Help writing letter

Postby coldvolt » 10 Sep 2006, 10:15

Hello
I attempted to write a letter to someone in Italian and wanted to know if my punctuation and grammar was correct.

" Cara Alyssa Del Piero,
Io mi chiamo Daniel e ho tredici anni. Sono il Coreano, ma abito a Toongabbie in Australia. Parlo bene l’inglese e coreano. Sono un tipo molto socievole e mi piace molto lo sport. E tu, dove abiti? Quante lingue parli? "

I wanted to say in italian,
Dear Alyssa Del Piero
My name is Daniel and I am 13 years old. I am Korean, living in Toongabbie, Australia. I speak English and Korean. I am very social and like playing sport.
Where do you live? What languages do you speak?


Im not really sure if "Quante lingue parli" means "What languages do you speak". If it isnt can you tell me how to say "What languages do you speak" in italian, please?

And also how do you say "My hobbies are playing games and listening to music." and "What are your hobbies and interests?" in italian ?


Thanks!

Yes, your transaltion is about correct and understable.

Will be better, instead of "quante lingue parli", to write "quali lingue parli".

My hobbies are playing games and listening to music." and "What are your hobbies and interests?

Playing games will be translated as "giocare con i giochi", but, in Italian, does not make any sense. Do you mean to play with PS2 or similar games?
If yes, translation will be: i miei hobby sono giocare con i videogame e ascoltare musica. Quali sono i tuoi hobby e quali sono i tuoi interessi?

Don't tell me, she lives in San Vendemiano (TV), Italy......
If yes, I'll bring her the letter by hand!

For my knowledge the letter is perfect.

Where you were born?
Dove sei nata?

When you were born?
Quando sei nata?

I was born in Korea
Io sono nato in Corea
