Italian Lessons

October 27, 2007

While practising Italian conversations with mum:

Instructor: You will now have a conversation with a lady. She will invite you to lunch suggesting various times. You must always contradict her and suggest an hour later than she did.
Conversation Starts…A Man repeats what we’re supposed to have said after a pause.
Lady: Vorrebbe pranzare con me a l’una? Would you like to lunch with me at one o’ clock?
Man:
Non…alles due. No…at two o’ clock.
Lady: Non alles due, per favore. Alle quattro, d’accordo? Not at two o’ clock, please. At four, okay?
Man: Le quattro non va bene. Alle cinque! Four is not fine. At five!
Mum: Ivanga ellam saapta maadhiri dhaan!
Me: *Pause Winamp* Lmao! 😆

Besides all the kookiness, Italian lessions are molto bene! I do an hour of spoken and conversational Italian everyday and I’m hooked to it like never before! 😀

    LOL… I heard from a very reliable source (Russell Peters :D) that Italian is more of a gesture-ish language…?

    @sirpy:
    uh, they DO speak a lot w/ their body, but I assure you, speech is VERY necessary. 😛

    The only Italian I know for sure I heard was from Joey (and Rachel) swearing at Chandler on F.R.I.E.N.D.S and it definitely came with a hand gesture 😀 .
