What about “go to school”?

Bad English- Italy from the Inside

I really want to think that this was made on purpose. Or maybe not… The fact is that while the f- word was spelled correctly (ma bravo), this very intelligent person had three chances to write “school” the right way and missed them all. D-! Plus community service to clean this eyesore.

Bru… what?

Bruschetta rucola e stracchino- Italy From The Inside

If you are Italian and live in the States, you have probably shivered every time you heard the word bruschetta during a commercial. Here’s the thing: in Italian the syllable “sche” is pronounced “ske”, so you have to say brusKetta.

However, to make it fair, just know that Italians, for example, pronounce the famous Colgate toothpaste as Colgut-ay.

That said, if you happen to have some stracchino or crescenza (a soft and creamy cheese unfortunately still hard to find in the States), try it on some toasted bread and top it off with rucola. Buona brusKetta a tutti.
