Learning Italian Part 3

Some of the phrases on the Learn To Speak Italian tapes are stupendously useless to the casual American tourist spending a week in Italy.

For example:

I am going to sell my skis to my friend.

The 43rd fisherman.

My brother has a red bicycle.

I would like to sell my house.

In May, I brought the boat to Sweden.


While others are just plain baffling.

In case you don't believe me, listen for yourself.

I don't wash myself.

Could I have a discount off the price of the hotel room please? I don't plan on using any hot water.


He must die.

That tour guide didn't answer any of my questions. Where can I hire a hit man?
or
I need to get the accent right to audition for a part in a gangster movie.
