I have an idea to learn better. I say a couple of things and you translate them. just the basic, the most regular things I'd say if I went to italy.
1) hello, how are you?
2) what time is it?
3) I'm lost, can you tell me the way to Italy street ?
4) how much is it?
5) nice to meet you
6) I want to order a cheese pizza
7) (taxi conversation) take me to italy street and Rodeo Drive please
8) bye bye, see you later (hasta luego)
9) how old are you?
10) what's your name?
I think that's enough... can you think of more useful phrases?
