If the Italian language is a locked door that you’re still struggling to open, then I’ve come to bring you the key. No matter how many subjunctive verbs your language teachers want to fill your brains with, all you really need to get by in this country is a whole lot of prego. There are some words in the world that carry their weight in gold. There are some words that travelers should keep safely jingling in their pockets at all times. Some words are like spare change that can be easily spent in tight times. Prego is one of those words. It opens all doors. And in Italy, you’ll find it everywhere except ladled over your pasta. Prego is the multipurpose solution to every language need. Just what does it mean? Well, everything, actually.
