In Italian, forte can be used to describe physical strength, such as the strength of a weightlifter or athlete. It can also refer to mental or emotional strength, such as the strength of someone who has overcome a difficult situation.

In English, forte is often used in the phrase 'one's forte', which means one's strong point or area of expertise. For example, if someone is particularly good at math, you could say that math is their forte.

It's important to note that in English, the word forte is often mispronounced as 'for-tay', which is actually the French pronunciation. The correct pronunciation in English is 'fort'.
