Supercentenarians



Day 185 of My Italian Learning Journal*
_____________________

One of the stories in this evenings news was about a lady who celebrated her 108th birthday. As my wife and I watched the evening news, she remembered the lady from her home town. On the Internet I found a listing of the oldest 100 persons on record. Well, it makes for interesting reading anyway. The ages of these supercentenarians ranges from
110 to 117 -- 8% from Italy. (The following is a practice script in Italian, and grammar corrections are welcome.)

Ascolta Questo:
  • La notizia televisiva di questa sera è stata la storia di una signora che festeggiava il suo 108 ° compleanno.
    The TV news this evening had a story of a lady celebrating her 108th birthday.
  • La signora vive in una città vicina a dove è nata mia moglie.
    The lady lives in a nearby town where my wife was born.
  • Lei è una supercentenaria.
    She is a super-centenarian.
  • Buon compleanno a chi è nato oggi.
    Happy Birthday to those born today.
