misurare la febbre a qualcuno

This week’s theme is going to focus on the dreaded “flu” virus that is typical this time of year! I hope everyone stays safe and healthy this “flu” season. Here are some useful words and expressions to help you talk about being under the weather in Italian!

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the expression misurare la febbre a qualcuno, which means to take someone’s temperature.

See the expression used below:

Quando mi sono svegliato oggi, non mi sentivo bene e mia madre mi ha misurato la febbre. Mi ha fatto stare a casa perché avevo una temperatura di 39 gradi. Forse ho l’influenza!

When I woke up today, I didn’t feel well, and my mother took my temperature. She had me stay home because I had a temperature of 102.2. Perhaps I have the flu!
