Welcome to my post on Italian language. If you’re reading this then I would assume that you too are trying to learn the Italian language. There are so many methods to learning a language. I have gone through many different versions of italian courses on cds that I’ve listened to on my MP3 player and mobile. I also started to use Rosetta Stone, although I’m afraid I soon began to lose interest in that too. Throughout primary school, high school and University I studied Japanese language. Maori language as also compulsory at my school, and I picked up some Tongan language as a child from my family and time spent in Tonga. I also did an intensive night school course in Spanish before I did a trip around Spain. I also did one year of french at school and tried to pick it up a few years ago. However, now that I am married to an Italian, I now realise that I must focus on learning Italian. So to this end, I have now engaged my husband to teach me a couple of words every day that I will be posting on this blog.
|Smettila (Smet/ti/la)||Stop it|
|cattivello (cat/ ti /vel/ lo)||Naughty|
|Tu sai un grande cattivello (Tu/ sai/ un/ gran/de cat/ti/vel/lo)||You are very naughty|
You may think that the words I posted above are a little suspect, or silly. However, on a serious note, these words can be very useful to you if you are a girl, and you go to Italy.
