Italian conversation

Ciao,

che cosa significa "Che ne dici di questo" e "Cosa ne dici di questo" in inglese? They both have very similar meanings, how do i know when to use "cosa" and when to use "che"?

Grazie!

Hi Rachelyeo,

Che and cosa are totally interchangeable synonyms (also the longer che cosa), so you can use what you like best.

Cosa/che ne dici di questo? means "What do you think about this?".

Hope this helps!

Hi Jemma,

Voglio means I want, and voglia means craving, desire.
(Io) voglio del cioccolato = I want some chocolate.
(Io) ho voglia di cioccolato = I have a craving for chocolate.
The sentences are synonyms.

Voglia can also mean birthmark, as in voglia color fragola, strawberry birthmark.

Andare in vacanza is what we call a frase fatta ("made sentence"), a constructed sentence that is very common in the language. The only accepted preposition is in here.

It can be either ho voglia di andare in vacanza or voglio andare in vacanza.

Hope this helps! :)
