В том, что Сирэйнис не нарушит данного ею слова, он был убежден, но тем не менее хотел обеспечить себе путь к отступлению. Воздушный шлюз беззвучно закрылся за ним, когда он покинул корабль. Секундой позже раздалось едва слышное шипение -- будто кто-то изумленно вздохнул. Несколько мгновений темная тень еще закрывала звезды, и корабль И только теперь Олвин с неудовольствием подумал, что все-таки допустил небольшой, но досадный просчет, причем просчет такого рода, что он мог повлечь за собой катастрофическое крушение всех его замечательных планов.

Whether you're traveling in Italy or just want to speak to an Italian friend in their native language, good manners are essential. Being able to say "thank you" goes a long way in expressing your humble gratefulness to someone for giving you something or helping you out. In Italian, the most basic way to say "thank you" is grazie (GRAHT-see-eh). However, there are plenty of other phrases you can use to enhance your expression.[1]



Expressing Basic Gratefulness

  1. 1

    Use grazie to express thanks in most situations.Grazie (GRAHT-see-eh) is the most common way to say "thank you" in Italian. It's acceptable to use in any situation where you would typically thank someone.[2]
    • While Italian does have formal and informal pronouns, grazie is not a word that changes depending on the person you're talking to. For that reason, it's also a good word to use if you're unsure whether to speak to someone formally or informally.
  2. 2

    Practice the correct pronunciation of the word grazie. English speakers often pronounce the word "GRAHT-see," pronouncing the letters the same way they would an English word with the same letters. However, in Italian there are no silent letters. The word grazie has 3 syllables.[3]
    • You don't want to pronounce the r in grazie the way you would pronounce an English r either. The Italian r is trilled. You can approximate the sound by thinking about the way you pronounce a word like "butter" if you say it fast. The d sound you make comes close to an Italian r.

    Tip: Unlike English and some other languages, pronunciation rules in Italian are consistent and Italian words are spelled phonetically. If you learn how to pronounce a letter or combination of letters in one word, it will sound the same in any other word where it appears.

  3. 3

    Add or no when responding to an offer. If someone offers you something, use (see) to indicate that you're accepting their offer, or no (noh) to indicate that you don't want it. Follow with grazie to be polite.[4]
    • For example, if you're walking down a street in Rome and a flower vendor offers you a flower, you might say "no, grazie," to let them know that you aren't interested in buying any flowers.


Using Thankful Phrases

  1. 1

    Give many thanks by saying molte grazie. The phrase molte grazie (MOHL-teh GRAHT-see-eh) literally means "many thanks." If you want to go a step beyond the basic grazie, this is a good phrase to use.[5]
    • For example, if you have a special request that someone goes out of their way to fulfill, you might say molte grazie. It's a little stronger than a simple grazie and implies that you understand and appreciate what the person has done for you.
  2. 2

    Offer a thousand thanks with grazie mille or mille grazie.Grazie mille (GRAHT-see-eh MEEL-leh) literally means "a thousand thanks," but it's typically used to mean something more like "thanks a lot." The mille can go before or after the grazie without changing the meaning.[6]
    • For example, you might say "grazie mille per il Suo aiuto," which means "thanks a lot for your help."
    • In English, "million" is used more often than "thousand" in this context. You can think of this phrase as similar to saying "a million thanks" or "thanks a million."
  3. 3

    Say grazie tante to express deep gratitude.Grazie tante (GRAHT-see-eh TAHN-teh) is another Italian phrase that essentially means "thanks a lot." The word tante means "many," so the phrase literally means "many thanks."[7]
    • Like grazie mille, you can place the word tante either before or after the word grazie without changing the meaning.

    Tip: The phrase grazie tante can also be used sarcastically in response to a perceived slight or offense, so pay close attention to the tone of voice.

  4. 4

    Try grazie di tutto if you're thanking someone for multiple things. The phrase grazie di tutto (GRAHT-see-eh dee TOO-toh) means "thanks for everything." It's generally more appropriate to use if someone has helped you more than once, or if they've helped you in several different ways.[8]
    • For example, if you were staying in a hotel in Rome and the hotel proprietor gave you directions several different times, as well as advice on the best restaurants and the best time of day to visit local attractions, it would be appropriate to say grazie di tutto as you were checking out of the hotel.
  5. 5

    Switch to formal pronouns when speaking to people older than you. The word grazie comes from the verb ringraziare, which means "to thank." You can also use this verb to thank someone. However, if you do, be sure to use formal pronouns to address anyone who is older or in a position of authority.[9]
    • If you're speaking to someone your age or younger, or someone you have a close relationship with, you could say ti ringrazio (tee rreen-GRAHT-see-oh), which is the informal way of saying "I thank you."
    • If the person you're thanking is older than you, an adult stranger, or someone in a position of authority, use la ringrazio (lah rreen-GRAHT-see-oh).
    • If you're addressing your thanks to more than one person, say vi ringrazio (vee rreen-GRAHT-see-oh).

