I will be in Italy for one week. I know this is not sufficient time to learn a language, but I would like to challenge myself a bit. I would like to know some useful and fundamental phrases I should learn in order to better communicate while on vacation.
it's a 1,000,000 dollars question!!!!!!
I'd suggest these few phrases:
"quanto costa?", how much does it cost?
"scusi, dove si trova questa strada/la fermata dell'autobus/ la metropolitana?", Excuse me, where is this street/the bus stop/the subway?
"cerchiamo un posto per mangiare/per dormire", we are looking a place to eat/to sleep
"vorrei della cartoline e dei francobolli", I'd like to buy postcards and stamps
"scusi, puoi aiutarmi?", excuse me, can you help me?
"vorrei un biglietto di sola andata/di andata e ritorno", I'd like a single ticket/round trip
I hope it's so help! They are basic but very useful; there are so many but it's impossibile to tell them: it's depend on your stay's contest.
Little trick but you know, I'm sure: translation software on you handyphone, there are so many!!!!
Thank you so much for the assistance!
