Marika explains a great many things connected with the Italian language and culture. Geared towards beginners, the videos include Italian lessons, simple recipes, conversation, and lots more.
As promised, Marika talks about the verb tenere (to keep, to hold), beginning with its conjugation. Let's keep in mind that Italian tenses don't always correspond to the English ones. For example, the passato prossimo is conjugated like the English present perfect tense, but is used differently in expressing events in time. The imperfetto is translated various ways in English. See this lesson about the imperfetto.
We learn in this segment that the verb tenere can mean not only "to hold," but also "to keep" or "to have."
