I think Sono io asked this because of my shoutbox comment:Sono io asked about the verb GIOCARE
Italian Verb Giocare
The verb giocare means "to play," in the sense of playing a game or a sport. When referring to sports, it is usually followed by the Italian preposition a:
I bambini giocano sull spiaggia. (The children play on the beach.)
Mario e Carlo giocano a carte. (Mario and Carlo play cards.)
Paola gioca molto bene a tennis. (Paola plays tennis very well.)
opps, I'm late for my daughter's play
oops, Sono in ritardo per mia figlia un gioco
I looked up "a play" and got "un gioco"
My daughter was in a school play. Is my translation correct? According to the link Roby gave; "gioco" is the present tense, which I think fits here.
Grazie in anticipo
