    0_0 I just started Italian last week, but I'm catching on pretty fast, so I figured I'd share some basics. I'm throwing in some music terms too, since I'm a band nerd.

    Ciao: (Pronounced "Chow") Hello. Good-bye.
    Salve: (Pronounced "Salveh") Hello, but more formal.
    Buon giorno: (Pronounced "Bon jorno") Good Morning, or Good Day.
    Come stai: (Pronounced "comeh stai") How are you? Similarly, "Come va" means "How's it going?"'
    Molto bene: (Bene is pronounced "behneh") Very well.
    Non c'? male: (Pronounced "non chay maleh") Not bad.
    Cos?-Cos?: (Pronounced "cozy-cozy") So-so.
    Tempo: Time
    Grazie: Thank you.
    Grazie mille: Thanks a million.
    Mi chiamo ___: (Pronounced "me kiamo") My name is ______.
    A domani: I'll see you tomorrow.
    A presto: I'll see you soon.
    Andare e l'inferno, pazzo il pensionato: Go to hell, crazy old man. (I think.)
    Forte: Strong
    Alto: High
    Su!: Come on!
    Subito: Immediately. (As in subito piano; an immediate quiet in musica la teoria. ;))
    Il sud: South (lol.)
    Mezzo: Half (Half forte, half piano.)
    Peccato!: Too bad!
    La Tromba: Trumpet

    Haha. Okay, so I looked some up. But alot I already taught myself. 0_0

    Considering you started last week, you're doing fairly well.

    Considerando che hai cominciato la scorsa settimana, ti stai comportando decisamente bene.

    "Mi chiamo" = "I'm called". "My name is" = "Il mio nome ?".

    "Go to hell, crazy old man" = "V? all'inferno, vecchio pazzo".

    Those are technically "the trumpet" and "the south". "Il/la" are articles, "la" is used for female subjects, "il/lo" for male ones.

    BTW - If you need help about Italian stuff feel free to ask me here. ;)

    the first word maybe is "quando", which means "when", but the remaining one don't means nothing :p

    not completely correct

    ho bisogno di parlare la lingua

    which means "i need to speak the language"
