    Ciao. "Except that you are beautiful, you are intelligent also". Come potrei dirla in italiano? Grazie per l' attenzione.

    If it is meant to be said to a girl:

    Oltre ad essere bellissima, sei anche intelligente.

    Except that vuol dire besides?
    Mi verrebbe da dire "a parte il fatto che sei bellissima, sei anche intelligente"

    In English it should really read:

    Besides being beautiful, you are intelligent also/too
    In addition to being beautiful, you are intelligent also/too.

    Not surprisingly "except" is used to delineate an exception, e.g., "You are intelligent, except that sometimes your stubbornness gets in the way."

    So right. It was Greek English.
