Besides reading, another way to learn new words and expressions is through conversation. Today’s Parola del giorno is the interjection Urca, which means Wow or Gosh.
As many of you know, I went to a conference the other day in Nashville, Tennessee in the United States. The conference took place at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Conference Center, an immense complex of gardens, waterfalls, waterparks and other attractions.
I shared the photograph with a friend in Italy, who replied:
“Urca! È come abitare in una serra!”
“Wow! It’s like living in a greenhouse!”
