Peasants sounds a very outdated term. Would farm workers be more up to date?

One beer for more than one peasant? Le birre, maybe?

contadini is such an outdated word even in Italy unless you are from the middle ages…a better and more current word used toady in Italy would be 'agricoltore"

I thought this lesson was supposed to be about jobs. Peasant isn't so much a job as it is a class. Farmer might be better
