Yes, why doesn't grotto work? I googled an English translation of grotta and cave was first, but next in order were grotto and cavern.

Can you accept morning for giorno? Buon giorno is good morning.

Nov 20, 2014
giorno means day, not morning; it's like in Italy they say "good day" instead of "good morning" so I don't think morning should be accepted I'd accept "kid" for bambino

I'd say 100% is pretty good for someone who used a combination of a limited knowledge of Spanish and historical and cultural clues.

DUCE is not truly an Italian word. It derived from Latin word DUX (= leader, military chief) and was adopted by Mussolini as his personal title, since he got inspired by Roman Empire. Before fascist times, "duce" was an archaic and lost world. After fascist time, "duce" is almost only used to address to Mussolini (aka il Duce). So, I think it's a little misleading to put that word on a quiz like this. "Duce" in Italian Language has almost exactly the same value of "Fuhrer" in German: they both are not anymore vocabulary words, but they're instead historical related appellatives with a given strong negative characterization.

You're wrong about Führer, it still means a guide, sometimes a driver.

ah never realised but I guess it is similar to dutch voeren then. A hardly used anymore verb meaning leading something somewhere. (close to transporting, but it is more about the movement, the guiding. VERvoeren would be transporting. I guess it is related to varen which in english is sailing, but basicly comes from a root that means going/moving) Farewell is connected to that.

and you have "in vervoering" which losely can be translated as being moved (to tears)

Well, I learned something. I've only used 'ragazza/o' when referring to teenage girls/boys specifically. I guess I never had an Italian situation before when I needed to refer to a younger girl.

Hi, I'm Italian, "Canto" doesn't mean "Song", that's "Canzone". "Canto" is "Sing" (first person singular), or "Chant", like other people argued in their posts. Thanx

While I was taking this quiz, I realized how close a lot of them were to Spanish words. I got a pretty good amount of the words correct just by using my knowledge of Spanish words. For example, oro literally means gold in Spanish too. Benvenuto sounds pretty dang close to bienvenido, and, again, both mean the same thing. "Yo canto" means "I sing" in Spanish. Cavallo sounds like caballo, which means horse in Spanish. Venti sounds close to veinte, which means twenty in Spanish. Padre means father in Spanish. Vino means wine in Spanish. Bianco is kind of close to blanco, which means white in Spanish. Ciao is a little close to chao, meaning bye in Spanish. This one is a bit of a stretch, but mille is close to mil, simply cut off the last two letters. Mil means thousand. I couldn't really find any other words that are similar to those of the Spanish language. Anyone else find this easy because of Spanish?
