48. You’re Sitting In My Seat! (Intermediate)

  Level: Intermediate

In today’s episode we will talk about train trips and reserved seats. Kyle, one of LearnItalianPod subscribers, sent us a very nice email. He writes: “I have been on the train when Italians are in my reserved seat, and I would like to be able to speak to them politely and intelligently about this problem.” Kyle, we know what you are talking about! So today we’ll see how to solve this kind of situation in a polite and intelligent way. Enjoy!

Very useful episode – I had the same kind of experience once in Italy. I did not know what to say (in Italian) – I wish I had listened to this episode then… Thanks for this!

Dan Says:

Una domanda – questa frase:

“Mm, mi sa che ha ragione, signorina.”

Why is it “sa” – 3rd person?
I have not seen a sentence like this before.
I guess I was expecting something like:

Credo che abbia raggione.

Thanks for your help, Dan

 Ciao Massimo,

Got my answer to MI SA CHE in lesson 49.
Idiomatic expression. Grazie!


Hayley Says:

 At the end of this lesson I can’t figure out the word “au tormina” or autormena – what word am i hearing?

Steve Says:

 Taormina e una citta in Sicilia
