A new week another word.
The word: Brivido [ˈbrivido]
What does it mean? It means shiver/shudder/thrill.
Why is it my word of the week? Last week I was standing with one of the English teachers waiting to go into a class. She had a brivido. She explained to me that in Italy when you have a brivido people say that an angel has just walked past you. It’s quite an interesting explanation.
Here are some useful phrases
Un brivido mi corre lungo la schiena – a shiver runs down my spine
Vivere sull’orlo del brivido – live on the edge
Cercare il brivido – thrill-seeking
brivido di paura/ piacere – thrill (sensation of fright/pleasure)
Hope this was helpful 🙂
