Hi,

To be polite, I know you need to use "lei" instead of "tu" as a pronoun like in French, but I forgot if you need to change the verb to the 2nd person plural like in French or leave it in 2nd person singular?

Thanks a bunch!(or rather, grazie!)

To be polite you have to use "lei" or "voi" and the verb is at 3rd person for lei and 2nd plural for "voi"
