POST
Becky: Listen again to Giulia's post.
Ofelia: In giro per negozi con mia sorella.
Becky: "Around the shops with my sister."
Ofelia: (SLOW) In giro per negozi con mia sorella. (Regular) In giro per negozi con mia sorella.
Becky: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning, "Around the shops."
Ofelia: In giro per negozi
Becky: In Italian social media, it's pretty common to omit verbs, as long as the meaning is clear. In this expression, for example, you could say both "walking around the shops," or just "around the shops." Listen again- "Around the shops" is...
Ofelia: (SLOW) In giro per negozi (REGULAR) In giro per negozi
Becky: Then comes the phrase - "with my sister."
Ofelia: con mia sorella
Becky: Remember that Italian possessives must agree in number and gender with the nouns they modify. "Sister" is feminine and singular, therefore the possessive will also have to be feminine and singular. Listen again- "with my sister" is...
Ofelia: (SLOW) con mia sorella (REGULAR) con mia sorella
Becky: All together, "Around the shops with my sister."
Ofelia: In giro per negozi con mia sorella.
