New Words

I went to review all skills and I was going through as normal until I came to a word I had never seen before. I had to translate "The Affair". I am sure I have never seen this in any of the lessons. Any thoughts?

Moved this to the Italian section...

We often try to show one main translation for any given word, but at times they are all equally common...se we use them all! Affare is one of those interesting words that you may have seen in a variety of contexts:

È un buon affare = It is a good deal/bargain

Non è affare tuo/Non sono affari tuoi = It is none of your business

Foreign affairs = Affari esteri

It happens. Occasionally words that you never have seen before slip through into the lessons. I've run into that quite frequently.
