In this lesson, we review when to use the verb “andare” and the verb “venire” in Italian. Both verbs involve movement from point A to point B, but there are subtle differences between these two verbs.

Two Main Takeaways

  • The verb “andare” is used when we’re talking to someone who is with us and is going to the same place as us, and when we’re talking to someone who does not go to the same place as us.
  • The verb “venire” is used to propose to someone to do something together, and when we’re going to the place where someone is already located.
