We learn a foreign language in order to connect with the people of the country speaking it. We are challenged by new structures, new patterns, new vocabulary which make sure that culture comes to life. Whenever possible, we look out for reassuring similarities with the language/s we are familiar with. Such similarities are difficult to find. At times, words and expressions are misleading since their meaning unexpectedly differs. At times, it is the people’s customs and habits which puzzle us. This book attempts to straighten out some instances native speakers of English may find tricky when coming to grips with Italian.
