1. Greetings: Journal. Senorita Senorita Cats and I got seven venality. Welcome to mate Allen Kruse. I hope you will enjoy it. It At the end of discuss you will be able to present yourself Say your name where you come from, a world you are And where do you live? And let's get started. My name is Giuliana and I am, as you probably already guessed primitively I currently live in or strap. Please don't mistake in real Australia and I work with students that need help learning Italian. It's cool. I already worked with all girls and it was so much fun. So I thought, Why don't you chalan? And here I am in this class, you're going to learn how to present yourself in Italian and some basic creme. Oh, yes, I know, but it still will be fun. You can begin with greeting other students in the project section. Are you watching the Speedo in the morning? So say bon giorno. Is it 19 your time zone? Then try Ghana Sierra, Are you going to bed? What? I'm not You just want to say hi Se child or Salva and tell us what Italian words you already know I hope you enjoyed this video. Why your practices? I say to you Arab identity. That means good bye. See you in the next one. 2. What’s your name?: child I got It has come back in this video. You're going to learn hard to present yourself to others. I am sure you have already heard a few Italian names. But how do you know if we are talking about a man? Are all women? It is simple names demands wouldn't be are female lease for example Giuliana Medea on uh Giuseppina Rosa. Angela Francesca Name stood and wouldn't Oh are male names, for example Giuliano model Antonio Luigi Carlo Angela Francesco. But what is with names did and ridden E or an I. Most of them are made knees, for example Juice it but Salvatore Michaela Giovanni. But he's a really few. So you can remember name did and wouldn't all our meal names and names that and wouldn't aid are female names. Try to transform your name in an Italian name If you're no sure, try using a name, translator or line or ask me in the comments section No, How do I say my name is? It's me camel and then you need than me stands for the my and Camel is the present tense from the form off the web Cam RC That can be translated with Toby named So if you were trying to translate word by word you would have something like I am named. Maybe you already saw that the I stands in brackets. This is because in Italy you don't need toe. Always say who is the subject off the freeze? Who is making the action? This means that you don't need toe. Always say that I I'm doing something. For example, if I say you are beautiful in Italian, it is enough If you see are beautiful because the different forms off the Arab are so specific that you already know if I'm talking about me or she are you and you know how much you telling just to talk? We don't have time for so many words, I notice it is. This is a lot to remember But don't worry, you won't need it yet. I just wanted you to hear it. So you will already be familiar with it when I bring it up in another class. So it to someone me, Kalma Giuliana means my name is Julian. You know that I am a woman because my name ends. Read, um, eight male names ans written or In few cases we didn't e or an I. But how do you ask other people about Johnny? Just ask it to that means And you tell us in the project section what your name is and ask other about their name. So the last recap, Mickey Ammo. Giuliana it to Thanks for watching. Are you there? 3. Where are you from?: child I got Welcome back in this media. You're going to learn how to say where you come from. To do so, we have to learn first develop s its or to be. We start with opponents. You're to Louis Les. No, we boy Loro, that corresponds to I you he she maybe you notice that we don't have an it. We prefer to truce between May and the female birds. Then we have we you on day. So Esiner works like this E Osuna to say Louis Air Les Noisy ammo boy. See it, Laura? So no, that means I am. You are. He sees she sees we are you are they are You can see that the words are different for each person except for the first and the last one. So you can see it that when I say salmon, I know that I am talking about us. I don't need to say Newey, but I can if I want to. For this exercise, we Onley need the first person your soon and then you nationality In my case, it's Italian. So it is. You're so no Italiana. Note that a word ends with an aide because I am a woman. If a man says it, it would and wouldn't. Oh, as we learned in the lesson before. And that would be You're sooner, Italiano. I have here a few example Off nationalities. Americano Americana, Australia. No. Australia H Siano, A Jit Seanna Messi Cano may see Khanna Bracciano, Coriander, Coriander Argentino, Argentina Chileno She leaner Russo Roofs Graco Grey Cup We have also, if your worst that end wouldn't eat. This remains the same for men and women. For example, a man say's you also know in Liza and a woman Saiz, you're so no in Lisa Inkley, sir, in police, Your landing said You're Lundy said Orlandi. Sir. All undies. If England, he said. Finland, Isa nor Biggie said, nor veggies. Jeannie's Jeannie's Frenchies, Frenchies, Porto Keisser for two days can not decent cannot decide. That was my lesson for today. Right in the project section your name and your nationality, any talent? Of course, If you couldn't find your nationality, just ask in the comments section or try to find it on an all in dictionary. But don't forget to post it here as every kept. We know how to greet people say our name and nationality and how to ask him. And you show me camel Giuliana So no italiana it to You can connect the true phrases reading e that means and dark of use it with their air from Louis air. That means he is the finished product would be show Mickey Amara Juliana IHS Sooner Italiana it to the male Burson would be chow me Cam Adriano s Uno Italiano A true thanks for watching at 50. 4. What do you do?: told I got C. Welcome back in this video, you're going to learn how to say what you do for a living. What your profession is to do. So we need again s it? Can you remember what forms they are? Yo, Sona to say Louis Lay noise. Samel boy. See it, Laura Soon? No. We need our profession. We stayed in the lesson before that Words that ends with an o. R. Male Words and words that answered and a are female words. Now there are a few exceptions and a lot of them off professions. But don't worry. We will see them together to make it a little easier. I made a table that we're going to feel together after the video. You can dollar to table and try to fill it by yourself for the example. I choose two names. Domenico, that's the name off my brother and Giuliana my name. So did you know if you are talking about a man or a woman? Artista Artista Jordan. Analista Jordan Analista dentist. Sta dentist Sta Regista Regista. Okay, cool car. Mechanical mechanical. Open your hope. It ia either Alico Hydraulic Postino. Christina Abukhater Abukhater. Our kidded toe our kid Eto. These are the corresponding worlds in English. We have artists journalist, dentist, director, cook, mechanic, laborer, lumber postman, lawyer and acting. Now a few other words we have again are two persons to me. Nickel and Adriana made it cool. Medical infinitum Year Infirm era Peru Kierra Peru Kierra Contented Can Tanti Profits soared. Profess Saurus Comedy it it Comet Yetta A story at three. Chip Don't Tour door tourists did it toe. Direct creature Ingenieria engineer, student student is TSA. This corresponds to the English words doctor, nurse, hairstylist, singer, professor, waiter or waitress, actress, director, Dr, executive, director, engineer and student noted some words like medical engineer or architect. Toe don't have a female version, but just they're still working on this in Italian. So maybe we have soon medical other words like Artista arrest the same for boards genders. So we have. Don't make me go a artista or Giuliana a artista Both words and within a. But we know that Dominica is a man, so we know that he is artist. But it's a male artist. The is just way to remember This is to run the vocabulary as it is, so that was my lesson for today, Right in the project section your name, where you come from and your profession. You can also try to fill out your table and posted there. If your profession is not in a table, write it in the comment section so that I can help you or search it in a dictionary as a recount.

So no artista it to We can add an out of professional simply by adding an E between the true profession like we didn't lesson before. For example, Towel Mikhail More Giuliana Sooner Italiana. So no artista a student Issa it to please remember, Don't confuse the E return air with the accent. That means Louis Air as he sees the 1,000,000 version off.
