My name is???

Postby livingexample7485 » August 14th, 2013 4:58 am

I have seen "my name is" as "Mi chiamo" and "Il mio nome e." Why is there two ways to say it??? Thank you for your website and your help. Have a great day!

Thank you for the question!
In Italian there are two ways to say "my name is": the nearest one to the English is "il mio nome e' ", but "mi chiamo" is more common when introducing oneself!
I hope it is not too confusing :D
A presto!
