How to say a few words in Italian?
When abroad I personally love to say a few basic words in the language of the country; especially the polite ones. So I’ll teach you here the basics.
Well to speak Italian, it is not hard: you have to speak with your hands! I might exagerate a little but you will notice it is not just a cliché: it does exist lots of different gestures with meanings! But for this, I let you have your own experience….
You all know at least one word in Italian: Ciao.
It can either be used when you meet a friend or to say to him goodbye.
Here is a list of the other useful ones:
Goodmorning /goodday= Buongiorno
Thank you (very much) = grazie (mille)
Sorry= Scusi (if you’re speaking to a young or a friend)/ Scusa otherwise
For those who like to take risks, you can try :
– at the restaurant : “Can I/we have the bill?”= “Posso/possiamo avere il conto?”
– “Where can I buy /find …. ” = “Dov’è posso comprare/trovare…? “
– “Where are the toilets? “ = “Dov’è il bagno?”
– “How do we go to…. ?” = “ Come si puo fare per raggiungere… ?”
Hope it will help you !
