Italian Language Game: Potere Dovere Volere



This Quick Italian Language Game plays with the Italian Modal Verbs: Potere, Dovere, Volere.

Level: Elementary (A2)
Time to Play: 4 minutes
Review the present tense forms of the Italian helping verbs: "potere" (to be able, can); "dovere" (to have to, must), "volere" (to want).

Modal Verbs are used frequently in everyday Italian conversations. Since Italian modals are irregular, it takes practice to master them.
Note that the words for "I, you, we, they" are often dropped in Italian, unless they are needed for clarity or emphasis.
