POST
Becky: Listen again to Matteo's post.
Ofelia: Vi presento la mia ragazza.
Becky: "Introducing my girlfriend."
Ofelia: (SLOW) Vi presento la mia ragazza. (Regular) Vi presento la mia ragazza.
Becky: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "Introducing."
Ofelia: Vi presento
Becky: In English, the pronoun "you" can be both singular and plural. In Italian, on the other hand, there are two different pronouns. In this expression, the meaning is "introducing to you (plural)." Listen again- "Introducing" is...
Ofelia: (SLOW) Vi presento (REGULAR) Vi presento
Becky: Then comes the phrase "my girlfriend."
Ofelia: la mia ragazza
Becky: In English, you can't use the article before a possessive, but in Italian you usually have to. So here we have article + possessive + noun. Listen again. "My girlfriend" is...
Ofelia: (SLOW) la mia ragazza (REGULAR) la mia ragazza
Becky: All together, itโ€™s "Introducing my girlfriend."
Ofelia: Vi presento la mia ragazza.
