Hello everyone! Since this morning I posted on Twitter that the word of the day would be COLAZIONE – breakfast, I thought I would write something on it here. So, today’s lesson is about what Italians eat for breakfast (usually, not always)! You can learn some vocabulary related to food (cibo), YAY! Let’s get started…
At home… Usually on a weekend, when there’s time to eat breakfast!
Colazione = breakfast
Caffè = coffee (we make coffee with a “caffettiera”)
Latte = milk
Biscotti = biscuits
Frutta = fruit
Marmellata = jam
Nutella = Nutella
Fette biscottate = If anyone knows the equivalent in English, please let me know!
At the bar… (which is different from an English bar)
Usually people have a different breakfast because they are in rush and have to go to work/school, so breakfast becomes a fast meal (but healthy and tasty!). At a bar, you would order cappuccino/coffee/orwhateveryoulike and a cornetto (croissant).
If you want to know how to pronounce the words above, stay tuned for the video lesson which will be up tomorrow! I’ll post it here anyway.
Thanks for stopping by! Ciao 🙂
Vorrei fare colazione con cappucino e cornetto.
Does that sound alright, Mi Professora?
YES! That is right!The only thing I have to say (a tiny slight mistake!), cappuccino is written with two Cs! Well done!
Grazie. Vorrei fare colazione con cappuccino e cornetto?
Now, where can I get my candy? 😉

Am loving your blog! 🙂 Even raved about you in my latest post!

Fette biscottate is very similar to American “Melba Toast”. It’s basically twice baked toast.
