Common Italian Words and Phrases
Italian is known for being one of the most beautiful languages there is. It is the language of Dante and Da Vinci, and the direct descendent of Latin. When learning Italian, however, it might help to start with the basics.
When you meet people you will have to communicate with them, introduce yourself, and know how to ask and answer some basic questions. You may not be fluent yet, and you may not be quoting renaissance poetry, but at least you can communicate and find your way around, which will open up many doors for you when you’re traveling around Italy.
