Grammar Tip: Hobby or Hobbies?
The noun “hobby” is a word also used in Italian. Although there is a proper Italian word for it, passatempi, Italians are now used to talk about their hobbies. However, this noun would stay in the singular. In Italian, you never say “hobbies”, as a plural noun. People ask “quali sono i tuoi hobby?” (what are you hobbies?). Do not forget about it!
Arts and crafts – Arti e mestieri
Free time and miscellaneous – Tempo libero e miscellanea
Sports and outdoor – Sport e attività all’aria aperta
