Hi Liliana,

you're right, it expresses excitement. You can say "grazie, volentieri" to accept something you've been offered. It can be something like a cup of tea, but also an invitation. For example: "Vuoi venire con noi al cinema?" (Would you like to come to the cinema with us?) "Grazie, volentieri" (Gladly, thank you).


It is a neutral expression, meaning that you can use it both in formal and informal situations.


Thanks for your comment!

Hi,

I am curious as to when you would use "grazie, volentieri"? Is it formal or informal? Does it express being excited?

I will be traveling to Rome May 20, 2020 to June 13, 2020. I am 64 years old and this is my second attempt to learn a new language. The first two lessons I was able to grasp. I am looking forward to continue on. I greeted my wife this morning with buongiorno this morning. It's a start.
