    I'm a student of Italian right now. So if you ask me, I'll make my best attempt for you.

    Re: Italian Language

    Thanks, Matt

    How about the same questions I posed for Pazuzu in the Irish thread, then?

    Thank You
    You're Welcome
    Good Morning
    Good Night

    How are you?
    I'm good ( or ) I'm feeling bad
    I'm happy to hear that
    What are you doing?
    Have fun!

    Re: Italian Language

    Thank you = Grazie. (Pronounced grotseeay.) If you want to be more thankful, then go for grazie mille. (I'm pretty sure it's mille, but I might be wrong on that.)

    You're welcome = Siete benvenuti when talking to multiple yous. (As in you guys are welcome.) In the singular, I'm fairly certain that it would be sei benvenuti. (Pronounced siehteh benvenootee and say benvenootee respectively.)

    Good Morning = Buona mattina. (I'm putting hyphens between the syllables for this so the vowels don't get all squished. Boo-oh-na motteenah.)

    Good Day = Buon Giorno. (Pronounced bon jorno.)

    Good Evening = Buona Sera. (This one is easy to pronounce.)

    Good Night = Buona Notte (Notte is pronounced notteh.)

    How are you? = Come stai? Or, Come Va? in the plural. (Come is pronounced cohmay. The others are easy to stay. Ai makes the sound the letter "i" makes by it self, as opposed to "ee", which you see often in Italian.)
    There are quite a few ways to reply to that. Bene = Good, while Molto bene = Very good. (Pronounced behneh.) Cosi-cosi = So-so, but I'm pretty sure the I's are accented. (Pronounced cozy-cosy, just with the stress on the last syllable since the i's are accented. I can't seem to find the cryllic characters, or whatever they're called. =/) If you are doing bad, you say Male, (Pronounced Maleh.) or molto male for very bad.

    I'm happy to hear that = Sono felice di sentire quello. The sentence structure of that can be a bit confusing. In Italian, when using the verb to be, essere, you don't need to use the subject pronoun like I, You, He/She/It, We, You, They. The thing is that the subject pronoun is useful sometimes, since both Io and Loro, I and they use sono for the verb. Alot of that kind of stuff is just in the context. Anyway, you just conjugate, so that's where you get sono. (I am.) It's pronounced sono felichay (in English ch is soft as in choo-choo, while in Italian it's hard, as in chiesa (church) so that's always something to be careful of.) dee senteeray quelloh.

    What are you doing? = Che cosa state facendo? As for the pronunciation, this is another good example of the ch thing I talked about above. It's pronounce kay kosa stateh fachendo.

    Have fun! = Abbia divertimento! This is pronounced abbeeah deeverteementoh. I could be wrong, but the more literal translation of that might be something about being amused, since amusing = divertente.

    Re: Italian Language

    i'm sorry for the absence but i've had a few problems with school

    amaethon you didn't write well in some parts.
    you're welcome="siete i benvenuti"(i prounonced e) in singular "sei il benvenuto" ("il" and "i" is the equal of the)
    good morning="buona mattina" is right but it isn't used,it's better "buon giorno"(good day) or "buon dì"("dì" is the part of the day with the sun;i don't know how to let you understand to prounonce.sorry)
    how are you?="come stai?" plural "come state?" (come va is the same of come stai)
    what are you doing="che stai facendo",plural "che state facendo"
    have fun=divertiti
    hello-bye bye=ciao(chiao)
    goodbye=arrivederci(arrivederchi)

    i have to admit that teach italian is realy hard
    maybe later i'll post something else

    ot amaethon can i ask you where are you learning italian?is a hobby or anything else?

    Re: Italian Language

    I'd love that. And while we're at it, I was wondering how to say 'I love you' in Italian.

    Re: Italian Language

    "I love you" is "ti amo", you can also say "ti voglio bene".
    I am italian, but I also speak english and spanish perfectly, so if there are any questions I'll be pleased to help.

    Re: Italian Language

    Is something like a fusion of my first and last names, but really altered, so people wont figure out my name (that would be bad).
    Anyway congratulations for this site, thanks to you I'm able to get my weekly dosis of naruto manga.

    Re: Italian Language

    yes,ti voglio bene is simply affection.ti amo is deeper
    che bello un altro italiano!(wow another italian)
    the most importan verbs in italian are "essere"(to be) e "avere"(to have).these are the presente indicativo(present simple)
    essere
    io sono I am
    tu sei you are
    egli/lui/ella/lei ha he/she/it is
    noi siamo we are
    voi siete you are
    essi/loro sono they are
    avere
    io ho i have
    tu hai you have
    egli/lui/ella/lei ha he/she/it has
    nio abbiamo we have
    voi avete you have
    essi/loro hanno they have

    egli and lui are masculine,ella and lei are feminine.lui and lei are more common.there isn't neutrer.it's used lui or lei if the thing is m or f
    loro is the same,it's more common

    per oggi è tutto
    ciao ciao

    (for today is all
    bye bye.
    oggi=today,tutto=all)
