Countries in Italian

One of the first questions you’ll be asked when meeting someone in Italy is “Where are you from?” – “Di dove sei” or “Da dove vieni?”

This Rocket Italian lesson on how to pronounce countries in Italian will prepare you for these questions, and help you ask them in return and understand the answer! Many of the names of countries are similar in English and Italian but pronounced slightly differently so they’ll be easier to remember. Practice these country names out loud so you can sound natural when talking to a native Italian speaker!
