sapere fare

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the verb expression sapere fare, which means to know how to do somethingSapere can be followed by any infinitive. For example:

sapere cantareto know how to sing

sapere cucire to know how to sew

See the expression used below:

Se non sai fare qualcosa, chiedimi! Altrimenti devo rifare tutto e non ho né tempo né voglia di passare ore a correggere il tuo lavoro. È sempre meglio se fai domande quando hai dubbi!

If you do not know how to do something, ask me! I otherwise have to redo everything, and I have neither the time nor the desire to spend hours correcting your work. It is always better to ask questions when you are not sure!
