Nationalities in Italian
Ciao! Tutto bene? In this lesson about pronouncing nationalities in Italian, you'll learn how to answer that all important question that you'll be asked frequently – Da dove vieni? – Where are you from?
No matter how good your Italian is, most people in Italy will know you're not a native speaker. As such, this is one of the first questions someone new you meet will ask you. You can answer this simply with the country you're from – Vengo dall’Inghilterra – I'm from England. But you can also answer by using the nationality form Sono inglese – I'm English. In this lesson we'll be going over the second way of talking about where you're from.
