Question For Speakers Of Italian

Thu Aug 02, 2007 3:03 pm

I've decided to "broaden my horizons" and learn a foreign language: Italian.  bigthumbsup 

So the question for the native speakers, what are the different meanings for the two infinitives for the verb "to play" ... "giocare" and "suonare"

Mille grazie

Giocare is to play a game, eg. Football or a computer game.

Suonare is to play a musical instrument, eg. A violin.; In Italian Suono is sound, hence Suonare is playing an instrument.
