Italian: Phrases > Simple conversations

The sentences presented in this section will help you with the most basic expressions in Italian, such as "good day" and "thank you". It will certainly not be enough in order to start a conversation in Italian, however being able to say a few words in the country's native language will evoke sympathy and understanding.

Some people in Italy speak English as a second language quite well, we still recommend to buy a language course before traveling.
