Writing to someone in Italy

Postby maria12000 » 08 Nov 2003, 01:03

Peter,
how would I go about writing to someone in Italy. Suanj gave me the address's of the Gervasi's in Vallelunga Pratameno.. I don't understand the address or how to write it. Also, I don't speak Italian--- is there somewhere I can go to learn words or have someone translate things for me if needed?

www.freetranslation.com. An address is an address...name, street (V.=via=street), Postale (ZIP Code) (XX=province initials). Comune=town. Peter

Writing letter to Italy

Postby Stella » 16 Nov 2003, 04:23

I found just writing in English was easy because someone can translate for a realitve that does not speak english. If you just give them your name, who you are related to, that person related to the next and so on and make the letter simple and easy to understand. Then you might get a letter back. Some times it takes awhile so don't get too worried if you don't get anything back. :lol:

English is rthe second language in Italy so school kids can help out but if you wish you can go to www.freetranslation.copm and they do professional translation at low rates, so they say. Peter