    Tip: Many Italians roll the r at the beginning of the word ringrazio, pronouncing it similar to a Spanish r.


Responding to Thanks

  1. 1

    Use prego as the basic response to grazie.Grazie is the most common way to say "thank you" in Italian and prego (PRAY-goh) is the most common way to say "you're welcome." If someone says grazie to you, prego is always an appropriate response, regardless of who the person is or what they're thanking you for.[10]
    • The word prego is the first-person singular form of the verb pregare, which means "to pray." While it's translated as "you're welcome" when said in response to grazie, it literally means "I pray."

    Tip: If you're traveling in Italy, you'll hear the word prego a lot. You'll hear it said by shopkeepers to ask if you need any help, by restaurant servers leading you to your table or asking to take your order, or by someone at a door indicating you should go through first.

  2. 2

    Say non c'è di che if thanks aren't needed. The phrase non c'è di che (nohn chay dee kay) is best translated as "there's no need to thank me." If you did something that you would automatically do for anyone, you can use this phrase to indicate that you didn't go out of your way.[11]
    • For example, if someone thanked you for holding the door open for them, you might respond non c'è di che.
  3. 3

    Try di niente to express that it was no big deal. The word niente means "nothing," so you'd translate the phrase di niente (dee nee-yehn-teh) to mean something along the lines of "it was nothing." This phrase is typically considered more casual.[12]
    • You can also try di nulla (dee NOOL-lah), which means basically the same thing.
  4. 4

    Ask ma di che to imply you don't know why you're being thanked. The phrase ma di che (mah dee kay) means "but for what?" You can use it as a clever way to let someone who thank you know that there's no need for thanks.[13]
    • Be careful with your tone and body language when you use this. Otherwise, the person may think that you genuinely don't know why they were thanking you.

  • Question

    How do I say "I love you" in Italian?

    The basic way to say "I love you" is "ti amo" (tee AH-moh). If you're speaking to someone for whom you don't have a romantic relationship, such as a mother saying "I love you" to her child, you could also say "ti voglio bene" (tee voy-LEE-oh beh-neh). There's no direct translation for this phrase into English, but it essentially means the same thing as "I love you" without any romantic connotation. However, "ti amo" is also used in non-romantic contexts.

    How do I say thank you my love in Italian from a woman to a man

    To say "thank you, my love," you would say "grazie, amore mio" (GRAHT-see-eh, ah-MOHR-eh MEE-oh). The form of the words does not change regardless of your gender identity or the gender identity of the person you're speaking to.

    Slightly bend your tongue and touch the tip to the mid part of the roof of your mouth, right where you can feel the roof start to slant upwards. Exhale lightly like you would if you said "huh" and let your tongue relax and vibrate against the roof of your mouth. It takes practice.

Wojtyla”, Catania, Mrs. Sivia Proțiuc, headmaster at the Center of Excellence in Food Processing Services from Balti, and Mrs. Violeta Camerzan, headmaster at the Vocational School from Cupcini, and the joint effort in organizing the exchange visit for the 3 teachers and 3 students from IPSSEOA ,,K. Wojtyla”, Catania, at the vocational schools from Moldova in the period of 18 – 23 March 2018.

I would like to express my gratitude to Prof.ssa Anna Chiarenza, Mrs. Doina Morari, Mrs. Natalia Balan, Mrs. Maia Guțu for coordinating the activities at the local schools and providing the assistance in planning and organizing the activities in the framework of this event.

I would like to thank Prof. Biagio Danilo De Feo, Prof. Carlo Ciaramidaro, Prof. Giovanni Sapienza for sharing their professional expertise with the Moldovan teachers and students during this exchange visit. I am more than grateful to you for the time spent planning and organizing the masterclasses on Italian dishes and non-alcoholic cocktails, delegating organizational and monitoring tasks to the Italian students during the cooking process and providing examples of leading the students via experiential learning, encouraging them to create new bonds of friendships and collaboration with the Moldovan peers via our gastronomy club or the joint workshop on food and healthy lifestyle organized in collaboration with the students and teachers from the College of Medicine.

My sincere appreciation to the students from IPSSEOA ,,K. Wojtyla”, Giovani Agatino Bomparola, Francesco Antoci, Davide Puglisi, and the target groups of students from the Moldovan partner schools for working collaboratively as part of all the masterclasses, workshops, English classes,  and for submitting the letter of consent which entitles us to use the photos and video recordings from this exchange visit in order to develop resources for our course “English for Gastronomy”.

I would like to thank the instructors from the vocational schools from Moldova, Mrs. Lilia Mahu, Mrs. Alina Furculița, Mrs. Svetlana Musteata, Mr. Petru Guțu and their colleagues for their valuable contribution in organizing the masterclasses on Moldovan cuisine as part of the exchange visit at their school. The masterclasses on both Italian and Moldovan cuisine provide us the opportunity to preserve the pleasure of the table by experiencing the new meals together as a key indicator to promote excellence in hospitality.

