano -f/-fe in -ves. leaf – leaves wife – wives

• Nelle risposte brevi got viene sempre omesso.

Irregular plurals

• have got è usato in inglese britannico, mentre l’inglese americano usa solo have. Nell’inglese americano la forma interrogativa Do you have …? è usata più frequentemente rispetto a Have you got…?

• Alcuni sostantivi formano il plurale in modo irregolare, conservando tracce di antiche declinazioni. Tra i più comuni: child – children person – people man – men woman – women foot – feet mouse – mice tooth – teeth fish – fish

! Attenzione a non confondere la forma contratta della 3ª persona singolare (’s) del verbo have got, con la 3ª persona singolare del verbo to be: Sue’s a vet and she’s got six dogs. Sue fa la veterinaria e ha sei cani.

Plurals

Imperatives • L’imperativo alla seconda persona singolare e plurale corrisponde alla forma base del verbo. • La forma negativa si costruisce ponendo don’t (do not) davanti alla forma affermativa.

• Il plurale dei sostantivi si forma, generalmente, aggiungendo una -s al singolare. book – books boy – boys

• L’imperativo alla prima persona plurale si ottiene mettendo let’s (let us) davanti alla forma base del verbo.

• I sostantivi che terminano in -s, -ss, -ch, -sh, -z, -x formano il plurale aggiungendo -es: glass – glasses match – matches wish – wishes box – boxes

• Si usa l’imperativo per: – dare un ordine. Stand up! Alzatevi! – dare istruzioni. Turn left and take the first on the right. Gira a sinistra e prendi la prima a destra. – fare richieste. Pass me the wine, please. Passami il vino, per favore. – fare proposte. Let’s go to the disco tonight. Andiamo a ballare stasera. – offrire. Have a piece of this cake. It’s delicious! Prendi un pezzo di questa torta. È deliziosa! – mettere in guardia. Be careful! Fate attenzione! – fare un augurio. Have a nice trip! Buon viaggio!

• I sostantivi che terminano in -o formano il plurale aggiungendo -es, tranne quelli che sono abbreviazioni o di origine straniera: tomato – tomatoes potato – potatoes photo – photos kilo – kilos • I sostantivi che terminano in -y formano il plurale in due modi diversi: – se la -y è preceduta da vocale aggiungono –s. toy – toys – se la -y è preceduta da una consonante, trasformano la -y in -i e aggiungono –es. lady – ladies

– davanti ai nomi di nazioni formate da diversi stati. the USA gli Stati Uniti the Netherlands i Paesi Bassi – davanti ai cognomi per indicare l’intera famiglia. The Simpsons are her new neighbours. I Simpson sono i suoi nuovi vicini di casa.

Possessive adjectives Aggettivo possessivo

Pronome personale soggetto I you

he she it we you they

my your his her its our your their

il mio, la mia, i miei, le mie il tuo, la tua, i tuoi, le tue il suo, la sua, i suoi, le sue (forme di cortesia) il suo, la sua, i suoi, le sue (di lui) il suo, la sua, i suoi, le sue (di lei) il suo, la sua, i suoi, le sue (di cose o animali) il nostro, la nostra, i nostri, le nostre il vostro, la vostra, i vostri, le vostre il loro, la loro, i loro, le loro

• Gli aggettivi possessivi indicano una relazione di possesso. • Gli aggettivi possessivi non sono mai preceduti dall’articolo determinativo e si trovano sempre davanti al nome cui si riferiscono: My pen is over there. La mia penna è laggiù. • Sono invariabili in genere e numero, ad eccezione della 3ª persona singolare dove si distingue tra maschile, femminile e neutro: Ann has her iPod. Ann ha il suo iPod. Her friends are in China. I suoi amici sono in Cina. Charles has his new bag. Charles ha la sua nuova borsa. • Le tre forme della 3ª persona singolare concordano sempre con il possessore: This is John. His sister is a student. His brother is a student too. Questo è John. Sua sorella è studentessa. Anche suo fratello è studente. This is Kate. Her father is an engineer. Her mother is a teacher. Questa è Kate. Suo padre è ingegnere. Sua madre è insegnante.

