"Io sono un contadino."
Translation:I am a farmer.

So, I have an Italian friend who tells me that "contadino" has a potentially derogatory connotation, as if you're talking about peasants. Bearing that in mind, is this really the best word to be teaching people as the equivalent of "farmer"? Because I wouldn't want to be talking to a farmer and accidentally call them a peasant.
