Benvenuto/a! Welcome to Daily Italian Words!
We’re a husband and wife team whose passion is languages. (You can read more about us here!)
The aim (obiettivo) of this website is to help you increase your Italian vocabulary. We publish a new word every day (and a phrase every week) complete with explanations about its origin, as well as example phrases with audio using the word in context. Where relevant, we also share idioms, songs or movie scenes related to the word.
Ma non è tutto! (But that’s not all!)
We also write regular blog posts, comparisons and guides with film and TV show recommendations to watch online in Italian.
Below is a quick tour of what you’ll find on the website and how to access all of its content. Buona navigazione! (Happy browsing!)

New to the website? Do you want to go back to a word you received a month ago? Or perhaps you want to see more words around the same theme? Nessun problema! (No problem!).
All the words and phrases we’ve published can be found organised by category. We’ve classified them according to level (beginner or advanced), grammatical function (adjective, verb, etc.) and topic such as food or travel for example. Click on the link below and start searching!
In addition to sharing a word every day, we also write various blog posts that deal with words and phrases surrounding a specific topic, as well as comparisons that compare two or more similar words. These articles are useful if you want to dig a bit deeper into the Italian language, or enrich your vocabulary in one go.
Italian Films and TV Series
One of the best ways to learn more vocabulary and get used to the sound of the language is to watch an Italian film or TV show with (when possible) Italian subtitles. Because you hear exactly what you’re reading, it is a very effective way of improving your knowledge of the language. To find all our latest recommendations, be sure to check out our guide of the most interesting films and TV series available on Netflix and YouTube.
