Ciao: when to use it! Tips (1)

Parli Italiano?

English is hardly spoken in Milano. Oh dear, huh?. ;-) Nevertheless, don't let this deter you from visiting this great city.

You can pick up some Italian before your trip to Italy. Memorize common expressions and you should be fine:

Buongiorno........Good morning

Buonasera......Good evening

Buonanotte.......Good night

Buon pomeriggio.....Good Afternoon

Ciao......Hello/ Bye

Come ti chiami?......What's your name?

Io mi chiamo XXXX.....My name is XXXX

Da dove vieni?.......Where are you from?

Io vengo da America, Australia, .Giappone, Olanda.....
I come from America, Australia, Japan, Holland...

Parlo Inglese?.......Do You Speak English?

Si....Yes

No.... No

Un po'.......A Little bit

Grazie mille.... Thank you very much.

Grazie.... Thanks.

Per favore... Please.

Quanto costa?.... How much does this cost?

Non mi toccare!.... Don't touch me! (my first Italian words learnt) :-D

Mi porta il conto per favore?.... Can you bring the bill please?

If you intend to stay in Milan for a little while longer, then you'll definitely need to learn more than just the above words. You can call up the following language schools and enroll for an Italian course at:

Dante Alighieri
- Piazzale Cadorna 9 Tel 02 72011294
URL: www.dantealighieri.org

Il Centro Via Brera 11
Tel 8690554/ 8690754
URL: www.ilcentro.net

These schools are amongst the best places for foreigners to learn Italian.

If your company is willing to foot the bill for your Italian classes, you may wish to get a private tutor instead. You'll learn the language faster... and be more confident to speak Italian boldly. Senza alcun dubbio!

My company is very generous in this aspect and is picking up the tab for my Italian language classes.