8

, Possessive s • Il genitivo sassone indica una relazione di possesso quando il possessore è una persona o un gruppo di persone. nome del possessore + ’s + cosa posseduta Jennifer’s brother The neighbours’ house

Il fratello di Jennifer La casa dei vicini

• Nel genitivo sassone il nome del possessore seguito da un apostrofo e da una -s precede il nome della cosa posseduta che perde l’articolo. That’s my father’s car. È la macchina di mio padre. • Nell’uso di questa costruzione occorre ricordare che: – ai nomi plurali che finiscono in -s si aggiunge solo l’apostrofo. Here are the students’ books. Ecco i libri degli studenti. – ai plurali irregolari che non finiscono in -s si aggiunge normalmente ’s. The children’s books are on their desks. I libri dei bambini sono sui loro banchi. – se più persone posseggono la stessa cosa oppure se il nome del possessore è un nome composto, solo l’ultima parola prende ’s. Mark and Helen’s parents have a big car. I genitori di Mark e Helen hanno una macchina grande. (Mark e Helen sono fratello e sorella.) Jane’s and Robert’s parents work together. I genitori di Jane e quelli di Robert lavorano insieme. (Jane e Robert non sono fratello e sorella.) •

Il genitivo sassone non si usa per esprimere una relazione di possesso tra cose. In questo caso, si ricorre alla preposizione of. Look at the roof of my house! Guarda il tetto della mia casa!


Asking and telling the time • Ecco alcuni modi per chiedere l’ora in inglese: What’s the time? What time is it? Have you got the time? What time do you make it? Che ore sono? • Nelle risposte si usa sempre il pronome it. What’s the time, please? It’s two o’ clock. Che ore sono? Sono le due. • Quando la lancetta dei minuti si trova nella metà destra del quadrante si usa l’espressione: minuti passati + past + ora It’s eleven past eight. Sono le otto e undici.

Invece, quando la lancetta si trova nella metà sinistra del quadrante si usa l’espressione: minuti che mancano + to + ora successiva It’s twenty to six. Sono le sei meno venti.

• La tabella riporta alcune espressioni utili:

07:00

It’s seven o’clock.

12:00

It’s twelve o’clock/noon/midday.

03:10

It’s ten (minutes) past three. It’s three ten.

09:15

• Si usa il Present simple per descrivere azioni abituali e per parlare di fatti sempre veri. I go to school every day. Vado a scuola tutti i giorni. Mice eat cheese. I topi mangiano il formaggio. • La forma affermativa del Present simple si forma con l’infinito del verbo principale senza to. • La forma affermativa è uguale per tutte le persone tranne che per la terza persona singolare, in cui si aggiunge -s alla forma base del verbo: Tom works in a factory.

Sara watches TV in the afternoon. Sara guarda la TV al pomeriggio.

– se il verbo termina in -y preceduta da consonante, la -y si trasforma in -i e si aggiunge -es. Se la -y è preceduta da vocale, si aggiunge semplicemente -s. My brother studies French. (➝ study) Mio fratello studia il francese. Tim plays tennis at the weekend. (➝ play) Tim gioca a tennis nel fine settimana.

• Nella forma negativa e interrogativa si usa l’ausiliare do.

Nelle risposte brevi non è sufficiente dire “Sì!” / “No!”, è necessario ripetere l’ausiliare do/does. Do they like maths? Yes, they do. / No, they don’t. A loro piace la matematica? Sì. / No.

Leggi l’articolo su Jasmine Stevens. Cosa ha intenzione di fare alla fine dei sei mesi?

Jasmine Stevens is 25, and she’s from Bristol in England. She’s got a very exciting job. What does she do? Well, she’s the Global Tourism Ambassador for Hamilton Island, a tropical island on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Her job is to encourage tourists to visit the island. She lives in a beautiful villa with a view of the sea. It’s got three bedrooms, two living rooms, and a swimming pool. ‘The furniture is really nice’, says her boyfriend, Mario. Jasmine’s bedroom’s got a big bed and a TV and there’s a huge TV in the living room. But Jasmine doesn’t watch TV very much, she doesn’t have time. Why? What does Jasmine do every day? ‘Well, it depends. Everyday is different. I get up at around seven; I swim in the pool, have a shower and have a big breakfast. I start work at about half past eight. I explore the island, and write about it; I’ve got an incredible computer. I write a blog and a photo diary, and answer my letters.’ That’s not all she does. Jasmine also talks to the people that live and work in Hamilton. And she works with local marine biologists – there are over 30,000 different kinds of fish on the island. There are a lot of animals to see on Hamilton, and Jasmine visits the parks and takes photos for her photo diary. Her favourites are the koala bears and the kangaroos. She loves animals and wants to work in a safari park in Australia when this job finishes. She doesn’t only talk to people on the island; she also travels to other countries to talk about her experiences. Jasmine laughs ‘I don’t work long hours – just two or three hours a day, so my job isn’t tiring! I’m happy. It’s the perfect job and they give me a lot of money to do it!’ Jasmine makes 70,000 pounds a year. ‘There are lots of things to do and see here. It’s a fantastic place. Come and visit me on paradise island!’
