Ma quanto siete ''adorable''??? Vi ho pensato tanto proprio ieri sera, mentre accompagnavo il festival di Sanremo in TV e i commenti correlati su Twitter... Quanti haters di turno, quanti post che potrebbero (o dovrebbero) essere evitati! Perché invece di solo dire cose brutte le persone semplicemente non cambiano canale? Perché non vi prendono come esempio? I video di Marco in a Box sono sempre interessanti, anche utili, oppure parlano di cose belle e vere... Ecco, Manzoni: il vero, l'utile, l'interessante. Internet ha bisogno di più gente come voi. Anzi: il mondo ne ha.

Grazie mille per questo video Marco e Alan! È stato molto utile e divertente. Avete fatto un doppio lavoro perché sto imparando l’italiano ma anche l’inglese. Love you guys!! Saluti dalla Argentina
Angela Mignone
Oooh, mi hai fatta tornare indietro nel tempo, quando andavo a scuola :) di alcuni però non li conoscevo i corrispettivi inglesi. Racconto questo fatto simpatico. Il falso amico più pericoloso per una ragazza, tra tutte le lingue, è \

Great video! I knew them all except for morbido and confetti, which I now know are 'soft' and 'sugared almonds', respectively. Grazie mille, ragazzi :D
Big Boy
Awesome video and it’s so relatable to me because I’m currently going to a Italian school and I’m in a preparatoria class and have to deal with these words a lot :))) 👍🏻👍🏻
Blanca Rodríguez Martínez
Ok, after watching this I have confirmed how similar Spanish and Italian are.😂
Bonnie Barto
You guys are so cute I could just watch you all day. Beautiful smiles of love..
Carl Eaves
I need Marco as a private tutor. Marco is so hot and Italian!
Carlotta Farnese
Il modo in cui ti guarda Alan è meraviglioso ❤️ E i confetti/coriandoli, non lo impareranno mai ahah
Charles Hamilton
This was a great video guys. Really enjoyed it. Should you decide to create a second video on the same theme, consider the Italian word “misto.” This word really mystifies Americans where it often appears on menus. Alla prossima!
Cicholas Nage
sono Italiano (Sardo) e alcune di queste parole non ho mai sentito essere usate come le hai usate tu.
Daniel Atteberry
You guys are so entertaining e che bei sorrisi hai entrambi.
Darko Tumbl
You could also add momentarily and actually... :)
David Oyen
My favourite false cognate is in German. Gift=poison\n\nFrench has a great one in propre. Ma chambre propre (my room) ma propre chambre. (My clean room)
Davide De Luca
Un video molto effective ( che in italiano vuol dire efficace)!
Dubhe
This was mind blowing even if knew all the differences 😂 non ne avevo mai elencate così tante! Quanto ci avete messo a trovarle? 😂
El Michelito
Non sanno copiare bene... Scherzo naturalmente, gran bel video☺

I got a lot of these right thanks to learning spanish as well :D

Che simpatici \u003c3
Fabio Carraro
Hey, ho scoperto il tuo canale ... e ritengo sinceramente che dovrebbero proibirti di continuare: è una droga! So visionando tutti i tuoi vecchi video. Aiutoooo! ;)
Flinter7
Amo questi video in cui insegni l’italiano!
Francesca🐶
False friends sia per chi parla in inglese e cerca di capire gli italiani, sia per chi è italiano e cerca di imparare l'inglese😂 loved the video Marco & Alan! Great content as always
François Talbot
Being a native french speaker actually helped me guess pretty much half of these words correctly. Some of these false friends are exactly the same in my language: actuellement, compréhensif, cru, éventuellement, fastidieux, gentil, librairie, préservatif, sensible, sympathique...
Gabriele Teisa
Guarda che \
George Ibrahim
Are these two guys married to each other's

I always think anatra means ant!
Ilaria Fevola
This video really confused me in a very funny way! I was used to hear about false friends in English for Italians and not the opposite. Very nice video Marco, as always!
James Johnstone
Is not pretendere also to claim, as in claim a throne? In archaic English we had the same sense, talking about the Young Pretender or the Old Pretender to the throne. Sometime the divergence of meaning happened late in history... Another great video guys! Complimenti!
Jorgelina
I love this type of videos ♥
JustTex
Bravi! Quanto mi piacete!
Kaelynn
Awwwn! You're so cute together! This is the perfect match of all the time😚😍😀\nAlso I'm Italian🇮🇹

