Buongiorno, cominciamo!

The best thing to do, when learning a new language (in our case Italian), is to start speaking that language right away. Please read the dialogue below in Italian and try to derive the English meaning of the very new and unknown Italian words from the English translation on the right side.

Mrs. Alberti is talking to Francesco, one of her students. Read the dialogue aloud to yourself.
