Bravo Sally!
A thing I hate of English is that he randomly takes foreign words and uses them without thinking about their original meaning: Italian 'bravo' can be used only for men!!! It wouldn't be a nice thing say 'bravo' to a girl, even worse than 'brava' to a boy (the latter means that you are speaking to a gay boy, but to a *boy*; the former could mean only one thing: the girl is so rude that she resembles a man!) For women, we have 'brava':) Luca Mangiat
