Lesson Transcript

Hi everyone! I’m Alisha.
Welcome to Conversational Phrases!
We’ve found that the best way to learn a language is to speak it from day one! And the best way to start speaking is to learn phrases that you’ll use in real conversations.
In this lesson, you’ll learn conversational phrases to answer the question, "What kind of movies do you like?" After watching this video, you’ll be able to talk about movies and ask other people about their favorite kinds of movies.
Now, let’s take a look at some conversational phrases!
Listen to the dialogue.
Che tipo di film ti piacciono?
Mi piacciono gli horror.
Once more with the English translation.
Che tipo di film ti piacciono?
“What kind of movies do you like?”
Mi piacciono gli horror.
“I like horror.”
First of all you'll need to learn how to say "What kind of movies do you like?"
That's: Che tipo di film ti piacciono?
Listen to it again: Che tipo di film ti piacciono?, Che tipo di film ti piacciono?
“What kind of movies do you like?”
Now, how do you answer this question?
The pattern is:
Mi piacciono gli/i/le [type of movie].
This Italian sentence translates as "I like the [type of movie]." But it means "I like [type of movie] movies."
For example:
“I like horror.”
Mi piacciono gli horror., Mi piacciono gli horror.
