```Che bravo/a/ bravi/e che sei tornato/a siete tornati/e!
Well done for coming back! :) (Lit.: how good you are that you returned!) As you can see, the 'che' is used differently in the same sentence. In the first case, as 'how' for emphasising something (how tasty! che buono!), whereas in the second case, as 'that/for'-relative pronoun.
Here's a quick lesson on the numbers from 101 to 1000.
*********************
100-cento (that's why you say '50 cents' in English :3)
101-centouno
102-centodue
103-centotré
104-centoquattro
146-centoquarantasei
200-duecento
201-duecentouno
202-duecentodue
297-duecentonovantasette
300-trecento
301-trecentouno
303-trecentotré
400-quattrocento
500-cinquecento
600-seicento
700-settecento
800-ottocento
900-novecento
1000-MILLE
EVVIVA! (Yay!)
How to use them:
Simple: write the hundred (quattrocento) followed by the unit/ten (uno/dodici).
Example: 777-Settecento+settanta+sette= settecentosettantasette
213-duecento+tredici= duecentotredici
869-ottocento+sessanta+nove= ottocentosessantanove
If a number already ends with a vowel, like 'cento' and the number following it begins with the same  or with any vowel, simply eliminate the first of the two vowels:
Ex.: Cinquecentoottanta=WRONG! Remove either one of the zeros: Cinquecentottantatré.
Seicentocinquantaotto=WRONG!
Renove the first vowel, -a-
Seicentocinquantotto.

*I know we haven't done the thousands yet, meaning you can't state the year you were born in. However you can simply say 'I was born in '96' in Italian using THIS formula:
essere+del+year.
Example: Sono del '96.
Sei del '97? No, del '95!
Etc.

You could also say: sono nato/a nel '96, '97, '98 etc.*
