Being polite: sorry, please and thank you in Italian

How hard is it to use the right words for please and thank you in Italian?

Not hard at all 🙂 I want to be completely honest with you.

Expressing politeness in Italian is one the easiest things to do. You can trust me on that.

You might not believe me at first. You might also get confused after looking up some of these politeness words in the dictionary.

It’s true that some English expressions have more than one translation in Italian, but this is actually a blessing in disguise.

Being able to choose between more options, gives you much more freedom and makes you less stressed-out and anxious.

If you don’t remember one expression, you can always count on another one to say the exact same thing.

How cool is it?

Variety is not our enemy, but our ally. It’s there to make our lives easier and better. Especially when we have to do something so stressful like talking to other people in a foreign language.
