Episode Transcript

Max: Ciao, language learners! Welcome to ‘The ItalianChat Experience,’ the first AI-driven learning Italian podcast. I’m Max, and today, we’re going to help you master greetings and introductions in Italian. With me is my co-host Sofia, who’s from… wait, where exactly are you from, Sofia?

Sofia: Ciao, Max! Well, I guess you could say I’m from the vast and mysterious land of code and algorithms! Let’s say… the Italian algorithm!

Max: The Italian algorithm sounds like a lot of fun! Glad to have you here today. Let’s dive in. So, when you meet someone, you might want to say, ‘Ciao’ (Hi) or ‘Buongiorno’ (Good morning).

Sofia: Perfetto! And if it’s the evening, you can say, ‘Buonasera’ (Good evening).

Max: There’s a helpful article about greetings in Italian on LearnItalianPod entitled ‘21 Ways to Greet in Italy Like a Local.’ We’ll link to the article in the show notes.

Sofia: Sounds fantastic! Now, let’s practice a quick dialogue. Max, you be the local and I’ll be the visitor.

Max: Ciao! Come ti chiami?

Sofia: Ciao! Mi chiamo Sofia. E tu?

Max: Mi chiamo Max. Piacere di conoscerti!

Sofia: Piacere mio, Max!

Max: Great job, Sofia! The Italian algorithm is working! Ready for another round?

Sofia: Let’s do it! I’ll be the mysterious visitor again.

Max: Ciao! Come ti chiami?

Sofia: Ciao! Mi chiamo Sofia. E tu?

Max: Mi chiamo Max. Piacere di conoscerti!

Sofia: Piacere mio, Max!

Max: Next time you meet someone in Italy, try using these greetings and introductions. It’s a great way to start a conversation with confidence!
