    (Native Italian Recording) Making Plans

    Ciao mia cara,

    Come stai? È veramente un sacco che non ci sentiamo. Senti, mi sei venuta in mente perché ho sentito che hanno aperto un nuovo locale che sembra molto carino vicino Piazza della Repubblica e che stanno facendo degli aperitivi promozionali. Insomma si prende un drink, si mangia qualcosa, e costa sette euro ma mi hanno detto che il cibo è molto buono.

    Sexy Phrases to Seduce Your Italian Lover

    All in all, we’ve really done a thorough job of covering love. But, love being how it is, there is always more to say about it.

    So, this time around, we (that is, Rachel, Carlotta & I) thought we would make this list a little steamier.

    False Friends in Italian

    False Friends in Italian

    There have been many a time where I’ve guessed a word relying solely on English and have added an Italian ending… and I’ve been right.

    After Rachel wrote this article with 8 swear words to add sass to your Italian vocabulary, we thought it would only be fair to follow up with another list of insults.

    They range from affectionately rude (like to tease your friends) all the way to when you’re really angry, or when you’re incazzato nero (totally pissed off).

    How to Order Pizza and Gelato in Italian

    I really like pasta (cacio e pepe is my favorite), gelato (fragola, every day all day), and cheese (pecorino forever and ever), but pizza? I love pizza.

    For the first few weeks that I lived in Rome, the only people I knew were the ones who sold pizza. (If you’re ever in Monteverde in Rome, my favorite pizza al taglio shop is the one on Viale Villa Pamphili.)

Enjoying your podcast

I am a native Spanish speaker that loves the Italian language. It feels more fun to learn Italian with your lessons. It was very helpful to review confusing words episode from English to Italian like sensible versus sensitive. Thanks.

Could not be more fantastic

This podcast could not be more fantastic. It’s just what I needed and haven’t been able to find: common phrases and nuances of the language. The host speaks so eloquently and clearly, both in English and Italian, and has a delightful personality and inviting & enthusiastic attitude.
