• I had posted on “learning a language through opera.” If all you know is what you know from opera, you surely can uses these phrases (and produce hilarity for the natives.):

    1. Lousy meal: “Eh cameriere…questo piato puzza di rifritto.”

    2. Nasty Hotel Clerk: “Va….fuggi”

    3.Very angry at someone “Cruda, funesta smania”

    4.Crying at a film in Paris: “Pleurez,pleurez,mes yeux”

    5. Trying to make out with someone: ” Du bist der Lenz”

    6. Homesick: “O Patria mia”

    7. During sex with “Cortesan”(I didn’t say “Putana”): ” Basta,Roberti” OR”Basta,Roberta.”

    8. Bad food: “Ohime, morir mi sento.”

    9. Fire in your hotel room “Di quella pira.”

    10. Hating a mean landlady: “Maledizione” OR “A terra…e piangi” OR
    ” Man tote dieses Weib”

    11. Kept up by orchestra on the plaza: “Nessun Dorma”

    12. Departure: “Addio,senza rancor.”

    13. They came into your hotel room and robbed some furniture:
    “Adieu,notre petite table.”

    14. I can’t sleep in this dump. “Ich habe nicht gute Nachte”

    15. Bad service at Easter GUESS!! (a te,la mala Pasqua.”

    Come on..nutcases like me..Let’s hear some of yours!!!!