Again, thank you so much to all the students, instructors and teachers from the partner schools for playing a key role in the transmission of knowledge and passion for the culinary art, in promoting the intercultural collaboration and for contributing to the process of improving the English language teaching process at the vocational schools from Moldova.

I am deeply appreciative of the financial support for this exchange visit to the Foundation ”Liechtenstein Development Service” and I promise you we will work very hard to value this input and give it back by sharing the acquired knowledge and the new developed resources for the English course with all the partner vocational schools from Moldova.

Thank you again for your commitment and teamwork and I look forward to working with you in the future as part of our FELT School project, a small project with big opportunities.

"Thank you for your letter" in Italian

This post may contain affiliate links. Please check out my privacy policy and disclosure for more information.

When travelling to a new country, it’s always courteous to learn a few words and sentences in the local language. And when you travel to Italy on any European adventure, it’s no different. Here’s your ultimate guide to Italian phrases. How to say ‘thank you in Italian,’ how to say ‘good morning in Italian,’ how to say ‘hello in Italian’ and more!

Thank you in Italian

Grazie: Thanks! The simplest way of saying ‘thank you’ in Italian is simply to say ‘Grazie’ Of all the Italian phrases you’ll want to master before heading to the boot-shaped country, ‘grazie’ (pronounced ‘grat-zhee’) should be it.

Grazie Mille: A thousand thank yous! If you want to say thank you with a little something added, then use this easy phrase to give thanks to someone who has gone above and beyond your expectation, or even if you want to give an extra thank you for a marvellous Italian meal you’ve just consumed!

You’re Welcome in Italian

Prego: Often if you say ‘thank you’ for something or a service (i.e. receiving your coffee or ice cream in café), the person will often reply with ‘prego’ (pronounced prey-go). This word just means ‘you’re welcome’. However, the word ‘prego’ can also be used as a greeting to welcome guests, so don’t be surprised if you’re host announces ‘prego’ upon your arrival!

Sorry in Italian

Scusami: Also shortened to ‘scusi’ (pronounced ‘sku-zi’) is a quick and informal way of telling someone that you’re sorry, for example, if you’ve bumped into them.

Mi dispiace: If a simple ‘scusi’ won’t cut it, then you’ll want to use the more formal phrase of ‘mi dispiace’ which is pronounced as ‘me dis-peeachy’.

Please in Italian

Per favore: The easiest way to say please in Italian is simply to use this two-word phrase, pronounced ‘per fav-or-ay’.

Good morning and Good Afternoon in Italian

Buongiorno: This word can be used throughout the day to say hello to someone, or simply to say ‘have a nice day’ as long as it’s still light outside. Pronounced ‘bon jaw-no’ it literally translates as ‘good day’.

Good evening in Italian

Buonasera: After the sun has set, it’s common to use ‘Buonasera,’ to say ‘good evening.’ Also written as ‘Buona Sera’ it’s one of the most common Italian phrases you’ll hear if you head out to a restaurant or eatery for dinner.

Goodnight in Italian

Buonanotte!: Depending on the situation, using ‘buonanotte’ can be either formal or informal. It’s often used between loved ones and parents with their children and is a way of saying goodnight, or even ‘sweet dreams’. If friends having a conversation are looking to put an end to the matter, they can also say ‘buanonotte’.

Hello in Italian

Ciao: The easiest way to say hello and goodbye in Italian is simply to say ‘ciao’. This is an incredibly informal greeting and is typically used between family, friends, and sometimes acquaintances. A variation on ‘ciao’ is ‘ciao a tutti,’ which should be used when you want to greet a large group of people at the same time.

Goodbye in Italian

Salve: A good alternative to using ‘ciao’ is simply ‘salve’. This Italian word comes directly from the Latin word ‘Salve’ and can be used for hellos and goodbyes. Although an informal greeting, ‘salve’ can be used to greet someone when you’re passing them on the street or leaving a restaurant.

My name is in Italian

Mi Chiamo…: When it comes to introductions, there’s nothing as easy to remember as ‘my name is’. Pronounced ‘me key-amo’ remember this and you’ll find meeting new people in Italy that much easier!

How are you? in Italian

Come sta?: After introducing yourself and starting your first conversation in Italian, you’ll want to ask someone how they are and is pronounced exactly as it’s written. This is a formal way of asking a person how they’re doing and replies you’ll hear include: ‘così così’ (so-so), ‘sto bene’ (I’m great), and ‘non c’è male’ (not too bad).

I love you in Italian

Ti amo: Much like French, Italy is a language of love and so at one point or another, you may want to learn how to say those three little words in English (or two in Italian) to another person. Although there are literally a hundred ways to say ‘I love you’ to someone in Italian, ‘ti amo’ is a way of telling your partner you love them completely! Here’s how to say ‘I love You’ in forty more languages!
