A list of popular verbs and adjectives, are they correct?

Postby Uk_Polyglot » 2011-03-23, 2:30

Hi, I'm currently learning Italian and I made a list of some popular verbs and adjectives so I can learn them. I looked up the translations in online dictionaries and I'm not sure if these are correct. Could a native Italian speaker please tell me if these ok and in the right form so that they sound natural?

Also, there are some gaps because I couldn't find the correct words, if anybody can help me fill them in that would be appreciated.

Grazie!

Prego!
I wrote a wrong letter: to fit è "adattarsi", non "adattersi".