Aww, Alan's smile ♥\nAlso, adoro la tua maglia!
Kristina K.
I got condom, factory and nice right, im doing so much better than Alan, although, I've never been to Italy and learned it. I guess I got them right thank to speaking Russian and French.
Kurami Rocket
Some of these I new and I don't speak Italian. I only assumed what they were because some words in Italian are very similar to Spanish words xD Been watching your amazing vids since I need to write a paper on the Italian culture. Such a interesting language and culture ^^
L Toti
Trovo interessante simpatico / simpathetic: la parola inglese ha un significato più vicino all'etimologia greca \
LIN
I love this kind of videos
Larks Plata
This is interesting! I recognise some of the words as they are similar to French which I am trying to learn :-)
Laurianne
Italian words are actually more similar to French ones. 😃
Laurina Tsvacenko
Guys, I really love you! Thank God I am a fluent speaker of both the Italian and the English language and I already know the confusion between these Italian and English words. Many, many kisses from Greece! \n\nP.S. Marco, you look gorgeous in this video

Utile anche per gli italiani! Grazie ragazzi! ❤️

Dio mio. Prima ,quando ho cominciato ad imparare italiano, ho fatto tanti falsi amici ×ché pensavo che italiano e inglese erano simili. Ma sbagliando si impara vero? Comunque che bel video! Grazie.
Noe Berengena
Great to do this review. And to watch Marco and Alan, the most photogenic couple on YouTube. Anche molto gentile.
Paula Rowińska
Seems that Italian is more similar to Polish than to English :)

Lo sguardo pieno d'amore di Alan al minuto 0:18 è commuovente😍
Psychosocial
Le espressioni di Alan sono le miglioriiii 😍\nE poi il modo in cui ti guardaaa\nTroppo belli sieteeee\nUn forte abbraccio a tutt'e dueeeee

Grazie Marco e Alan, insegno l'italiano agli americani, e uso i vostri video come compiti da dare a casa! :) seite una bella coppia :)
Sofia shaik
But pretendere vuol dire sia fingere che aspettarsi qualcosa ma che cavoloo di traduzioni son mai queste
Sophia Elric
Knowing French and Spanish really helps when you're trying to guess the word's actual meaning. I didn't expect it - should've, really, but I didn't so it was pretty cool!
Sotiria vera
Fabbrica means factory in Russian too
Stephany Fofano
I knew Comprensivo meant Understanding\nso Fabbrica is factory\ncool so Parente is Relative that is similar to the brazilian word for relative also fabric in brazilian would be fabrica
The-Advenger
comunque la parola firm in inglese deriva da firma in veneziano
TheAndrewSchneider
This is fun! I’m actually somebody who translates poetry and opera libretti, so this is useful, and I am attempting to read Italian literature in the original. I also am proficient in Spanish and reasonably so in French. Maybe a fun episode might be false cognates between Spanish and Italian. “Bisogna” vs. “bisoña”; “parecchio” vs. “parejo,” “imbarazzato” vs. “embarazada,” for instance.
Thomas C
Some of these are true cognates with Spanish and Portuguese and since I speak a little of those two languages, I was able to guess a few of these correctly 😃
Tristine Fleming
Brilliant!!
Yvonne Brunner
Too cuye

ktberio
My favorite chain of false friends in Italian:\niscriversi means register\nregistrare means record\nricordare means remember
perpetual tangent
Thanks, these are great! I'm going to use them in the undergrad Italian class I teach!
serczykowski
I love false friends, I almost wrote an MA thesis on those. :D They're so fun to trace. Sometimes they just sound similar, but they have different etymology (like English embarrassed and Italian imbarazzo vs. Spanish embarazada which means pregnant, one is from Latin, and Spanish from Arabic via Portuguese). Sometimes they have actually same etymology, but meaning changed along the way (like education is used that way since 17 century, before that it was also about child rising and manners). Yep, very fun topic. :D
slux83
Super cute! Actually I make the same exact mistakes sometimes in English!
steve Lawson
False friends interesting! This is more apparent in french.
