Hello,

Could someone please help me with an Italiano question?

I want to say "have faith in me". I have been told it is 'fidati di me' but doesn't that mean 'trust me'? Could I use 'hai fede in me' or is that not right?

Grazie mille,

KK

Literally you should say "abbi fede in me"

Hi,
Etrusca is right: in this case you should use subjunctive (abbi), otherwise you would be stating the fact the other person usually trusts you (hai); as for your question, "abbi fede in me" is the correct translation of your original sentence, though "fidati di me" might be appropriate.

Cheers

Sarah
