Level: That's Amore!
Let’s find out what Italians’ favorite pets are. About a year ago, a major Italian association who protects animals run a survey asking Italians to indicate their favorite pet. You will not be surprised to hear that the dog is still “man’s best friends” followed by (who else?) the cat. – But some Italians got creative and they said they would love to have a snake pet, or a goose pet, or even a donkey pet! – So, let’s learn all about pets and animals, and let’s practice lots of useful Italian words and expressions that you can use in any “real life” conversation in Italian. Enjoy!
