Becky: "Today's the big day, I'm getting married!"
Ofelia: (SLOW) Oggi è il gran giorno, mi sposo! (Regular) Oggi è il gran giorno, mi sposo!
Becky: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "Today is the big day."

Becky: Then comes the phrase - "I'm getting married!"
Ofelia: mi sposo!
Becky: The verb "to get married" in Italian is reflexive, meaning that the subject carries out the action on itself. The short word in front of the verb is called a reflexive pronoun, and it changes based on the subject. Listen again- "I'm getting married!" is...
Ofelia: (SLOW) mi sposo! (REGULAR) mi sposo!
