I have heard different from many people. According to most, though, "arrivederci" is more like "see you later" and "ciao" is mostly used for goodbye. Can anyone confirm this? Which is used more commonly?
Arrivederci is "until we meet again" while ciao can mean either hello or goodbye
Oh how cool! We say довиђења (doviđenja) in Serbian, and it means the exact same thing! Until we meet/see [each other again], or more literally until [the next] seeing/meeting :)
"Arrivederci" is like "see you later" but also like "goodbye". "Ciao" is like "hello", "hi" or "bye!".
It is arrivederci is see you later but it can also be used in the form of bye and ciao is hello and goodbye
Ciao is unformal greeting when you meet a person or when you leave, arrivederci is quite formal but it can only be used when you leave.
I love it. But beware: ive been doing the duolingo spanish and im much farther along in it than italian. They will eventually stop always capitilizing them and theyll even threw in multiple capitals.
yes i've been using that and the words that pop up and clicking microphone while it is talking :)
When I was in Rome I thought I heard someone say "Arrivederla." Is that actually a phrase or did I hear wrong? How does it translate exactly?
ArrivederLa is the formal version of arrivederci. Arrivederci comes from "a" (to) + "rivedere" (verb for to meet again) + "ci" (us), so it translates to something like, "until we meet again."
"La" (formal singular you) replaces "ci" when you don't know the person to whom you're speaking - hence "arrivederLa."
Yeah, but is not formal. The formal type of hello is Salve. And for goodbye Italian peaple use Arrivederci.
Is there any level of formality associated with both "ciao" and "arrivederci"? I mean can't we address the latter to a stranger or in more casual situations?
Ciao is goodbye, and is more commonly used in everyday life. Arrivederci is "until we meet again" and is more for when you know the person. Arrivaderla is the formal version of "Until we meet again" for when you don't know the person you are taking to
When i am in italy, 'a dopo' is used a lot if i am seeing the person later in the day. Also 'a presto' which means see you soon.
I just wrote Arriverdeci and it was marked wrong.. Should be Ciao but on the top here above the messages it says Arrivedeci... What!
Non and no? What do they mean? I redone many times but I haven't seen those words.
I wish it would capitolize (is that the word?) every word in the little answer box for questions with one word answers. It's too obvious if theres just one word capitolized.
you use "addio" when you are leaving for the last time, and you're sure you won't see that person ever again.
ugh...I spelled it with one letter wrong and it said it was wrong.... looks like I gotta study the spellings more haha

I thought Arriverderci was a casual "bye" and Bongiorno is properly saying "goodbye"
Buongiorno means good morning and Arrivederci means goodbye (or literally means until we meet again, but native Italians will get the message).
