craft related vocabulary

Postby Ccaesar » Mon Feb 22, 2021 8:34 pm

Hello everyone
I am currently working on acquiring vocabulary related to the business sector in Italian. I am using Italian books meant for intermediate learners, however, I am unsure how to "internalize" the vocabulary since Danish is such a small language there doesn't really exist dictionaries made specifically for this, and therefore finding the corresponding terms in Danish is quite troublesome.
Do any of you have some advice from similare situations?

I did a video about this type of thing. Where you need vocabulary for a specific requirement. Firstly you need to get some words. You can get Google to help with this by searching for things like:

Code: Select all

filetype:pdf termini contabili

termini contabili = accounting terms, for business you might need others like "termini di negoziazione", etc. But I'm sure you can figure out what you want. The video should explain just about everything you need. You can also switch up the filetype for DOC, TXT, etc.

I have a book, don't know if it is still in circulation called. "Italian for Commerce" by Julian Popescu published by Pergamon Press. I'm sure there will be others in English, by perhaps not Danish. So my Internet method might suit you better. If you watch the video on YT I put the links to the programs in the description.

Only if there's actually a corresponding article in Danish ;)
