Word of The Week


Il raffreddore - cold (noun)

The lurgy's got me. For most of this week I've been suffering from a raffreddore, and with the change in seasons there's a lot of it going around. Fighting it when you're in Italy doesn't come cheap either - the Tachifludec in the photo, a lemon drink which contains paracetamol, cost me €6.20 for 10 sachets this time! And for language geeks the Italian for the adjective cold is contained in the word raffreddore - it's freddo.

Oh. How do you say "get well soon" in italiano? "Guarisci presto"?
