you go to the same place, you’ll be able to go to “M,”

and then you’re going to want to go over to “Missing.”

Okay. Nolan? Okay? Yeah.

All right. Let’s try this out in—

What language are we doing? Italian.


Okay. Here we go.

“Ti manca” “Ti manca” “un calzino.” “un calzino.”

“Ti manca un calzino.” “Ti manca un calzino.”

Which is you’re missing a sock.

“calzino.” Does that sound like a word

you know in Spanish?

Hmm, no.

It sounds similar to sock in Spanish, doesn’t it?


Yeah, let’s hear it one more time.

So to teach this phrase,

if you see that your kid’s missing a sock, which—

Okay, no. You, you— Often, Nolan is missing a sock

and he’s very upset about it, or the baby’s missing a sock

and we can say, “You’re missing a sock.”

Right? And if they don’t know what you mean,

you can say it in English and then the language again.

Right? Let’s try it one more time.

“Ti manca” “Ti manca” “un calzino.” “un calzino.”

“Ti manca un calzino.” “Ti manca un calzino.”
