Mi piaci molto! Ti va se ci vediamo ancora?—(I like you very much! Shall we see each other again?) Answer this correctly in Italian and you may be going on a hot date. Incorrectly, and you could be hurting someone's feelings or getting a slap! Italian Language classes and textbooks tend to spend a lot of time rehearsing for the same fictitious scenarios but chances are while in Italy you will spend a lot more time trying to make new friends or start new romances—something you may not be prepared for.
If you are a student, businessman or tourist traveling to Italy and would like to have an authentic and meaningful experience, the key is being able to speak like a local. This friendly and easy-to-use Italian phrasebook makes this possible. Making Out in Italian has been carefully designed to act as a guide to modern colloquial Italian for use in everyday informal interactions—giving access to the sort of catchy Italian expressions that aren't covered in traditional language materials.
