"Emozioni" - Emotions in Italian. Audio files and QUIZ Italians are famous for being passionate (passionali) and impulsive (impulsivi). Since Shakespeare’s time, foreigners in love with Italy describe our emotions in their own language. Do you actually know the name of the emotions and the relative aggettivi in Italian? We are going to study the emotions in Italian with the support of audio material and a final quiz. We can start sorting the the emozioni and the connected aggettivi by splitting them in positive and negative. Not surprisingly, most English adjectives sound like the Italian related aggettivi, but be aware of “false friends“, Italian and English words of the same origin, usually Latin, but different in meaning. The correct verb for describing an emotion is PROVARE (un’emozione). Provo amore per teTu provi una grande tristezzaGiorgio prova soddisfazione Sono innamorato di teTu sei molto tristeGiorgio è soddisfatto Please, now listen to the podcast and repeat. Use your space bar for pausing the audio and repeat Emotion Emozione
