Vabbè, l'unico che può tradurre questa frase in "inglese" sono io.

Non vedo l’ora di vedere la nuova stagione di Game of Thrones.

Be careful what you say; our conversation may be being bugged.

Fate attenzione a ciò che dite; la nostra conversazione potrebbe essere sotto sorveglianza. :?:

Last night, I had a strange dream about you, but the details of the dream are too embarrassing to recount.

La notte scorsa ho fatto uno strano sogno su di te, ma i dettagli del sogno sono troppo imbarazzanti da raccontare.

We should call on them, I know, but we hate calling on people to whom we have nothing to say.

Gonna give this a go, will probably be super wrong haha.

Dobbiamo chiamare su di loro, lo so, ma odiamo chiamare su delle persone con chi non abbiamo niente di dire.

I'm going to fight for the world in which I was born.

Sto per lottare per il mondo in cui sono nato.

My English friends sat down to a discussion, the subject being their future lot in the EU.

I assume that "call on" means "visit" in this context.

Dovremmo andarli a trovare, lo so, ma odiamo andare a trovare delle persone con cui non abbiamo niente da dirci.

- Dobbiamo = we must/have to, dovremmo = we should

- You can either say "andarli a trovare" or "andare a trovarli".

- "Chi" doesn't mean "who" (except for when it's an interrogative pronoun) but rather "anyone who", "the person who", "the one who" and it can't be used in the way you did. You either have to use "cui" which is invariable or "il quale" which is inflected for gender and number (hence il quale, i quali, la quale, le quali).

Bernard wrote:Sto per lottare per il mondo in cui sono nato.


"Sto per lottare" is more akin to the English "I'm about to fight".

I'd simply use a simple indicative future: "lotterò" or you can say "ho intenzione di lottare" if you wanna stress the idea of intentionality.

Tra i vari significati di call on, mi suona bene anche quello di "rivolgersi a qualcuno" in quel contesto. Ma forse sto dicendo fesserie. :P

I feel like there I am trying to hard to stick to the wording of the original, perhaps this would be better?

Yeah, the second one definitely sounds better.

Like in English, we also say dove sareste senza TV?

Pazzo is more akin to "crazy" than "fool".

This is a strange sentence in English, I'll try to approximate it :P

Posso fidarmi di te per badare ai miei bambini?

Where did you find the courage to say that to him?
