"The Italian woman is my mother."
Translation:La mujer italiana es mi madre.
Why is it not 'La italiana mujer es mi madre'? (screams, pulls out hair). Duo the owl finally beat it into me that descriptive words go after the word they're describing! That 'the gray skirt' in spanish is 'the skirt gray'. That darn owl is messing with me! Bad owl!-- no mouse for you!
"Mi" simply means "my". However, you may be confused because of "me llamo" (my name is). That's because "me llamo" very literally means "I call myself" or "I am called", which we translate into English as "my name is". In that case, "me" means "myself". Later in the course, it will be used more often and better explained.
