Can someone explain why we are using "ce" in "ce la faccio", for example? Why isn't it enough to use "la faccio"? I think it should be that way since "la" indicates "it". Would love to understand the use of "ce" more profoundly.

    Yes but they did not address why "ce" is in use. Another example is "ce l'hai", not necessarily "farcela". Why "ce"? And how to memorise or know when to use it? – LoveIsHere Mar 16 at 11:59
  • @LoveIsHere: Do you mean "ce" instead of "ci"? Or simply why is this pronominal particle in use in these expressions? – Charo Mar 16 at 12:19
  • Why do we use ce/ci + lo/li if it seems like they have the same meaning? – LoveIsHere Mar 16 at 12:21

    @Charo. Ok Thank you. I will read more about it. It is good to know it is more of a phrase and not very explainable... – LoveIsHere Mar 16 at 16:46
