talk to me! elementary level


Recommended Posts

Ok, today was my last final of spring semester. I have to wait all summer, before my second italian class. I DO NOT want to lapse. So please forgive me in advance. I will be honest, I will respond in bad elementary italian as I keep myself up to date with my textbook and online app options.

 

Topics we covered to help you talk to me in italian and (help me respond):

basics verbs past and present

basic vocab food time

weather

greetings

among a few. Think level 5 in Duolingo. 

Sadly think like you are speaking to a kid. LOL and a child probably knows more than me in Italy.

 

So here's what I promise: I won't use translation unless I'm utterly confused. I may reply wrong. 

Why? I found that I can read semi well and understand. Listening and responding especially written is where I suffered this semester. My responses were so basic they resulted in "I like the color green" or "I like dogs". 

I also noticed that I get confused while watching Italian movies. So I know you all can help me and hopefully be tolerable of my bad responses. Hahahah who wants to start?

I'd love to help you with italian. We can start from a little conversation and we can go forward, when you'll feel more confident. I can give you a little advice about movies in italian: Try to watch them with english subtitiles the first time, and then watch them again with italian subtitles. Trust me, it will be a huge help, I did it when I was learning english.

So, let's start with some basic conversation. :)

Ciao, come stai?

Quanti anni hai?

Sei mai stata/o in Italia?

Ciao! Mi chiamo Arty or Artemio in Italiano. Ho 21 anni e sarebbe 22 in Aogosto. Ho passato l'esame statale di Italiano all'universita e ho preso "bene". Vorrei continuare a parlare con la gente italiana.

La giusta frase è: "Ho 21 anni e ne compio 22 ad Agosto"
Per dire quanti anni fai il verbo corretto è "compiere" (gli anni) :)

Spero di esserti stata d'aiuto! :)

Per le città si scrive "a Torino" e non In, per gli stati/nazioni puoi scrivere "In" (ad esempio: "In Italia"). Vieni presto in Italia, ci sono molti posti belli!
Comunque nel tempo libero mi piace guardare moltissime serie tv :D e uscire con i miei cani. E tu che cosa fai NEL tuo tempo libero?
