Translations please!: What do these words mean:

presente
imperfetto
passato remoto
futuro
condizionale
imperativo
congiuntivo
congiuntivo imperf.

participio presente
participio passato
gerundio

I found these on a grammar website that lists all of the conjugations of irregular verbs. So, here is the link.

And once there are translated, could somebody please tell me what they mean? I know that they're grammatical expressions, and I'm too sure if I will understand them, Grazie!

He surely meant geround! :)

It refers to 2 things:

* name of the activity, like leggere - reading
Mi piace leggere tanto. - I like reading a lot.

* pariciple, like Andando a scuola, incontro Elena. - Going to school, I meet Helen.
