  1. Ciao Massimo,
    Please explain the sentence, “che cosa c’e’ che non va.”
    what’s wrong with the room, I don’t understand the translation.
    Grazie, Canice

  2. Canice, the sentence “che cosa c’e’ che non va” literally means “what there is that does not go”. The best way to translate the sentence in English, given the contest of the dialogue, is “what is wrong (with the room)”.

  3. Ciao Jane e Massimo
    This is a great and very useful lesson. I’m sure it will come in very handy when I visit Italy in April.
    I was wondering if you could create a lesson for vegetarian people when ordering food in Italy. It would be a great help.
    Grazie mille! and keep up the good work.
    Luisa

  4.  Ciao Jane e Massimo,
    Come va? I found this lesson very useful. I am studying Italian now in Australia and visiting Italy at the beginning of April. Is it possible to do a lesson on useful phrases concerning Italian night life?. Such as ordering drinks, offering beverages to friends and ways to initiate a conversation with someone in a club?
    Grazie

  5. Sorry, but ‘Che cosa c’e’ che non va’ is best translated (more fully) into English, given the context above, as: ‘What is it that’s wrong with it?’ (the room).
