Italian Club

Italian Club

     Have you ever have an interest in learning Italian? Now is your chance! On Mondays after school, Italian Club will start teaching Italian lessons! Mr. Tesei, the new Italian Club moderator and Spanish teacher, was born in Rome and moved to the United States only 10 years ago. We both have extensive knowledge of the Italian language and culture and we are happy  and excited to share this knowledge with everyone at Hallahan. Every time you go out to eat at an Italian restaurant, you’ll be able to pronounce the words better than the waiter or learn some pickup lines to attract those cute Italian boys. You’ll finally understand all those crazy hand gestures that the Italians are famous for.

     Learning Italian is so important because the influence of the Italians is evident throughout Philadelphia. You cannot walk down the street without seeing an authentic Italian ristorante or trattoria! The Philly accent that has become dialogue originates from the original Italian accent that our ancestors had. Passyunk Avenue is so influenced by the Italians that you feel you are in Italy.  Hope to see you there, Arrivederci!

 

Take a look at some words/phrases that you’ll learn:

Che casino! ~ What a mess!

Buono come il pane! ~ As good as bread!

In Bocca al Lupo ~ Into the wolf’s mouth. Good Luck

    You reply: Crepi

Dalle Stelle alle Stalle ~To go from the stars to the horse stalls! To fall from Grace

Fuori di Testa ~ Out(side) of your mind. You’re crazy

Ad ogni morte di Papa ~ Every time a Pope dies Once in a blue moon
