What is 'Quante persone ci sono nella tua famiglia' when translated from Italian to English?

Maybe a little late answer, but in English it is "How many people are there in your family?"

"How many people are there in your family?" is an English equivalent of the Italian phrase Quante persone ci sono nella tua famiglia? The question models a difference between the two languages whereby Italian employs definite articles -- in this case, the combined form nella ("in the") -- where English does and does not use "the." The pronunciation will be "KWAN-tey per-SO-ney tchee SO-no NEL-la TOO-a fa-MEE-lya" in Pisan Italian.
