Italian Word of the Week

Watch the video below to hear this quirky phrase! This week we teach you how to say “pride comes before a fall” – except that in Italian it involves asses and leaping stags. Or something like that.

In Italian: Chi è asino e cervo si crede, al saltar della fossa se n’avvede.

Translation: Who is an ass, and thinks himself a stag, in leaping the ditch will find his error.

What it means: Pride comes before a fall.

Catchy, eh?!
