In this, our first video episode of Radio 708, PC Michael sits down with our students to teach them the basics of Italian. Michael is from the UK, but he has Italian roots. He is a great teacher, but nonetheless our attentive students realize that mastering the unique rhythms and tongue rolls of Italian takes more than just a few minutes of practice. The result is a very entertaining language lesson focusing on such essential vocabulary as how to ask a girl out on a date, how to order wine in a restaurant, and how to get a discount when out shopping.

Here are some of the key phrases, so that you can practice along with the students.

Ciao, mi chiamo…
Hello, my name is…

Senti, vorrei prendere qualcosa da mangiare stajera?
Listen, would you like to grab something to eat this evening?

Questo vino e buonissimo!
This wine is very good!

Scusi, mi dai un altro?
Excuse me, may I have another?

Quanto costa?
How much is it?

Please enjoy, and practice along with the students so that the next time you find yourself in Rome, you can take a local on a date and buy them a discount ice cream.

Many thanks to Michael, who can still be found in the CILL every Tuesday, and all the students involved! Until next time, Ciao!

The students are:

CHOW Yu Lam, Kate (CDM)

YIM Hoi Ki, Jenny (CDM)

WONG Cho Kit, Alex (BA)

CHANG Ka Hei, Hei (MIT)

YAU Tsz Tung, Hugo (MIT)
