Talk with Seth, Rome Videos

Videos by Talk with Seth in Rome. 👋 Hello! I’m an online teacher living in Rome, Italy. How can I help you improve your English? 🇺🇸

✨ Fascinated by words and their histories? Did you know the Italian word "geroglifici" translates to "hieroglyphics" in English? This intriguing shift from a "g" to "h" happened over centuries, starting with the words' Greek origins ("hieros" meaning sacred, and "glyphein" meaning to carve). Let's talk more – can you think of any other words with this unique transformation? Share your ideas in the comments! #wordnerd #languages #languagelearning #etymology #english #italian #IngleseperItaliani #TalkwithSeth #learnenglish #italianculture #linguistics #history #ancientegypt
