Hello everyone and welcome back to my channel. So, today we have so many things to talk about. So let's get started right away. This is the second part of the video on situations. That is, what to say or respond to in a given situation? So today we continue this journey together. In the first part of the video I proposed some very common situations in which you might find yourself. In today's video, however, I will answer your questions, because under the previous video you left some interesting comments. Let's start with the first comment I chose. Lea tells us: for the situation in which one turns to a person who is ill, I have also heard "riguardati". In fact, last time we talked about what to say to a person who tells you they are sick.
We had seen: get well soon, get well soon, take care (take care of yourself). A very useful situation that has occurred to me now is what to say when answering the phone. In Italian we say "Pronto". It is an invariable expression that is used because when telephone connections were invented, it was said "ready" to communicate that the connection was up and running. This expression has remained over time, so when the phone rings, you answer and say "hello, who is it?".
Second comment, Hayde Cristina asks: How can we say "no" to a person who has a love interest for us, but this interest is not reciprocated? We can say: I don't reciprocate your feelings. Let's move on. Carolina asks: When I shop, how do I say "nothing else"? We can say: that's enough, I'm okay. You are at the market and they ask you: "Do you anything else?" and you answer: "That's enough, thanks" or "That's all, thanks". Let's see another comment. Daniel asks if there is another way of saying "di niente".
"Di niente" is a more informal way of saying "you're welcome", so it is a response to "thank you". We can say: you're welcome, don't mention it. Next comment. Laura offers various situations, but the one I want to include in this video is when you don't know what to choose and each option suits you.
You can say: it's the same, it's the same. For example: which cinema do you prefer, shall we go to the one in the center or the one near your home? It's the same for me. Both are fine, I don't have a preference. Or, it's the same for me. Another comment asks what is said to a person who sneezes. It is said: Health! Then, Anna asks what to say in situations when someone tells you something offensive. Leaving aside the bad words for a moment! The first thing that would come to my mind is: How dare you? Or with the form of courtesy to keep your distance: How dare you?
We come to the next question, which is from Josie, who asks what to say when you want to let someone pass in front of you. There is an expression, it says: "after you". You are walking and you realize that a person behind you is walking faster. So you move to give way, to do a courtesy. And then the word we would say would be "Prego". This word is also used when you open the door for someone or when you hold the door for someone. The word "prego" has many uses, this is one of them. We could make a video just about this word, let me know in the comments. We come to the last comment, which are actually two (a comment and an answer).
The proposed situation is one in which someone offers you food, but you have to refuse because you are full. What do we usually say? "No, thanks, I'm okay." Or we can use an expression that we have already seen in the first part, which means "as if I accepted your offer". It's a nice way to turn down some food because you're full, "thank you, as if I have accepted". "I'm fine like that." So that's it for today's video. But if other situations come to mind, leave a comment below so I can retrieve it. Maybe I can film a third part. Please, even if a situation that comes to your mind seems trivial or simple,
write it down, because it could still be useful for someone. Thank you so much for watching this video and see you in the next one. See you soon, bye!
